LogoArchive ExtraIssue – Past & Present
LogoArchive was conceived, designed and sent to print in a day. It was 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 archival, iterating with each new issue. The distinctive smaller format has created a space for experimentation and collaboration, as well as opportunities to hand over the zine to those who also share a similar interest in symbols and corporate identity programmes of the past. BankerWessel is one such studio. Their brand identity work carries the spirit of mid-century form language into the future. This becomes the foundation of LogoArchive’s third Extra Issue.
In the dialogue between booklet and insert (symbols past and present), two unique cover variations and the chronological sequence of BankerWessel’s own design process, this issue intends to be a small bookmark in time and a provocation to think about the iterative and cyclical nature of graphic design.
Both cover designs contain the same content.
