LogoArchive #2 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Today’s zine format and the revival of an independent publishing spirit of the past is a provocation. It is an opportunity to further the practice of research, archival and circulation beyond the book, to offer a counterpoint to mainstream design publications, to develop a dialogue between the two with the intention of elevating all forms of publishing.

LogoArchive Issue 2 is a compact 16 pages printed by WithPrint on Colorplan Ebony 175gsm with a white ink. It also features a Colorplan Candy Pink 175gsm insert printed with black, bound with black staples. It is a small second step but has ambitions to grow into a compelling and accessible series.

LogoArchive is a total project. It is an expression of designer as author. It was developed as a way to investigate the potential of both individual object and ongoing project. To maintain and develop a dialogue. To make temporality a critical and observable component in both content and materiality (each new edition will be marked in time with an additional page).

LogoArchive is marked by its conceptual and philosophical foundations but also its graphic immediacy, an interplay between the visual language of archival and children’s storybooks, as well as its materiality and production. These reflect the pragmatism of documentation and the metaphorical play present in some of the logos, and LogoArchive’s digital origins as an Instagram account and its new material manifestation. LogoArchive is founded on an enthusiasm for a well-crafted logo; a convivial metaphor, a communicative immediacy and smart use of form language. However, in print, it was never conceived as a document with a singular intention; the simple documentation of logos, rather a delivery mode in which to build a story and share thoughts. A conversation on Twitter; digital dialogue lost in the passage of time but forever coded into the electronic aether, is materialised as ink on paper and written into the story and ongoing development of the zine. This sits alongside an anthropological text; a musing on the distinctive qualities of the human eye.
