1. I'm on the Cybils blog today

Cybils2013SmallThere's a post about my position as Literacy Evangelist for the Cybils up on the Cybils blog today. I must admit that I do MUCH less work for the Cybils than the category organizers do. But I am always prepared to jump up and down and spread the word about the wonderfulness that is the Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards. 

Cybils+Logo+-+Generic+BW-01Also on the Cybils blog this week, in addition to profiles of the other organizers (this year's blog editor Ms. Yingling is posting those two per day), a timeless black and white version of our logo (created by the talented Sarah Stevenson). This was created in response to a request for a version without a year displayed, so that people wouldn't have to update their blogs so frequently. If you are a fan of the Cybils, feel free to display this (and perhaps link to the Cybils blog), to show your support. Updated Cafe Press Cybils bling will be coming soon.

2. Jeremy Pruitt aka Thinkmule for Bordo Bello

thinkmule

I really love Jeremy Pruitt’s (aka Thinkmule) contribution to the AIGA Bordo Bello event. The skateboard art show, which runs now through July 3 features a gaggle of hot design talent and celebrates the Colorado lifestyle. Jeremy’s deck features seventeen custom logos, each loosely paying homage to a different aspect of Colorado’s rich and vibrant history. To see all the boards, visit the Bordo Bello website.

Also, be sure to check out Jeremy’s portfolio. Recently updated, the site hosts a curated collection of personal illustration and lettering work.

3. Two Times Elliott

two times elliott

Two Times Elliot is a London-based studio, whose focus centers around print, identity and web. Their style is a mix of typographic elements, clean lines and bold color palettes, bringing each design to life with its own personality. I’m also impressed by their ability to incorporate mixed media into their work without disrupting the flow of the design.

Chris Gardner, who drew our beautiful Drawn logo, shows some sketches and preliminary work for a logo he drew for a new iOS word game called Letter by Letter that launches today.

I’ve been playing a closed beta of the game for the past few weeks, and I’m complete addict. Its the perfect mix of Scrabble, Boggle, and Risk with short, but challenging turns that require some crafty strategy and a healthy vocabulary.

Casual Dining Restaurant in Southern California

Dennis Salvatier has a philosophy about graphic design. Great and effective design is the product of creativity, knowledge and information. He's been putting that philosophy into practice for 13 years, working with clients such as Lakeshore Learning Materials, Century 21, and Pacific Sunwear.

Salvatier Studios specializes in designing unforgettable and effective brand identities for small and mid-sized businesses. A powerful and memorable brand identity is essential for every company, and Dennis believes that branding services should be reasonably priced to fit the budget of each individual client - no matter their size.

Dennis states, "Branding doesn’t need to cost a million dollars, it just has to look like it did."

11. Help Ray Fenwick inch further towards having infinite variations...



Help Ray Fenwick inch further towards having infinite variations on his logo (examples).

lemoatjuice:

Will you help me make more variations of my logo? 

Hello? Will you help me reach my target of “near infinity” logos? Will you help me populate image searches with these, my perfect language? It is starting to seem as though I may never realize this dream alone.

If you can use illustrator, and have 15 minutes to pump out a variation (examples) , I will send you a postcard in thanks. Then I will post your variation with credit.  

E-mail hello AT rayfenwick.ca if interested.  I will send you a template file with “instructions”.

Yrs infinitely,
Ray

Even though I still had to go to their (not updated since 2008) website to figure exactly what the Juice Agency does, I liked this clever promo that uses playful iterations of their (I’m guessing new) logo.

13. Tony Dispigna

tony dispigna

Tony Dispigna may be a very influential craftsman to today’s “throwback” design connoisseurs without many realizing. In 1969, shortly after graduating from Pratt, Tony joined forces at the legendary Lubalin Smith & Carnase. He has worked to produce notable classic typefaces like Lubalin Graph and Serif Gothic. Tony is currently a professor at Pratt and the New York Institute of Technology, and has also taught at SVA. Although much of Tony’s work is based on type, he also has a really good sense for creating wonderful logos, as you will see below.

14. What makes an image an icon?

Image, branding, and logos are obsessions of our age. Iconic images dominate the media. In his new book, Christ to Coke, art historian Professor Martin Kemp examines eleven mega-famous examples of icons, including the American flag, the image of Christ's face, the double helix of DNA, and the heart.

15. Mikey Burton

Mikey Burton

It’s great when you find that one designer that can wear various design hats. Such is the case with Philadelphia’s Mikey Burton. Looking through his portfolio, I’m impressed with the amount, style and conceptual range of his work. The edgy boldness of the letterpress prints is a nice balance to some of the quieter, more restrained logos.

I love that kind of can-do, all encompassing approach to design. Mikey does it well, and it would appear he’s having a blast doing it!

16. New H2D Logo

H2D-4button-lorezI’ve been working on this site for a little while now and decided it was time for a new logo. All I’ve really had until now is the Potato-Boy header with the How to Draw Stuff type. Although I kind of like that little guy he’s hardly a logo.

The other day as I was jotting down some reminder notes an idea popped into my head. Luckily I was sitting at my computer so I decided to work it up in Adobe Illustrator while everything was still fresh in my mind.

I took a few snap shots as I went to show you how I typically work through the development stage and added my some of my thoughts to the captions. Unfortunately a few of the shots are a little on the small side so the notes below don’t read as well as they could, but I think you’ll get the idea as you go through them… I’ll try to fix those later. Note to self- zoom in, enlarge art, and leave a little white space before taking snapshots.

I’m pretty happy with the look of this one so far but I’ll probably revisit it at a later date and make a few tweaks. Sometimes the ideas go quick (like this one) other times I need to let them rattle around inside my head a little bit before they come out. I’d think I’ll add something a little more cartoon-ish to that space above the type on the right so it looks more like it belongs to the Bob Ostrom Studio family, but that’ll have to wait until I’m finished with my next set of deadlines.
