70,000+ logos

This one’s for the graphic designers and trademark aficionados out there.

My friend Dave Hall from The Gentleman Loser (a very small mailing list for a circle of tech-savvy friends, named by my suggestion after the “console cowboy” bar from William Gibson’s “Sprawl” series; Gibson in turn got the name from the chorus of Steely Dan’s Midnite Cruiser) informs me of the existence of Logotype Free, a russian site containing over 70,000 corporate logos in Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW! formats.

Dave says that Logotype Free “does for logos what did for movies”. I suspect that a number of legal departments of companies whose logos appear there might disagree.
