This gallery presents the collection of photos submitted for the World Of Signange Photo Contest1 by the readers of Smashing Magazine. We received over 2,500+ photos from our readers across the globe, and present a selection of the most interesting photos in the overview below.

The topic of this gallery is Corporate Logos and Brand signs. It includes several commonly recognized signs that creatively express the philosophy and aim of the businesses along with other more foreign and obscure ones. Please notice: each photo has a certain license, provided in the description of the photo. Before using the images for private or commercial projects, make sure that the license allows you to do so.
