Logo Design Love Awards
Logo Design Love Awards

Well, this was exciting reading. Ten weeks ago David Airey embarked on the Logo Design Love Awards series. He put a ton of work into it, and it shows.

Several days back, he posted the Logo Design Love Reader Appreciation Awards.

Then, several hours ago (and right when I was rushing off to dinner), he posted the Logo Design Love Awards judges’ verdict.

The comparison between the readers and the judges is quite interesting. (Note: below is the category comparison. The placement from the judges have been added where they fall).

As one of the judges I found the whole process rather interesting. As the entries were varied in subject and such, I decided to keep pretty much to The Six Universal Attributes Of a Great Mark.

Well, except for a few points. I took out one. Distinctive. And added one of my own. Memorable.

Below are the other judges donating time and comments to the awards:

David deserves a standing ovation for doing a bang-up job on the logo design awards. Dontcha think?
