Let’s go shopping in New York City! We visited 27 clothing retailer websites (with some help from Google Maps) and took a look at their logos. What messages are fashion retailers in the Big Apple looking to send with their logos? Let’s take a close look at 27 logotypes.
We all need a clever marketing piece from time to time to garner attention and promote our wares as graphic designers. Lot’s of great competition out there! I discovered a secret way of promoting your business though. I probably shouldn’t tell you, but I’m going to trust you in good will with this secret. And what is the secret?
I’ve posted a sampling of recent and past logo design work over at Behance. net. Take a look at the logo design portfolio and then search around the site a little. The interface and presentation are very unique. I really like their approach of creating “projects” rather than just the generic portfolio, though I did simply opt for the simple “portfolio” this time around.
I’m not sure about the efficacy of using third-party portfolio websites in regards to supporting and directing traffic back to a blog. I participated in the Behance network site for two reasons:
- Lot’s of other freelance graphic designers have work here, and I’m following the crowd 100% on this one.
- I have come across a lot of other logo designers with their portfolio on Behance, and it seems the quality is very high in general.
As with any new website tinker-tool, we have to just wait and see what happens. It didn’t take long to get signed up and get a pretty nicely-formatted portfolio up and going, so I’m pleased at that much!
I found this great post over at Under Consideration. There are a wealth of insightful comments readers have left about their own reasons for drawing and sketching.
My own contribution is as follows:
“Drawing affords the path of least resistance from the conceptual visual idea to objective visual media. It has the least possible amount of psychological and physical overhead weighing down on and in on one’s inner muse.”

David Airey has posted a breakthrough logo design tutorial revealing the fastest way to get the best logo design possible. Go take a gander and then wander back here.
Since his new logo is on the internet, I have a license to use it on my new limited edition product line in recognition of his achievementness with design. I now present to you 2 products, both designed with the same loving care with which David created his stunning tour-duh-force new logo.
