13thirtyone Will Be In Logo Lounge Book 5!

I just found out over the weekend that two logos I designed will be included in the fifth book by Logo Lounge. This is an extreme honor and I'm very excited about it. Logo lounge chooses logos based on industry trends, excellence in typography and overall concept. The two logos that were chosen are as follows:




Ironically, both logo options were not chosen by the client. They both were presented as options, and others were chosen. I designed the top one (The Modern Woman's Divorce Guide) to reflect your modern day woman in bright pink, an very feminine color. The symbolism of her walking over the text shows a longing to move on from the divorce; something the guide is all about.

The Ambiance logo is a fun and flirty mark I created for a small business owner in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The logo can be taken quite literally, in that the text itself is surround with an "environment." On another note, the bright green is taken from a color the store owner had painted her walls with. The playful font is representative of the unique tone of the store, while the floral elements add a feminine touch.

I find that the Logo Lounge series is a great source of inspiration and also helps designers to stay on top of what's going on in the design industry. Previous versions are available from Amazon.com.
