LogoLounge Book 5 Surprise!

Today I was thumbing through e-mails on my Blackberry as I sat in the parking lot at my wife's work, waiting for her to get off work. To my surprise, I received an e-mail today from LogoLounge stating that one of the logos that I'd submitted had been selected to be published in their latest book.For those that don't know, LogoLounge is one of the premier logo related resources and publications and I'm distinctly honored to be included. The surprise in this announcement comes with the assumption on my part that the final judging had already been completed in early September, and the winners had already been contacted via e-mail. A pleasant and welcome surprise to be sure. My theories regarding a personal LogoLounge curse were quelled. ;-)

A little information regarding LogoLounge:

How do you get your work in an upcoming LogoLounge book?
It's simple: Become a LogoLounge member, and your work will be considered for a future book. Becoming a LogoLounge member also means you become a member of a larger community of designers who, like you, are vitally interested in logo design, its history and future. In addition, you receive the full functionality of the site, including enhanced search powers, a personal lightbox, and rating and commenting capabilities.

How do you select the firms you feature in the books?
The projects in the book are selected for their quality, timeliness, and relevance, and inspirational nature. We aim to form an effective mix of large and smaller firms, geographies, budgets, and client types.

Over 33,000 logos were entered for consideration and evaluated by an international panel of judges. This years panel included, Andreas Karl of Karl Design, Von Glitschka of Glitschka Studios, Michelle Sonderegger of Design Ranch, Sarah Moffat of Turner Duckworth, Jamie Koval of VSA Partners, Vince Frost of Frost Design, Bronwen Rautenbach of The Brand Union, and Alex de Janosi of Lippincott.

LogoLounge Volume 5 has a release date of June 2009.
