Book Description

7 Oct 2002
Logos have become the face of brands, companies and record labels. They are indispensable little helpers in creating a positive image, to trigger the memory, aid identification and install trust. Often deceptively simple, the task of a logo is never an easy one via extreme reduction it has to radically and perfectly distil an image or message into a simple, easily recognisable icon. Bringing together more than 3000 works by over 200 designers from around the globe, Los Logos spreads an incredible wealth of cutting edge design solutions over 444 pages, providing the ultimate collection of contemporary logo design no easy task! Well-indexed; subject-catalogued and systematically structured this popular bestseller has become the perfect research tool for any self-respecting designer or cultural enthusiast. The website www.loslogos.org (created in collaboration with Büro Destruct) offers an open platform for local and global logo design. A thriving community with access for all, it invites users to publish, propagate and share their existing designs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Los Logos 5 Dec 2002
Format:Hardcover
An excellent collection of around 3500 logos from a wide range of contemporay designers including the likes of ; Buro-destruct, DED associates, Eboy , Rinzen and Woodtli.
The book is cleverly broken up into four main sections;
Logos, Lettering, Typograms and Combinations. As well hundereds of pages of beautifully layed out images the book also contains an interesting and informative introduction about the evolution of the logo. I would recommend this book as a must have to anybody with an interest in graphic design.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very experimental 2 Sep 2010
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:45 Mins
This book packs a lot of logos, over 1700 of them.

There are two points to note, though.

First, the designs are really experimental. There are lots of unusual logo applications. While the logos have style, they lack the elegance, and hence you won't see any big name client examples. Many I guess are designed for short term usage, for events, products, etc.

The other thing is, logos featured from the same design firm have similar styles. While they look different, they feel the same. When I'm looking at a series of logos, sometimes it's hard to tell them apart.

The large number of logos featured makes this a good resource for ideas. However, if you're looking for classy logos, this might not be the book for you.

The paperback actually has a cover that's quite hard, so I won't recommend the hardcover if it cost much more.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

5.0 out of 5 stars a must have for any graphic designer 22 Jan 2004
Format:Hardcover
To some this book may sound like a nightmare. After all does a society ruled by brands, logos and trademarks really need a book full of them? Maybe not, but this book is worth getting just for its great cover design, and for anyone interested in the art of logos (like me) this is a must have. Very post modernist, and very trendy.
