As a graphic designer one of the most frequent tasks is designing a logo. A large and well arranged collection of different logos can be found in the book Symbol by Angus Hyland and Steven Bateman published by Laurence King Publishing Ltd. The book contains 1300 symbols which are grouped by different visual attributes. Every symbol has information about its client, designer, logo meaning and origin respectively. A few selected logos have a more information about their development process. I like skimming through this book, sometimes just to read one of the development stories, but I also like going through the book just before I start a new project for Cohezion simply to get myself into a creative mode. Definitely a very recommendable book.About the authors: Angus Hyland studied Art and Design at the Royal College of Art. He has been partner at Pentagram, London since 1998. Hyland has already published 5 books including C/ID: Visual Identity and Branding for the Arts and the Picture Book: Contemporary Illustration.
