Logo Lounge Book V

When it comes to logo design there is one brand of publication that continues to trump them all and that is the "Logo Lounge" books. Whether it be book 1, 2, 3 or 4 they are all a must-have for any designers personal reference library.

A few months back I was asked by Logo Lounge creator Bill Gardner to judge for book number 5. It was a fun process getting to review thousands of logos. A lot of time goes into reviewing each and every logo uploaded to Each logo is looked at by multiple judges and rated using a proprietary system Logo Lounge has developed. The process is blind and completely fair. This is why the end product is of such high quality and I was honored to be part of it.

I had a total of "26" of my own logos selected for book number 5 and the designs are shown below. As with book 4 my personal favorites weren't selected? So nothing is a shoe in.

Logo design continues to be my favorite type of work and tends to be the most challenging as well. It's a graphic mystery that is only uncovered after a lot of hard work.

Note: Just incase you might be wondering, I didn't get to judge my own designs. None of the judges who submitted did. The process is very well organized and thought out. The judging in my opinion is beyond reproach and carried out with the highest integrity. This is why the final content for each book reflects the very best work being produced in our industry.

They're going to have to start a new book series called 'Von's Random Whimsical Characters Lounge'.

If you don't mind my asking, how many did you enter?
I love the Advanced Refrigeration logos.

I don't really look at it as "Entering" a logo. I am a member of Logo Lounge and I just post new logo work as I go along and then if and when a book is compiled they are considered by the those judging.

I think I had a total of around "85" I had done between book 4 & 5. That said the ones I personally like the most didn't get picked for the book?

Hey John Chandler's The Skrumps! Great to see that in there. Nice work again!

I'd love to see a few of your personal favorites that DIDN'T get picked for book 5.

The ones you think are a shoo-in get left out and the ones you would rather no one know you designed get put up in lights.

Isn't that the way it goes?
