I’ve launched a small website to feature some of the world’s most iconic logo designers. Included are Herb Lubalin, Steff Geissbuhler, Alan Fletcher, and others.
A few weeks ago, friend and fellow designer, Paul Enderson, mentioned that the logosdesigners.com domain was for sale, so I bought it for $35. It’s not quite logodesigners.com (note the extra ‘s’ on ‘logos’ in the one I bought), but it’s relevant, has keywords that’ll help, and proved a lot cheaper than “logodesigners.” The idea was to set-up a hosting account, add content about the designers, include a link or two pointing towards www.davidairey.com and see if I can bring any visitors this way.
Using keywords within domain names helps a bit with search engine rankings, and for some time now I’ve planned on updating my best logo designers post. This seemed like a good time to take Paul’s tip and track the results.
On the site are short bios and resources for more than 35 of the world’s top identity creatives. I’ve not finished, so if you have any suggestions, do let me know.
