Logo design is its own form of art. Designers must integrate branded colors, shapes, and even words into a logo all the while balancing minimalist designs that can be use on the web or on billboards. It’s certainly a challenge.

This collection of logos represent a fresh batch of up and coming designers who have come up with some noteworthy concepts. Whether it’s a simple stroke of a pen, a full-color design, or the creative merging of a visual concept — the following designs are sure to be an inspiration to anyone taking notice.

    I don’t find them inspirational at all… none of them

    • Oliver

      Second that.

      No, they’re all pretty basic and some downright ugly. Sure, taste varies but this wasn’t even close.

      Thirded… bland logos

      Sorry, all! Looks like I fell short of the mark in this one.

    I really like the linch pin logo, very clever.

    • http://creativecontentexperts.com/ Tara Hornor

      I agree!

  • aldrin james

    Those designs are just so fascinating. I like all the designs because everyone is unique. In looking at those designs I get more inspired to keep on doing my best to be a good web designer.

    Many of these designs are dated, and not very inspirational at all. Not impressed.

      Sorry about this. Okay, now I’m inspired to write a better logo roundup! :)

    A great design shows a great skill of creativity of designer, i really love by these logos. A good inspiration for me to boost my skills. Thanks

    Synthesis – like the graphic. Text was ugly
    Linchpin – cute. Don’t “get it” with the colouring.
    Where Jew At – interesting! Pretty bold but I guess with a name like that you’d expect it to be
    Printing Bar – sorry, really don’t like it
    Heartfelt Music – at first I didn’t like it, but then I noticed the overlay of the shapes. Cute!
    AI – overlaid typography doesn’t really work here


    • http://creativecontentexperts.com/ Tara Hornor

      Yes, I love the typography and the colors in 45.

    A short analysis what makes each Logo stand out or why it was selected for this overview, would not have hurt, imho.

    • http://creativecontentexperts.com/ Tara Hornor

      Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll try to do this more often. :)

    A logo is suppose to be designed so that it identify that company without the use of wording.  Two such examples are Apple and Dell.  Their logos say it all, which very few on this page do!!  Close by no cigar! 

    • http://creativecontentexperts.com/ Tara Hornor

      Apple and Dell certainly do have their logos refined. :)

  • Marco

    I’ve noted some of them on bandsoftheworld. I must say that I remembered only Heartfelt Music, Synthesis and Hedgie Innovative Solutions. Hedgie’s logo is a bit too rough and… too “spiky”. It could be improved but generally I love the design. I also love their iPad wall fixings, but that’s another story.

  • Justin Meyers

    Sorry… These are some of the worst logos I’ve ever seen. It’s like a bunch of nerdy developers picked these out :)

    • http://creativecontentexperts.com/ Tara Hornor

      Argh! I will come up with a much better roundup next time. :)

    I think the Atomic Love is my favourite here. Other than that there aren’t too many inspiring ones.

    • http://creativecontentexperts.com/ Tara Hornor

      I like Atomic Love too. Sorry the rest were uninspiring. :(
