7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Jeff Fisher on 20 May 2006
Format: Paperback
I'm usually not one to recommend design books that are just pretty compilations of hundreds of (or 1000) designs - especially when it comes to suggesting books to those interested in logo design. Page after page of logo examples does little to explain the "process" of creating a logo to a designer. However, with 1000 Bags, Tags & Labels: Distinctive Designs for Every Industry I am making an exception. It is a pretty book - filled with exceptional examples of logos and corporate identities in use. The presentation of those logo designs in use on labels, hangtags, shopping bags, bottling, promotional items, packaging and other items makes this volume a valuable resource to those designing identities. Yes, the images provide visual stimulation. More importantly, the book should inspire logo designers to think about how their designs may be implemented to best convey the consumer message desired by a client. Those viewing the book may encounter many "brain farts" in coming up with solutions to their own design challenges. - Jeff Fisher, Logo Notions/CreativeLatitude.com and bLog-oMotives

1000 Bags, Tags & Labels Review 2 April 2006
By N. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has a LOT of great ideas and inspirations. I will say that I wish there was more variety amoung contributors. There tends to be a lot of the same designers contributing work. There is also a handful of work that I would not consider to be worthy of "book status".

Overall I do like the book. Another great book by Rockport "1000 Graphic Elements"...

Ehhh. A little disappointing... 21 Feb 2007
By js - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would totally agree with the above review, Eldridge picks many of the same brands to showcase and perhaps my aesthetic tastes are very specific or my standards are high, but not all of them deserve to be in a book that is supposedly showcasing "good" design. Maybe it's supposed to be displaying a wide range of design taste, but I expected some sort of standard to be selected - for example, there was a plain Ann Taylor carrier bag that they stuck in there (the plain off-white ones - not even the pretty grey ones with the satin handles and pink interiors!), which reinforced my opinions that the book contains more filler and fluff than clever design worthy to be praised.

If you're considering buying this, I suggest you first go to a bookstore and flip through it for yourself.

Must have for inspiration!! 10 Nov 2006
By Kimberly Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am in love with these rockport books! The 1000 series is an awesome source for inspiration. You can randomly flip through them and something will catch your eye and it starts your creative juices flowing. I would definitely say that these books should be in any design student's library. The 1000 Graphic Elements is the other one that I could not live without!
I was expecting more 5 Sep 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well, for a design book it is really poor. I mean, 1000 bags, labels and tags with 20 tags of Hillary Duff's brand. C'mon, there's gotta be better things to put on this book, they're all the same and not creative at all!
Great Book 22 May 2013

This book is amazing. So many great packages in this book. I love that it's separated by different types of packaging also. I highly recommend getting this if you love packaging and want some awesome inspiration.
