LogoArchive Issue 7

LogoArchive Zine Issue 7, designed and edited by Richard Baird, published by BP&O

LogoArchive Issue 1 was conceived, designed and sent to print in a day. It was inspired by a panel discussion at Somerset House as part of the exhibition Print! Now on to its seventh numbered release (and the tenth in the series), LogoArchive continues to reconfigure itself with each new issue with the intention of surprising and delighting. This issue celebrates the symbols of the textiles industry and features texts by Jack Self, Editor-in-chief of Real Review, Maria Elges of Midge Press and Richard Baird, BP&O. As with each previous release, this is issue is marked by its own materiality with a gate-folded cover and a silkweave emboss that evokes the surfaces of textiles.

This and other issues of the LogoArchive zine are available to buy at LogoArchive Shop.

LogoArchive Extra Issue: Standards Manual

LogoArchive Extra Issue: Standards Manual. Designed by Order, featuring a cover logo by Lance Wyman

LogoArchive and Standards Manual are delighted to launch an Extra Issue dedicated to Federal logo design, which includes some of the States’ most iconic symbols. Designed by Order and featuring texts by Bill Shaffer, Valerie Pettis and Lance Wyman, this Extra Issue tells the little-known story of the Federal Design Improvement Program (FDIP). This program links some of the country’s most recognisable symbols and involved designers such as Rudolph de Harak, Tom Geismar and Raymond Lowey. The booklet is the first to bring these symbols together, and through the words of Bill Shaffer, Lance Wyman and Valerie Pettis, brings a uniquely personal insight into the program and its ambitious outlook for Federal design throughout the 70s in the United States of America.
