Vintage Logos Vintage is in. Today’s lifestyles are infused with vintage fashion, books, music instruments, furniture, toys and much more. But here we’re addicted to design, so let’s talk about vintage logos. This Flickr collection showcases logos from a mid-’70s edition of the book “World of Logotypes.” The collection will especially appeal to those seeking inspiration or interested in advertising relics of the past.

Highlights from a mid-seventies edition of The World of Logotypes. Eric Carl has graciously posted a large portion of his own copy of this out-of-print book on flickr. Chances are you’ve already seen some of the pages featured somewhere else but I wanted to extract in single form some of my favorite designs and feature them here on AQ-V in a multi-part series. I chose these marks based on their strong graphic quality which stands the test of time and is in no manner trendy.
