    A consistent branding label at the top with different illustrations beneath the consistent top part somehow equals a copyright violation? What am I missing here? Perhaps I'm missing the point.

    We're based in Manitoba and going into our fourth year, this is the existing redesign and I'm looking to rebrand it again. We actually aren't a church, but a ministry (as in, we might look for a new church...

    Not much going right here, sorry. Yes you need a hierarchy so the reader knows what to look at and in what order. Consider a background to tie it all together?

    Confused. Is this the existing logo or one you have redone?
    There are several Bread We Break churches, which is yours? Can you provide a link?

    Books! Those paper things that were around before the Google mindset ruined a generation of designers.

    I'm looking for excellent typography books. Currently I am finishing Bringhurst's "Elements of Typographic Style," and would like something to follow up with.

    I'm about to pick up the "Looking Closer" (1-4) series...

    Any other suggested reading? Not just for typography - but great books you've read in general. I'm not looking for annuals and simple case study showcase books - but rather critical writings on graphic design.

    I have access to OhioLink, a college resource that links like 100+ colleges in the state of Ohio through their libraries, so I can pretty much recieve any book. So - price is not an object.

    I recieved Jeff Fisher's book from some tiny school in northeastern Ohio! That was a great read for a student.

    Someone should move this to the resources forum "quick like a bunny" before I feel dumb =/

        1ST, I just picked up a book last night called "Graphic Design That Works" the cool thing i like about this is it's a case by case study of real world logos, brochures, magazines and layouts and why they work. And they are popular things that we all know, not garbage.

        I also recently picked up a book called "Advertising Concepts & Copy" it goes into more depth about what goes into making an ad than any book I've ever seen. Whether you make ads or not I think it's a valuable resource.
