The Warehouse

The Logo Factory storage area. Whenever we create infographics and ebooks, we usually make them available for download from our blog. Trouble is, these posts have a way of disappearing into the recesses of our site and are sometimes difficult to find, or users may not notice they’re available at all. To that end, we’ve created this storage area for our free stuff – a warehouse – and a permanent location for our ebooks, infographics and Morgue Files.


A free digital magazine about logos and design. Examples, case studies, news, trivia and more. No subscription required, just come and get it. Logopalooza! 4 currently shipping. L5 available May 6.
