Logo book author Michael Evamy on what makes great logo design If Pentagram’s Micheal Bierut reckons a book can “make better designers of all of us,” its likely to be a pretty useful tome. The designer was heaping praise on Logo: The Reference Guide to Symbols and Logotypes by Michael Evamy, which is just about to launch its new mini edition with publisher Laurence King. The book draws together more than 1,300 symbols and logotypes, demonstrating, as Bierut puts it, that “the next time you are tempted to design a logo…chances are, it’s already been done.” It features a beautifully simple new Pentagram-designed cover, which features the Spin-designed logo of the former edition. The new cover uses a bright blue mark, as a deliberate contrast to the previous black and white. All the big names are there in terms of both designers (Saul Bass, Paul Rand, Lance Wyman) and brands (Starbucks, Kodak, Disney), and there’s something compelling about leafing through such familiar visual cues and seeing them in the context of a broader design history.

The man behind Draplin Design Co. might have been jet-lagged, but this larger than life character showed no sign of flagging as he bolted through 130-odd slides, covering recent logo work, favourite Bauhaus archive material, and several photos of his sausage dog Gary.
