Product Description

From the Inside Flap

This book explores a broad range of design projects, strategies and creative processes. You'll see how marks were designed for banks and non-profit organizations, feature films and churches ... for mergers, globalizations and diversifications. For each project, you'll get the whole story of how the logo, symbol or icon evolved smoothly (or not so smoothly) from the original concept, including:

- where ideas came from, whether instant inspirations or 2am breakthroughs
- different directions that were considered
- how initial roughs were influenced and shaped by the principles of good design and the realities of the client
- how the final design was adapted to use in various formats, from brochures and business cards to trucks and street banners
