Stamps of Authority
A good logo never stands alone — it always acts as the front-runner for a whole identity package. At least, that's what the experts tell us.

These are just a few of the lessons you will learn if you read what our 17 leading logo designers have to say on the subject. And their messages are backed up with bags of visuals demonstrating their own best efforts in this field.

IdN Video v18n5: 8-Bit
Vintage games nostalgics
The software technology known as 8 Bit was responsible for the rapid spread and unprecedented popularity of video games in the '70s and '80s. Primitive though they were, those games grabbed the imagination of an entire generation. And now that many of them have grown up to become motion designers, they are summoning up their childhood memories to incorporate aspects of them into their latest digital creations, be they music videos, smartphone games or short movies, thus giving a 30-year-old sub-culture a whole new lease of life.
