I’ve launched a little website to feature some of the world’s most iconic logo designers. Including are the likes of Herb Lubalin, Steff Geissbuhler, and Alan Fletcher. You might wonder why I’m using a new site rather than simply publishing the details here, or on Logo Design Love, so I’ll tell you a very short story.
A few weeks ago, friend and fellow designer, Paul Enderson, told me that logosdesigners.com 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.com. 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 you’ll find short bios and resources for more than 35 of the world’s most outstanding creatives. I’ve not finished, so if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment.
