Seems like it’s been around forever. I stop by the website every once in a while, normally after clicking a link in an article, or clicking through from a logo in an image search. I think to myself, oh, this is good, I should add it to the site.
Then I go back to whatever I was doing.
So maybe 10 years after I first planned to, here’s a signpost to the logo archives on Graphis.com, where a record’s kept for the likes of these.
For my international readers, Our Price was a chain of record stores in the UK and Ireland.
Some previously featured Woody Pirtle logos.
Of course, it’s not just logos on show. Graphis has a respected award program for posters, annual reports, photography, advertising, and more. One of my favourite studios, Baxter & Bailey, just picked up this trophy for a series of posters.
That’s a nice trophy.
Side note, Baxter & Bailey’s Little Green Pig logo is one of those that makes me smile.
Graphis also publishes books and magazines on design, communication, and the arts, with a vast archive dating back to 1944 when it was founded in Switzerland by Walter Herdeg and Dr Walter Amstutz.
In 1986, the company was sold to B Martin Pedersen, and a few years later, the headquarters were relocated from Zürich to New York City.
Graphis. Worth another look.
