Richard wrote in to tell me about this phenominal Flickr collection of logos from the 70’s. Drooooool. I’m going to have to really sit down this weekend and go through each page. I can’t wait. I have to see if I can find that book.
If you love logos from the past especially 60’s/70’s then check out ‘Signet, Signal, Symbol’ by Walter J. Diethelm. First published in 1970 by ABC Verlag Zurich. ISBN 3-85504-014-01
Mark, already have it.
I had a sneaking suspicion you might have but thought I’d comment just in case.
uuuhhhhh!!!! awesome ! loooove it a lot!!!i’m searching from time for these gems! thanks
Here’s a link to a 29M zip archive containing all of those scans. Via cpluv.
Just realised you’ve mentioned Signet… in the side bar.
Wow, I’m so visually observant sometimes!
No problem Mark.
You should also check these books (1976 i think): Top Symbols and Trademarks”.
Iancu, very nice. I’ll check that out.
I love the style of the 70’s. Many of these logos are as fresh today as they were when they launched. You can’t beat simple when it comes to great logo design.
Here are a load more 70’s logos taken from the book World of logotypes back in the 70’s.
Very old 🙂
old is gold 😉
