4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic, if overly technical, book on marks and their design, Jan. 28 2008
By 
Don Eglinski (Edmonton, Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Marks of Excellence (Paperback)
While I adore this book, many designers might find it a bit dreary. While the examples are an excellent, if classical, look at marks from around thew world, it's theory is where it shines.

And here is where it remains a bit esoteric from the average designer's care or even perhaps understand. It diagrams how subtle elements should be contrasted with the more blatant ones, but I can't say it uses the best examples or language to do so. That may have more to do with when it was originally written, but again I can't say for sure.

For a tome of useful contemporary logos -- opposed to the theory of logo design -- make this a secondary purchase decision after Logo, by Michael Evamy.

This review is from: Marks of Excellence (Paperback)
This is a beatifully designed book that is very complete. There are hundreds of examples of good design, and enough text to satisfy those who need detailed explanations. Quite simply, I have seen nearly all the books available on logo design, and this one of the best I have ever seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Art Book, March 10 2001
By

This review is from: Marks of Excellence (Paperback)
I basicly see this book as an art book. Enjoy the design of old and contemporary trademarks and their functions. The text though, is very technical - as in other areas of marketing, the science of trademarks and branding is overacademized for nothing.
