2013 Logo Design Trends

2013 Logo Design Trends

While we’re in full-on trend-reporting mode, lets shed some light on one of our favorite topics – logo design! On this episode, we were lucky enough to have Bill Gardner, founder of LogoLounge.com to sit in with us, and talk about the logo design trends that have cropped up over the past year. I say lucky, because this guy literally wrote the book on logo design trends. Actually, make that eight books.

 

The Logo Lounge annual trend report for 2013 just came out, and we get to pick Bill’s brain for an hour about what he has been seeing, which trends have legs, and which ones are likely to be completely played-out this time next year. For this episode, we recommend listening somewhere you can look at the online trend report at the same time. We talk about a lot of visuals that are difficult to put into words, and seeing what we’re talking about would be a huge help.

 

In addition to talking about the 2013 logo design trends, we also answer a couple new listener questions about the benefits of getting professional representation as an illustrator, and how to handle micro-managing clients.

 

Wes also has a big announcement about his brand new e-books, Get Graphic Design Clients and Rock Your Portfolio Website. Both books are available on Amazon for free through June 19, 2013, so you should act fast!

I really enjoyed this show! Lots of detail about trends and what was used before. Felt like I was part of a seminar and learned lots from all of you.

What sweet serendipity! I just started a new logo project — the show’s topic timing is perfect. I started listening to it on my run today; can’t wait to finish it tomorrow. (And thanks for the limited-time offer to get those books for free!)

    Yes Jim, you can absolutely read kindle books on your computer. Amazon makes that software and it should walk you through the process quite easily. Thanks for checking them out!
