Creative Madhouse Designs Go Global in LOGO 2004

Creative Madhouse is thrilled to announce that 14 of its logo designs have been selected for inclusion in the latest publication by logo mogul David E. Carter. The ceaselessly creative minds of the Madhouse are tickled pink about this latest honor, which comes on the heels of the selection of nine Creative Madhouse designs for LogoLounge Volume II.

David E. Carter has published over 100 books on design since 1972 and is a widely-acknowledged master in the field. He started the LOGO competition in 2000, selecting 2,500 logos from a field of 11,000 entries; the published collection was retitled The Big Book of Logos and sold more than 20,000 copies worldwide. Now in its fourth year, the LOGO competition gives international exposure to the design firms whose logos are selected for publication in the latest Big Book. The collections have become indispensable references and sources of inspiration for designers around the world.
