It's been a while since Small Hat Studio published any news. Hey, we're all busy! But I received some super good juju in my inbox this morning. LogoLounge (the largest online repository of logo design) has included 13 logos created by Small Hat Studio for inclusion in the printing of their next book! Woo-hoo!

How crazy was the competition? For this book, there were over 10,000 logo submission from all over the world. All work was selected by jury of industry giants. So we're talking best of the best—like Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, but for graphic design.😂

But this really isn't about me. Or awards. There's no money in trophies or exposure. The real credit goes to my clients. Thank you for making Small Hat Studio a reality. You're the reason I come to work everyday. You're the reason I've found my calling. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

And now here are the winning logos. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did designing them!

Imagine The Possibilities | Barbie

As someone who believes that children (regardless of gender) can become whomever and achieve whatever they want, this new ad for Barbie is really, really refreshing. For far too long, the Barbie franchise has been stuck in the past when it comes to the modern role of women in society. For almost 60 years, Mattel chose to focus on Barbie's appearance, her love of shopping, lunching and luxury, material items like dream homes and pink sports cars. They ignored her brain, her dreams and ambitions and in the process limited the dreams, ambitions and possibilities of the girls for whom the doll was meant. This type of advertising is a step in the right direction to help make amends for the past. However, will it help the bottom line? Only time will tell.

Things have been busy here at Small Hat Studio. We just launched the new Katy Trail Dental website! It's the first large piece developed after designing the logo for the practice. Fun fact: the URL is actually ".dental" as opposed to ".com". Good dotcom addresses are so hard to find nowadays that we strategically decided to go in another direction for URL suffix. Check it out the full site at www.katytrail.dental.

Brand New: New Logo and Packaging for Topo Chico by Interbrand

This one is for all my CrossFit and health nut friends. Topo Chico -- everyone's favorite mineral water from Mexico -- just re-branded. This is a great examples of how a simple update can refresh a brand (no pun intended) without getting away from what makes it memorable. http://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_and_packaging_for_topo_chico_by_interbrand.php#.Vglco6ITNig

AT&T Archives: Saul Bass Pitch Video for Bell System Logo Redesign

If you’re not a designer (or lover of pop culture), you might not know the name Saul Bass. He was a supremely talented graphic designer working in the '60, ‘70s and ‘80s, and was best known for his design of corporate logos, film posters, and motion picture title sequences. Whether you realize it or not, you’ve seen his work. While too numerous to list all his accomplishments here, Bass is credited with designing the logos for Bell, AT&T, Continental Airlines, Warner Communications, Quaker Oats, Kleenex and the YMCA. I ran across the pitch video for the Bell System logo and found it fascinating. Even though this video is almost 40 years old, it is still relevant (and might be more relevant) to logo design today. Check out a few minutes of the video. I’ve advanced it to the good part at 9:50. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/xKu2de0yCJI?t=9m51s

So if you haven't heard, Google has updated it's logo. While the wordmark remains very simple, this marks the most radical typographic departure for the company as they shift from a serif typeface to a geometric sans serif. Check out this worthwhile video to see the evolution of Google's logo over the years. https://youtu.be/olFEpeMwgHk

Six things to keep in mind when designing a logo - iStock

Happy Friday, my little mad hatters! As I get started on a few new logo projects, I thought I would address a question that comes up quite frequently. What makes a good logo?

Here's link to a really good article that was published a few years ago. I keep it handy to show clients (and to remind myself) that a well-designed logo should always keep these six principles in mind. http://www.istockphoto.com/article_view.php?ID=721

Here's a set of considerations for any illustrators ready to plunge into Logos.

Why Exercising Is a Higher Priority Than My Business

Flexibility of schedule is one the greatest benefits of being self-employed. For me, this article speaks to the balance one must have between fitness and business. It's also why I try to hit the gym multiple times per week during normal work hours. http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/245224

We only have so many hours in the day, and if it's between a trail run or a client meeting, I'll reschedule the meeting. Here's why.

Strong, but not necessarily Safe: Stora Logo Work

One of the fun things about being a graphic designer is the opportunity to
learn about new segments of business you never knew existed. Creation of
the Stora Security logo was one such opportunity.
