It's always comforting when your work is adjudicated by industry leaders. This year, I'm privileged to be published in Logolounge 10. My work is previously featured in 9 other logolounge books, including 3 master collections.
I feel strongly that competitions like logolounge, HOW Design, or CommArts, are important. In a world where you're competing with thousands, if not millions, of other "designers" from across the world these competitions provide you with credibility.
