At the age of 8, I became a HUGE Abba fan. I saw them live in concert, and faithfully listened to every song on every album in chronological order, focussing on different details each time. Sometimes the vocals only, sometimes certain instruments. Each song detail was burned in my brain. It wasn’t until 1994 when I experienced another side of them with their first box set. It was the rare track called “Abba Undeleted,” a 23-minute medley of unreleased, incomplete and rough versions interspersed with studio chatter.
I woke up to exciting news that several of my logo designs have been selected for inclusion in the latest book from Counterprint, "Human Logo: Trademarks & Symbols"! It's quite an honor, as their design standards are high with plenty of international work up for review.
Human Logo is a collection of people-based logos categorised in sections such as bodies, hands, hearts, eyes and faces. The book contains over 300 logos from some of the world’s leading design companies such as; Wolff Olins, Pushpin Group, Hey, Chermayeff & Geismar, Berger & Föhr and many more.
Let me begin by apologizing for the long break in blog posts. My original intention was 1-2 articles each month, but new work took priority in the last while. Rest assured, I look forward to sharing some rewarding projects in detail as they’re launched: an L.A. client found via Instagram, a 176-year-old Ontario landmark in need of a fresh look, a passionate painter opening a vibrant show, and a sophisticated brand identity that goes back in time moving forward.
Welcome to NancyWuDesign.com 2.0! It's been a long time coming and I'm so glad you could join me. I hope to grow this blog with interesting things, sharing a variety of subjects related to my love of brilliant logos, typography, packaging, books and design (or some combination thereof), projects I'm involved in and maybe even a few surprises. Also a big shout-out to the expertise of web developer and teacher (I learned tons!), Catherine Winters over the past several months getting everything working smoothly.
As the new website goes through little tweaks and refinements, the 404 page needed some love and attention. I hope you'll never find this but just in case, here's what it looks like.
My personal logo has been selected for inclusion in the latest design book from Counterprint, "Monogram Logo: Monograms & Ciphers".
The book is a collection of categorized monograms and ciphers from around the world and contains 452 logos from some of the world's greatest design companies including Bruce Mau Design, Louise Fili, FITCH, BankerWessel, Stefan Kanchev and many more.
