  • New Host and Missing Logos

    Posted on Jan 21, 2014 by Deron Sizemore in Site News | 0

    I know I haven’t wrote a blog post in a looooooong time. I apologize, but I just haven’t had the time to do so. I just wanted to quickly let everyone know about a small issue that’s been popping up.

  • Logo of the Month - September 2012

    Posted on Oct 02, 2012 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 2

    I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, so rather than explain all the reasons why I haven’t, I’ll just get down to business.

    Instead of picking 10 or so designs each month as the “best of,” I’m going to (hopefully) pick one design each month as the “Logo of the Month.”

    It’s not that I don’t have the desire to put the time into the site to pick 10 designs, it’s just that it’s tough to find time lately (which is why the blog has suffered).

    At any rate, here’s your Logo of the Month! Enjoy!

  • Looking Ahead to 2012 and Beyond

    Posted on Jan 08, 2012 by Deron Sizemore in Site News | 0

    First off, I want to wish everyone a happy new year! Hopefully 2012 brings good fortune your way. Second, I apologize for the lack of updates to the blog in the past year. Since the birth of my daughter, it’s become more difficult to find time to update the gallery along with consistent updates to the blog.

  • The Ryder Cup Gets a New Logo

    Posted on Feb 06, 2011 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 2

    New and Old Ryder Cup Logos

    Anyone that knows me, knows I’m an avid golfer. I couldn’t wait to post this blog entry when I found out that the Ryder Cup had redesigned their logo.

    The original design is extremely dated and has a very clip art feel to it, especially the Ryder Cup. The new design gives the brand a very sophisticated look in a crest-like style.

  • Best of January, 2011

    Posted on Feb 06, 2011 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 0

    It’s been a couple months since I last posted a “best of” entry. It was a busy holiday time with family and work and I just didn’t take the time to post. I apologize to those designers that submitted designs in November and December and didn’t get the opportunity to be in the “best of” entry for those months. I hope to be back on track going forward. Here’s your best of January, 2011. Thanks to everyone that submitted a logo.

  • Best of the Previous Eight Months, 2010

    Posted on Oct 01, 2010 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 3

    Time seems like a trick sometimes; I feel like it’s only been a few weeks at most since my last blog entry. It’s been much longer than that, though. I apologize for the huge time gap between posting, but I’ve had a lot going on in the last eight months. So much that I basically only had enough time to keep the gallery updated with new designs, and nothing else. The reason for the lack of time lately is because of the birth of my daughter. For anyone that doesn’t have kids, wow, it makes it tough to fit in web updates between all of the feeding and changing. I feel like I’m slowly starting to get back into some resemblance of a routine and plan to start updating the LogoGala blog on a more regular basis again with at a minimum, the best designs of each month. I also have some major changes in store for LogoGala, but I’ll save that for a later blog entry. So, without further ado, here are my favorite designs over the last eight months.

  • Best of January, 2010

    Posted on Feb 23, 2010 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 2

    It was a good first year for LogoGala. The site has grown much fast than I ever anticipated and is getting close to the 100,000 page view per month mark which is by far the most popular site I’ve ever developed. I’m hoping to surpass that mark sometime in the next few weeks. I’m a little late posting the latest of the “Best of” series (again) but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Here’s the best of January, 2009:

  • New Logo Concept for the Spartans?

    Posted on Jan 27, 2010 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 8

    Michigan State Spartans Original Logo (left) and New Logo (right)

    There’s big logo news coming out of Big Ten country and Michigan State Spartan fans are not happy about it. Last month, the Board of Trustees at Michigan State University filed for a trademark application for the redesigned mark of Michigan State Spartans athletic teams. I have to say, I agree with the fans.

  • Best of 2009

    Posted on Jan 07, 2010 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 6

    As you may have noticed, there was not a blog entry for the best of December. Basically, to make a long story short, my full time position in Information Technology was eliminated at the first of December. The only computer I’ve used the last few years belonged to my previous employer. So, when my position was eliminated, so was my laptop. As you can imagine, December was a hectic month. I had to purchase a new computer and ended up getting a new MacBook Pro, which I love by the way. The new Mac took a little getting used to coming from using Windows my whole life, but I’m getting used to new system and hoping to be productive again going forward.

    The past couple of days I’ve went through the 800+ submissions from 2009 to find the best. I want to thank everyone who submitted logos in 2009, I appreciate all of the submissions and continued support. Unfortunately, all 800+ could not be the best of 2009 so after going through all of the submissions, the result is the following 45 logos which all stood out to me in one way or another. Enjoy!
