  • 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!

  • RSS Feeds Fixed!

    Posted on Dec 03, 2009 by Deron Sizemore in Site News | 0

    It was brought to my attention earlier via Twitter (thanks Twitter friends) that my RSS feeds were not functioning properly. I though that was interesting considering they have worked for nearly a year with seemingly no issues, but sure enough when I tested a title link in them, I got a blank page that said “Invalid GET Data.”

  • Best of August and September, 2009

    Posted on Oct 11, 2009 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 2

    I’ve been keeping quite busy lately with freelance work, so as you can see I’ve just not taken time to post a new article in the “best of” series. I finally had some time tonight so I decided to sit down and do it. I’ll try to be on time for the Best of October, but no promises.

  • Changes to LogoGala

    Posted on Aug 11, 2009 by Deron Sizemore in Site News | 7

    I’ve been swamped lately with freelance work, but had the time today to change some things around with how submissions are handled.

    A while back Graham Smith of ImJustCreative wrote a couple nice reviews where he shared his thoughts on the direction of LogoGala’s featured section and how beneficial it is to get glimpse inside the designer’s mind from the interview questions asked.

  • Best of June and July, 2009

    Posted on Aug 05, 2009 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 4

    The past month or so I’ve been extremely busy with freelance work. On one hand this is great that I am continuing to build my freelance business. On the other hand it’s not-so-great as my personal projects suffer. I’ve been able to adhere to the normal gallery posting schedule of two new general gallery submissions each day and three featured submissions each week, but aside from that, I’ve not had time to do much else. As a result of this – as you may have noticed – I have not posted a “best of” article the last two months, so I’m making up for that now. This is the best of June and July, 2009. A total of my favorite 20 designs (10 from June and 10 from July) are featured in this entry. Enjoy!

  • Best of May, 2009

    Posted on Jun 12, 2009 by Deron Sizemore in Logo Design | 1

    It’s that time again, and yes I’m a few eleven days late. I know, I know I’m a slacker and I apologize.

    The submissions just keep getting better with each month which only makes my job that much more difficult in choosing the best designs each month. Thank you to everyone who submitted designs. Enjoy the Best of June, 2009:
