After bemoaning the quality of the new Amber Valley Logo yesterday, I took a look at neighboring council logo’s, to see what they are offering.
So here is my tour of Derbyshire via the medium of council logo’s starting in the south…
For me it’s starting on a high, South Derbyshire District Council stick with a traditional coat of arms with a couple of big cats as supporters.
I like: As coats of arms go, it quite simple and the green is great
I don’t: It’s pretty tricky to scale down
Derby City Council
Derby has a very abstract logo. It’s one I like, quite a lot, I think it’s a stag and ram, which has been smartly taken from the coat of arms.
I like: The abstract logo
I don’t: The colours grate and the type doesn’t seem part of the whole
…A number of my posts have found themselves a new home on my new logo blog logocurio.us. This one can be found in full on the Derbyshire Council Logo Tour post on logocurio.us, read this article in full over there!

The work that you carried out for me was absolutely what I was looking for. From concept to completion and in particular what struck me the most was the fact that nothing was to much trouble to make sure I was happy with the end product which has certainly given my business the professional edge.

On a 600gsm stock my business cards are fabulous, really sturdy and thick, they also have a great feel to the finish. They also feature some of my fave projects to make a pocket portfolio!
When the ReST vulnerability hit the news, I was happy that my hosted websites were already safe.
At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive. At first, I found this an odd query, although perfectly valid, my assumption was alway that I’d supply every file they’d need, why would I design a logo and do anything less?
