Beautiful And Creative Logo Designs For Your Inspiration

Advertisement

Last week we already presented our first selection of beautiful, clever and creative logo designs1. This post presents the second part of our selection, featuring even more beautiful and creative logos that will hopefully inspire you or at least give you the idea of what the current logo design trends look like.

Just as last time, we focused on logos that use creative methods to represent the brand through color, shapes, and typography. Every design presented below tells you something about the company that it is supposed to represent. Also note the brilliant color palletes and unique patterns used in many of these. Finally, pay attention to the typography, especially font selection and coloring.

Below you’ll find a collection of 40 more beautiful and creative logo designs to inspire you. Browsing through the showcase, you will notice many trends. Some of these include the usage of simple shapes to create something complex, origami shapes, coloring and transparency trends, and many more. You may want to take a look at the post Logo Design Trends 2009442 for further reference.

    The “Horrorfilms” logo does everything right, except for the typography, which could have benefitted from using a bolder version of the typeface.

    A logo is not supposed to include everything including your mum, it is supposed to be simple, clean, easily reproducable, recognisable and adaptible to any size/background/setting-variations you can get. I would call many of these emblems rather than logos due to their level of detail.

    Very nice. But I just downloaded a package with 2000 free label logos ready to be used as they are.
    Saves me the effort! Optimize your time, prioritize your tasks.
    First priority is making money not building a logo so you can build a site so you can drive traffic so you can test affiliates so you can make money.
    It might take a while to get into the right optic, I know.

    Great logos, what about making a selection of the most boring ones? My vote for facebook, twitter, skype…

    @verli Why would a designer want a free WordPress theme? Surely those are for people who can’t design.

    to #106 (pete) do you get each item of your clothing handmade? Why would you buy clothes from the store…must be for people who don’t know how to sew.

    Some of us don’t have time to design a site.

    The content of a site always, always, always dictates the traffic it receives.

    Most of these logos look like the $35 crap you get these days.

    A couple really stand out like the cleverness of the horror film logo and the colours of subatomic, but the others are certainly not worth mentioning. The ‘a’ logo for Alight is just painful on the eye – how that got past quality control I have no idea – terrible mix of colours and contrasts.

    Mark, no I don’t make my own clothes; I’m not in the business of making and selling clothes. I wouldn’t walk into a shop, buy a T-shirt and call myself a Tailor either.

    If you ‘don’t have time to design a site’, don’t call yourself a ‘Designer’. My point was: Why would a ‘Designer’ want a free WordPress theme? That would just make them a reseller of free products, a rip-off merchant. It gives a bad name to the rest of us.

    @richtaur : “Really? You think shleep is creative? Looks really lazy to me.”

    Glad you said that. The logo is suppose to look “lazy”. After all, the name is shleep…a combination of the word sheep and sleep. :-D

    Hey thanks for putting our logo on here!

    I see two chaps – Allen and Joey have had a pop at it – Oh well…You can’t please everyone!

    In our defence we rarely showcase our brand without the word Alight underneath it, we (almost) always use the logotype with the typography – in fact if you click on the logo above you do see the whole thing!

    Either way we are very happy to see our brand turn up on this prestigious site

    Ta!

    Very Creative and Inspirational. Few of the logos, I think, will not fit well in white Backgrounds. like the Swing logo, the Background makes it amazing. All the logos have excellent color combination. Very Professional logos. Thanks for sharing. :)

    I can’t believe no one recognized Herb Lublin’s Families logo. It was designed in 1980. Funny, how the article said, “This post presents the second part of our selection, featuring even more beautiful and creative logos that will hopefully inspire you or at least give you the idea of what the current logo design trends look like.”
