Some of the Most Interesting Logo Designs Around Today
One of the most important elements of branding and marketing for any company is their logo design. Whether it is a worldwide conglomerate worth billions of dollars or a home based business that you are starting, the logo creates an identity that establishes its worth in the market.
Some of the Most Interesting Logos Around Today:
The most interesting and creative logos don’t necessarily have to belong to a leading corporation or come out of the world’s most expensive ad agency’s studios. Thanks to the increasing availability of logo design tools on computers, and widely available internet access throughout the world, a plethora of creative designs keeps rolling out online every single day. Online competitions for logos are also held where people share their image and interpretation for what a brand’s existing or new logo should look like. Let’s take a look at some of the most creative logo designs around today:
Lion Bird: A Double Entendre:
We have all seen examples of logo design that convey more than one meaning within the same limited space. Lion Bird is one such logo that forms two images simultaneously: the foreground is a dark shaded bird with its wings spread. Take a look at the background, and the bird becomes the lion’s eyes, nose, and face while the rest of the images fades perfectly to complete the entire head of a lion.
Spartan Golf Club: Getting More from Negative Space:
This logo design is one of the few examples of clever use of negative space out there. With a light colored background, this logo relies on a pure black logo that dictates elegance and power.
Design Tent: The Vertical Pencil:
Another contender for the double entendre category, this logo design uses a simple abstract shape of a tent. The twist lies in the unique coloring of the tent, which gives it the appearance of an upright pencil.
Artistic: The Upside Down Pencil:
A symbol of free thinking and creativity, the pencil conveys a sense of unconstrained expression and perfectly represents all types of design work. This logo turns a parachute shape into an upside down pencil through the clever use of color and shading.
Giraffe: Starting with a ‘g’:
This logo design incorporates the clever use of the small case letter “g” to form the face of a giraffe. Complete with horns and ears to the side, it creates a distinctly recognizable logo.
The Bird’s a Word:
Have you heard about the bird? Has Peter told you about the bird? While you look that up, this is a clever example of using a shape as a letter. The logo utilizes the silhouette of a bird flying away as the letter B, followed by the remaining three letters of the logo.
Minimum: A Minimalist Approach that Stands Out:
An example of nice, clean design, this logo relies on a uniquely shaped text and a shade of red that pops. Recognizable from a good distance, and distinct enough not to be mixed up with similar logos, this is one that truly stands out.
CodeFish: Bringing Out the Code:
This logo design relies on a clever use of characters including brackets and an asterisk to form the shape of a fish. This is a really fitting logo as it relies upon characters that are used in coding and conveys a subtle hint at the ingenuity and creativity of the team – both essential for success in software development and coding.
A Maze for Amazing:
Now this is a great example of a play on words used to the maximum advantage. By incorporating a real maze in the middle of the word, “Amazing”, this logo scores on all the right criteria. It is simple and neat, uses a uniform two color shade, and adds a visually attractive element of creativity.
This logo also uses a similar play on words technique for its design. One unique thing about this logo is that it manages to spell out the name “Cahoots” and adds a graphic logo without distorting the word or the shape of two persons too much. This may be one of the few logos out there that successfully incorporates both letters and shapes with ingenious clarity.
This logo design counts on a cleverly placed shape to go along with the name. The shape took quite a bit of thinking to come up with from what it seems. Showing two matches together with flames lit conveys a secondary meaning to the logo that would be otherwise unexplained.
Simple and representative of the new minimalist trends sweeping the web, the Uptown logo relies on using abstract shapes. It shows 5 arrows pointing upwards that can just as well be seen as houses. Another unique feature of this logo is the shading on the shape which gets lighter with height.
Relying on one of the nuances of typing, this logo uses the misspelled word “bckspace” followed by a writing prompt. The logo uses a light shade on a dark brown background for a clean, modern look that remains aesthetically appealing.
Another logo design that stands out for integrating a shape with letters is the LOOK logo. Perhaps ‘O’s are the easiest letter around to replace with a shape, and the designer for this logo has sure taken advantage of that. The logo incorporates two large ‘O’s that can double as eyes. This is achieved through the clever reverse coloring effect given to the logo by using white font against an all black background.
Chair Sit Logo:
Furniture design requires a good deal of creativity. We can say for sure that if the furniture makers behind this company are as talented as the logo designer, we would be their most loyal customers. The logo is based around a chair facing the viewer. The back of the chair is cleverly used to incorporate the word “SIT” and is only evident when you look closer for a second glance.
