For our April issue, we have chosen our Top 20 logos of all time, aided by our online reader polls here and on Brand New as well as the views of 20 experts in the field. We know you’ll disagree with a lot of our choices, but such debate is half the fun of doing these things. Even if you don’t agree with what we’ve picked, we think you will enjoy the features that accompany them.

Mark Sinclair has interviewed Gerry Barney, who drew the BR logo for DRU

 

And Patrick Burgoyne talks to Karl Duschek who worked on Deutsche Bank with Anton Stankowski in 1973.

 

Eliza Williams traces the history of Bibendum

 

While Gavin Lucas’s piece on the Woolmark logo is a particularly good read as he delves into the mystery of who actually designed the famous symbol.

 

Plus we have lots more stories, myth debunking, unseen sketches and great examples of our logos in use.

 

And if that’s not all, our April issue also has a great feature by Rick Poynor on Wim Crouwel that asks (on the eve of his big show at the Design Museum) why he is held in such high regard by British designers

Thanks also to Antalis McNaughton for the great cover stock this month, Rives Design Bright White 350gsm.
