En tiempos de ocio

From time to time I’ll see a list of ‘logo design resources’ being circulated around social media websites, but more often than not, I’m disappointed at the quality of links. So I’ve searched through my bookmarks, trawled the other ‘resource’ articles, and asked some designers for their input.

Here I present a choice selection of logo design resources that I believe are beneficial to serious designers (with a touch of humour here and there).

Where to find excellent logo typefaces

Logo design trends

  • Logo design trends in 2008
    Subjective, as with a lot of logo design, and whilst I do keep an eye on trends I always design logos that work as flat art. That way, the logo is still effective once the trend has passed.
