Book Shines Spotlight on Best of International Logo Design

Local design agency, Small Dog Design is to be recognised among top designers for contributions to the world of corporate identity with the release of LogoLounge 9, hitting shelves this December.

LogoLounge.com, in partnership with HOW/F+W Media, announces the launch of LogoLounge 9, and congratulates the 500+ designers and design firms that earned their place within its pages by continuing to push the boundaries of logo design.

The 2,000 logos in LogoLounge 9 were chosen from a pool of roughly 25,000 by an international panel of jurors, each of whom has earned his/her own respective design badges of honor:

Kendrick Kidd / Shepherd Agency / Florida, USA
Matt McCracken / Doublenaut / Ontario, Canada
Sebastian Padilla / Anagrama / Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Ian Paget / LogoGeek / Berkshire, England
Tracy Sabin / Sabingrafik / California, USA
Christopher Simmons / MINE / California, USA
Matt Stevens / Design Office of Matt Stevens / North Carolina, USA
Alina Wheeler / Designing Brand Identity / Pennsylvania, USA

“The LogoLounge books are both a trophy and a resource,” explains LogoLounge creator Bill Gardner. “The website is where the greatest volume of research and networking takes place, but the books have become must-haves for designers and logo voyeurs alike due to the high-level vetting that occurs, as well as the 20+ case studies that feature a wide range of branding projects.”

LogoLounge 9 will feature the logo for Grampians Podiatry Clinic designed by local designer Michelle Ryrie, from Small Dog Design, Ballarat.

Born and bred in Ballarat, Michelle completed a degree in Visual Arts majoring in Graphic Design, at the University of Ballarat. Upon graduation she took up a position as part of the in-house design team at Sovereign Hill, Australia’s award-winning tourist attraction.

After 7 years at Sovereign Hill, Michelle chose to diversify her portfolio by relocating to a large local design studio. Here she managed all aspects of design and production for a broad client base, working on diverse projects at local, national and international levels.

In early 2007, Michelle joined the pack at Small Dog, bringing valuable experience in managing projects ‘from concept to completion’, and effecting creative yet practical design solutions. Michelle’s methodical approach and perfectionist nature ensures projects are completed to the highest quality.

Michelle has a great talent for understanding clients’ needs and developing designs that really connect with both clients and with the wider public.
