Der Titel Logo R.I.P, bereits in der zweiten aktualisierten Version, handelt von alten weltbekannten Logos, die durch eine Redesign abdanken durften.
Pressetext: A fully revised and updated edition of Logo R.I.P. will be released in September 2012. The core thesis of Logo R.I.P. is that defunct logos that were once an integral part of our visual culture and our lives are worthy of commemoration, or even preservation. Many of the included trademarks may be regarded as icons of their time or international design classics.
In this updated edition, the logos of Abbey National, AT&T, DSM, Kodak, Lucent, Rover and Xerox are added to the logo graveyard – a selection that includes some of the past century’s most resonant graphic symbols, such as BOAC, British Steel, CCA, NASA and Pan Am. Each entry includes a short, yet comprehensive, design and cultural history to ensure that although these logos may be gone, they are not forgotten.
The First Edition of Logo R.I.P, from 2003, received much critical acclaim and won several design prizes. The book presently features in the prestigious international exhibition “Graphic Design – Now in Production” co-organised by Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. Logo R.I.P. includes a foreword by design luminary Gert Dumbar and is reissued in a gold gilt-edged edition.
