Two great books to add to my collection!


Sorry for not posting anything lately my Dell laptop managed to almost kill itself and I did not feel like posting from my phone as you do not have the control that you do on a computer. Luckily I am a bit of a geek when it comes to computers and I managed to fix it after many hours gazing into a wheezing black lifeless laptop screen.
Anyway whilst my computer was on its death bed I purchased 2 books, one called “Little Black Font Book” and the other called “Logo Design Love” (I also bought a few non graphic design books such as Derren Brown tricks of the mind, and yes it is as amazing as it sounds…).


The Little Black Font book has a good handful of really nice fonts that you can purchase from HYPEFORTYPE although some of them are a bit pricey. I guess you get what you pay for!


My Favorite font/typeface I is called Aphrodite Slim as it is absolutely stunning. There are a few others such as Block Gothic that a great sans-serif font that I will purchase.

The other book is called Logo Design Love that I purchased on Amazon, I haven’t got around to reading this due to being at my summer job working like a slave. Having a quick look at this appears to show the basic way to create a logo to the clients needs and also  talks more about the ideas behind the logo design rather than just showing you a lot of images of logos. This book is not eye candy in the way that there are a lot of images, but it does look like it has a lot of information that could help you become a great designer.
