As 2010 comes to a close websites, blogs, and designers are starting to put together their lists of the best (and worst) brand redesigns of the year. Of course these lists are subjective. One list may place a logo on a “best list” while another argues it clearly belongs on the “worst list”. Either way it is interesting to see how brands have evolved over the last year. And who could forget the craziness that was the Gap logo refresh.

First and foremost forgive me for such a long absence from posting on my blog. It has been a pretty busy few months both professionally and personally, but I am ready to come back full force. To start off I would like to thank Duane Kinsey for contacting me and other designers from around the world to include us in showcasing logo and brand designer’s work areas. You can find his full post along with all the work area photos at LogoBird.com. I think it is fascinating to look at the spaces in which people design. I know I like to be comfortable, relaxed, and inspired while I design. And just in case you are wondering, no my work area is not always that clean. When I am designing it looks more like an explosion of design books, sketches, and coffee cups. This photo just happened to be me showing off my new desk between design projects.
Well it is finally here. My cover design for the Interiors Journal from Berg publishing has officially been printed and sent off to scholars around the world. I want to thank everyone who encouraged me every step of the way. I feel extremely fortunate to have helped build this journal from the ground up and I can’t wait to start on the next issue!
As promised here are the unused logo design submissions made to JeremyBolton.com. Thanks to all the designers who sent in their designs. It is a great mix of logos that, for various reasons, haven’t been used for any particular project.
It was exciting to see all the submitted logos because I am always inspired by other designers work. I hope you too can find inspiration in every one of the logos too.
These, of course, are logos that were never used, but feel free to click on each designers link to see their full portfolio of work. You will also see I threw in a few of my favorite unused logos from past projects. Again, thanks to all the designers who submitted!

One of the recurring design challenges that logo designers face is coming up with a design for something that may be viewed as cliché or obvious. However, when done right, even the mundane can become interesting. Take the above logo for example. Although the first idea that may come to a designer making a logo for a hotel may be a bed, this design takes that idea to the next level. The inviting typography and colors add to the overall idea of comfort. Find other great logos by Denis Wong on his Behance profile.
