Logo Archive - Issue 7 "Textiles"
The first issue of LogoArchive was conceived, designed, and sent to print in a day, inspired by a panel discussion at Somerset House as part of the exhibition Print! Tearing It Up. Channeling the independent spirit of niche publishing LogoArchive seeks to surprise and delight within the context and practice of mid-century logo research, iterating with each new release.
This latest issue explores the potential of the self-published zine to expand, to be a format to share the ideas of those who inspired it. In this issue Jack Self looks back, casting a critical eye over the modernist project and then making a proposal for the future. Jumping off from the theme of textile logos, editor and designer Richard Baird touches upon the effects that metaphor can have on graphic design practice while Maria Elges, in her piece Losing The Thread, asks designers to embrace the sense of being lost.
