Our forthcoming April issue is going to be a bit special. Dedicated to the art of logo design, we’re going to include a definitive list of the 20 greatest marks ever created. And we want your nominations…

In order to compile our list we’re going to canvas the expert opinion of designers, academics and critics who will ultimately help us come up with 20 of the world’s greatest logo designs.

For the first stage in our research we would like to throw it open to our readers to gather your opinions. So in the comments below, simply nominate your five favourite logo designs of all time and tell us why.

We’ll use all the information we gather here on the CR blog as a starting point for further discussions with our expert panel.

We’ve also enlisted the help of Brand New over in the US who are asking their readers to do the same (see Armin’s post, Best. Logos. Ever?).

CR April will include our list of the 20 logos, plus a detailed study of the top five marks; including the story of how they were made, who designed them and exactly what it is that makes them stand out.
