A lot of things could be said about my favorite logo designer : Stefan Kanchev (1915-2001). The most important thing of all is that he was a great talent. Unfortunately, as many other great artists, he didn’t become world famous because he was working “behind” the Iron Curtain.
One of my university lecturers was a friend of his and a few years ago he revealed the beauty of his works to me . Naturally, I became a fan. Later, a few Bulgarian designers created the site StefanKanchev.com, where they unveiled a lot of his works for the wide public. His biography was also presented in both Bulgarian and English.
In 2009, during the Sofia Design Week event an unique vintage logo designs exhibition was held. The young designer Magdalina Stancheva did a research on Stefan Kanchev’s work and exhibited hundreds of his logo design sketches. Logoblink / Margarit Ralev photographed and ordered them for you! Better later than never. Hope you’ll appreciate and share this wonderful resource.
Don’t forget to check the StefanKanchev.eu project! Keep in mind that the website is in German.
