Identity: Best of The Best 2006 (from Russia with love)

l2-176-01.jpg
Identity is the first Russian magazine that covers the field of branding and commercial design. They have just released the results of the international contest of logos, trademarks and corporate identity Identity: Best of The Best 2006

Looking for logo types r u?

Designer “Yes, we need the logo in vector format before we can finish the brochure and go to print”
Client “What’s a vector? Can’t you just use the powerpoint version of the logo I sent you? We need to have this finished by the end of the week”
Designer “We can use that logo supplied, but the quality will be very low”
Client “ok, I’ll see if anyone can find it, I’m not sure if we have it.”

Sound familiar? Some times it is just quicker and more painless to look here first. It’s a website that has long been in the arsenal of many a time restricted designer. A massive archive of corporate logos that can be downloaded in vector or illustrator format. It’s long overdue that this was granted an archival page of it’s own. So for the record, bookmark logotypes.

And, it seems at least finally the Russians beat the Americans to something. Gaining in momentum is a similar site, where between the two, you should be able to find the brand you are looking for.
