Logo Design Love book sneak peek

Logo Design Love book spread

The writing is done and dusted, and my packaged InDesign files have been sent to Peachpit‘s production team. All that’s left now is the wait between press, post-press, and shipping. Given how this is my first book, it’s going to be strange when actually I get to hold a copy.

To let you see how the pages look, I’ve just uploaded a few inside images to the Logo Design Love Facebook page—launched today.

Anyone who becomes a “fan” of the page will automatically be entered into a book giveaway drawn on December 18th (the day the book is scheduled to be warehoused for shipping).

If you don’t use Facebook, no worries. There’ll be more copies given away here.

I know not everyone will buy a copy, and for those who don’t, I’m planning to give you a full chapter as a free PDF download. More on that later.

Logo Design Love book cover

This is the first time I’ve created a Facebook fan page—which Vivien can attest to (thanks for the settings help!)—and I notice that fans are able to upload photos to the page. So I got thinking, if you fancy sharing any of your design work, I’m more than happy to feature the most “liked” logos here on the blog—perhaps at the end of each month, depending on whether you’re interested.

I’ll be sure to stop by regularly, so if you want feedback on a design, mention it in your photo’s comment and I’ll do what I can to help.

Fancy a freebie?

  1. Thanks for the link, David. Glad you got things figured out with the FB’s Fan page.
    I’m so excited for you, as I’m the one who wrote the book ;) All the best!!!

  2. Just added to my Amazon WIshlist – cannot wait. Read this site everyday via RSS, really look forward to a print version.

  3. Anytime, Vivien. Did you mean to say you wrote the book? :)

    Neil, brilliant to know. Here’s hoping for a smooth print run and shipping.

  4. I followed the link of peachpit and there is a rough cut version of the book. what is the difference????

  5. From the Peachpit website, Victor:

    “The Rough Cuts service from Safari Books Online gives you exclusive access to an evolving manuscript that you can read online or download as a PDF and print. A Rough Cuts book is not fully edited or completely formatted, but you’ll get access to new versions as they are created.”

    My publisher’s initial plan was to have chapters released as a “rough cut” as we progressed through the writing and design, so for example, the first chapter would’ve been available months ago. But not all plans work as anticipated.

    I notice you can see the contents page on the Peachpit site (albeit a very shortened version, showing no subheadings).

  6. Mmmm I just checked it out… I like what I saw… this just makes me more impatient to get my copy David!!! :)


  7. David, this is so exciting. Your first ‘baby’… out of (hope hope hope) many more to come… :-D

  8. Who knows, Cat, but thanks very much. We’ll see how this one gets on.

  9. Looking forward to this very much, as you’ve always been very consistant – nice one

  10. Hey Rajesh, I just saw your tweet saying you’ve pre-ordered. Thank you!

  11. I’ve pre-ordered it! Good job guys. :)

  12. Hi David, can’t wait to read the book! I’ve became a fan on facebook and suggested your page to all my friends.

  13. Thanks, Dnyanesh and Sam. That’s a big help.

    I’m a little disappointed that it’s being released just after Christmas. It would have made a really great present.

    I can’t wait to get a copy, though :)

  15. A pre-Christmas delivery would’ve been great, Anna, no doubt, but it can’t be helped unfortunately. I’m very glad you’re interested, though. Cheers.

    Looks amazing David, I have been following your progress on this and am really pleased for you. Well done on all your hard work.


  17. David, I came home from holiday to find your book in my post box. It looks great and I’m looking forward to reading it :-)

  18. Thanks very much, Jen. Good of you to say. I’m not sure if you’ve seen it already, but chapter seven is available as a free PDF download.

  19. That is good news, Cat. When you get a chance, I’d love to know your thoughts.

    I ABSOLUTELY loved your book! so friendly and down-to-earth! I felt identified with so many situations described there!

    Thank you for this invaluable resource!

  21. Hi Carolina, thanks again for your kind words, your review on Amazon, and for visiting my blogs. It’s a pleasure to help where possible.

  22. Great book, everyone who is even thinking about logo design, “needs” to have this book. Once you start reading, you’ll know why.

    Lots of great information for everyone, very informative. Thank you for sharing all that knowledge with us.


  23. Cheers, Orlando.
