Put logo, trademark or symbol into Amazon search and you'll come up with a few hundred books that cover every aspect of the subject, from how to design them to copyright problems. The subject is now a staple in any design publishers catalog. Hyland and Bateman's book is a notch above most because they've stripped the subject down to the basics and look at symbols only, so there are no typographic and image marks like UPS; BMW; V&A or Coca Cola, for example.

The 1300 symbols in the book are divided into two sections: Abstract and Representational. These are subdivided into categories like stripes (fifteen examples) arrows (twenty-five) radiating/circular (twenty-three) sun (fourteen) birds (thirty-two) or hearts (twenty-two). I thought the Representational pages the most fascinating because designers have to use a familiar object and change it into a unique version for a company so it will be recognisable anywhere. Anything that has a curve to it (bird, heart, eye) seems to encourage designers to create some wonderful company brandmarks.

Scattered through the pages are some case histories (over two or three pages) where there is a closer look at selected company marks. These are the only pages that use colour. All the symbols have credits for company, country, designer, date and a brief description of what the design is for.

There are a few hundred names, from around the world, in the designer index and Pentagram gets the most inclusions with sixty-two symbols, Chermayeff & Geismar get thirty-six and Karol Silwka (from Poland) gets thirty-one. Oddly the great designer Saul Bass only has one entry and Herb Lubalin none, I suppose because he was essentially a type man. There is a company and sector index also.

HASH(0x9a13f35c) von 5 Sternen Simplicity, neutrality, clarity, wit and a bit of playfulness = a great commercial symbol 19. Juni 2011

Put logo, trademark or symbol into Amazon search and you'll come up with a few hundred books that cover every aspect of the subject, from how to design them to copyright problems. The subject is now a staple in the design publishers catalog. Hyland and Bateman's book is a notch above most because they've stripped the subject down to the basics and look at symbols only, so there are no typographic and image marks like UPS; Dole; MetLife; Exxon or Coca Cola, for example.

The 1300 symbols in the book are divided into two sections: Abstract and Representational. These are subdivided into categories like stripes (fifteen examples) arrows (twenty-five) radiating/circular (twenty-three) sun (fourteen) birds (thirty-two) or hearts (twenty-two).

Oddly the great designer Saul Bass only has one entry and Herb Lubalin none, I suppose because he was essentially a type man. There is a company and sector index also.

The book is a nice clean production with a maximum of nine images to a page. My only criticism is that the paper is a rather thick which makes the book a bit unwieldy while handling it. I think this is a worthwhile buy for design professionals and students.

HASH(0x994e49d8) von 5 Sternen Content five, binding zero 30. Juli 2011
Von Luigi Facotti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As reviewed in the WSJ, this is a very welcome addition to the field of logo design. One can quibble that some of the leading French, German and Swiss designers are not covered in greater detail - book seems very UK centric especially in the color spreads for the Underground, BOAC, etc.
The manufacture of the book is not so great (printed in China of course - whatever happened to the printing presses of the Western world?), binding fell apart 6 days outside the Amazon return date - not cheap and poorly assembled. Check your copy carefully if you decide to buy this.

HASH(0x994a52c4) von 5 Sternen A Must-Have in any Logo-Design Library 30. April 2015
Von R. Burr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Exactly what I was looking for, with ample references taken from around the world and divided into categories, and printed on heavy paper. Beautiful for idea stimulation. The only thing i would change would be to make the book physically taller and wider so it could be opened and examined without having to physically hold it open.

HASH(0x9a13f38c) von 5 Sternen Good reference book 14. Februar 2012
Von Pat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This is a competent book on symbols being used as brand marks. I have to admit I expected much more, given the background of Pentagram as one of the leading identity firms in the world. They do not show just Pentagram's work, but even so, there are a bunch of brands that are just pitiful. I would reconsider buying this one.

HASH(0x994e4924) von 5 Sternen If you're looking for symbol inspiration, this is the book you need. 20. Januar 2012
Von Zach Wolf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this because Amazon suggested it when I was shopping for other design books. Turns out, it's awesome. Just in case you also skip over the description, this book is huge. There is a massive amount of pages to flip through, heavily graphic reliant with some small amounts of text, mostly just describing who owns the logos.

Highly recommended.
