Pretty Much Everything Logos

One of the things I liked with the book was all the beautiful images. That and the sheer quality of the book itself. The paper is thick and glossy making a perfect coffee table book.

Pretty Much Everything logo sketches

(Above) you see a ton of sketches Aaron Draplin did for some of the logos designed. As a logo designer myself, I really enjoyed looking over this section. I love to see how other artists get to the final product.
