    Just had a look at Los Logos on amazon. At the moment I use Pinterest for inspiration and ideas and I don't think buying that book will be £40 of value to me. Not when I pay zilch for Pinterest.

    'A Smile In The Mind' is by far the best book for me, many different styles which help strike random inspiration!

    Hi Will, there is plenty of logo design books like catalogue and I agree it's good to have them and take a look, but I believe some books about logos can give us more information than these catalogue's type. I found very useful Logo Design Love by David Aireys. He speaks of many aspect when it comes to creating a logo. I heard logo modernism is good too, but didn't check it yet. I love the book "Made to stick" it doesn't say it's about logo, but in fact the book shows very important rules when designing and we can apply them to logo design.

    Aaron Draplin is a stand up guy! I recently got a chance to meet him this last year after missing one of his earlier speaking engagements in Denver a few years back. He is an inspiration as a designer& entrepreneur. I can tell you, you won't be disappointed in his book! I've actually gotten multiple copies and given them as gifts to other designers I know.

    Coincidence or not, but I actually ordered 3 of these books today before I saw this video, including Aaron Draplin's book, which I'm the most excited about!. Can't wait until they arrive tomorrow. 😀
    Thank you for another great video Will! Btw, when can we expect your first book? 🙂
