A Recipe for the Best in Worldwide Logo Design!

Nearly a year ago, good friend, mentor and author Peleg Top invited me to judge entries for his latest book entitled Logolicious – a pocket-sized treasure packed with today's most visually delicious logos. It was my honor to be part of the prestigious jury which edited and shaped the book. Each selected work captures a unique concept, stunning typography and a perfect balance of graphic design's formal elements. These logos personify a brand, promise a message and persuade an audience and I'm excited to announce you can now see the collected work first hand. The book is now available online and in bookstores everywhere.

So dig in and enjoy “a tasty collection of the best logos from around the globe.” Then, discover 9 more compact resources every designer should carry in their pocket.
