Announcing Logospire

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working on a new project called Logospire. Logospire is a logo inspiration gallery. You can browse logos, upload your own logos, rate logos and leave comments and feedback.

While there are a few other logo galleries out there right now, I found that each one of them was lacking something. Most of the current galleries also moderate all logo submissions, so it may be a while before your logo actually goes live.

Logospire is different in that there is no moderation queue. You can upload your logo and it will go live straight away. By default, the front page sorts logos by highest rating, so even if there are low quality submissions, these won’t make it to the front pages. You can of course also sort by latest submissions, so you can browse, rate and comment on all the upcoming logos.

Instead of using pre-made gallery management software, I’ve built Logospire from scratch to ensure it fulfills its goals 100%. In the coming weeks I’ll be tweaking and updating the site, so if you have any suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Here’s what the site looks like:

So if you’re interested in logo design, go ahead and check out Logospire. I hope you like it.

“For even falsehood, uttered by the tongue of man, seemed like truth and light before this hopelessly-deaf and unresponsive silence.”

My new book: a translation of selected short stories by Leonid Andreyev, the father of Russian Expressionism from the Silver Age of Russian literature. A piercing, pitiless glance into the heart of the human condition.

Proust wrote that the true voyage of discovery is not to visit strange lands, but to possess other eyes, to behold a hundred universes that each of them beholds. Thus, in the words of Ruskin, what good books give us is not mere knowledge, but sight.
