The work of nine local marketing and design companies will be featured in the eighth installment of Logo Lounge, a series of books meant to serve as a resource for logo design.

Logo Lounge launched in 2006 and is the brainchild of local graphic designer Bill Gardner. The book will feature 2,000 logos from designers from around the world. Of those, 106 are from Wichita-area businesses.

The book is due out next spring.

Hard copies sell at Amazon.com for $35 and in bookstores for $50. Online Logo Lounge memberships, which give access the logos and customizable searches, are $100 a year.

The local businesses being featured are:


• Doubleacreative.

• Entermotion Design Studio Inc.

Gardner Design.

Greteman Group.

• Howerton & White.

• Justin McClure Creative.

• Luke Bott Design & Illustration.

Squid Ink Creative.

The work of these companies was chosen from 35,000 logos that were submitted from designers from around the world.

One of the logos being featured is popping up across Wichita this week: Squid Ink’s logo for the Air Capital Classic golf tournament, which kicks off Thursday.

The tournament, which was rebranded this year, used to be called the Wichita Open.
