Designers excelled in using shadows, contrast and transparency to represent the brand they are working on.

  3. DavidMoreen on September 23rd, 2009 at 4:55 pm

    These are some great logos, I wish my creativity could come out when I make logos. Looking at some of them, their amazingly simple but I wouldn’t think of making them… ;)

  4. Ruby on September 23rd, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    Awesome logos!! Haven seen any of them before, it’s impressive!

  5. starr on September 23rd, 2009 at 6:07 pm

  6. Ram on September 23rd, 2009 at 6:30 pm

  7. Xtence on September 23rd, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    this is how logo’s should be

  8. Rob H on September 23rd, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    Nice collection, simple clean and effective designs.

  9. leah sherer on September 23rd, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    Really nice clean work, meaningful and clearly relates to the product. Don’t see this often,so wanted you to know we think all of these are great!

  10. Jeremy Davis on September 23rd, 2009 at 8:27 pm

    Loving the use of negative space in Ed’s Electronic’s logo.
    Great collection.

  11. Brandon Cox on September 23rd, 2009 at 9:19 pm

    Whoever Ed is, his electric company is bound to be doing good business – I’ve seen his logo all over the world wide web!

  12. Zelvac ©© on September 23rd, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    Beautiful, thanks.

  13. Ian Salsman on September 23rd, 2009 at 9:33 pm

    I agree with several others who indicate a nice compilation. Clean and simple, each one communicating an individual thought. … and it is a comilation that inspires me with fresh ideas. Thanks for posting.

  14. Sarah Hudson on September 23rd, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    Some really clever and actually witty stuff in there, I love it! Especially love Ed’s electric- so simple and strong… great solution.

    Thanks for the post.

  15. Chris Morata on September 23rd, 2009 at 10:06 pm

    I wish my logo made it… :-P

  16. Jesse on September 23rd, 2009 at 11:48 pm

    This is good stuff. I like the Pangur one. It’s so simple and colorful.

  17. Scott on September 24th, 2009 at 12:38 am

    There’s some really nice logos here, but a lot of them are just literal illustrations of the company name. That’s not creative, let alone breathtaking.

    • LIGHTNING on September 24th, 2009 at 4:42 pm

      I have to agree with scott here.

  18. BebopDesigner on September 24th, 2009 at 2:03 am

    Brilliant collection! Love Ed’s Electric, Code Fish and Dream Marketing. But they’re all really inspiring.

    Thanks for posting

  19. stephanie on September 24th, 2009 at 3:08 am

    I really love many of these logos and am in need of a great logo for my business, thanks for posting. Now I have ideas where to go!

  20. Randy on September 24th, 2009 at 3:13 am

    Great list! I wish I was this good. The hardest part to me is when there is nothing “physical” to tie the logo to. Whether that is an animal, box, scissors or whatever!

  21. Phelan Riessen on September 24th, 2009 at 3:22 am

    Always nice to have inspirational posts like these to get the creative juices flowing. Thanks for posting.

  22. Redstage Magento on September 24th, 2009 at 4:04 am

    These are great! Nice and amazing. I’m inspired already. Thanks for this.

  23. qiqia on September 24th, 2009 at 10:43 am

    niiiiiiiiiiiiice

  24. webmasterdubai on September 24th, 2009 at 11:05 am

    nice inspiration logos some are really nice good ideas.

  25. Prowl on September 24th, 2009 at 11:17 am

    Awesome logos!! Haven seen any of them before, it’s impressive!

  26. Kayla on September 24th, 2009 at 12:36 pm

    This are very clever logos, I haven’t seen most of them before. Great showcase, thanks much!

  27. sean on September 24th, 2009 at 12:44 pm

    I agree with Scott, majority of them are just literal illustrations of company names, and made up companies at that, see how many of them you can find online. Get an idea for an illustration then make up a company to suit

  28. Tb on September 24th, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    many of them are great, but some of the as said before are just representations of fake companies. THe difficult thing is to find a logo that portrais an existing company activitiy.

    And about the Ed logo, browse for studio-bortolotti, a design studio that in the 70´s came up with this idea.

  29. Sneh Roy on September 24th, 2009 at 6:06 pm

    Lovely list! Thanks for including my Gel’s Kitchen Logo :)

  30. Sarah Lynn on September 24th, 2009 at 6:44 pm

    Great collection! Love the perro and longneck logos. Very creative and playful.

  31. aymen87 on September 24th, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    Really Greaaat :)

  32. Web 2.0 on September 24th, 2009 at 7:03 pm

  41. Reglan Side Effects Lawsuit on September 26th, 2009 at 12:56 am

    Great logos. I love the Samurye pun.

  42. Justin on September 26th, 2009 at 1:24 am

    Seen half of these on Smashing Magazine. You guys are late to the party. SCISORSS and CodeFish are pretty hot though.

  43. greg myers on September 26th, 2009 at 5:19 am

    haha…you actually counted them? even after reading your comment, I’m still not going to go back and count them!

  44. Ahmed on September 27th, 2009 at 8:39 am

  46. PhilippineOutsourcing on September 28th, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    cool work! thanks for sharing

  47. robb on September 28th, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    others are great, but i find logotip and ed’s electric are the best ones.

  48. M A Dhavan on September 29th, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    The logo of swing studios is very good.

  49. wien on September 29th, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    nice logos, thanks

  50. Mark Carter on October 1st, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    I was really struck by how complex many of these logos were. Not sure how many of them are driven by KISS? Nevertheless, many thanks for sharing these ….

  51. Alyssa on October 3rd, 2009 at 2:03 am

    I’m constantly trying to achieve something as striking as these logos- they’re beautiful!

    • Reno on October 4th, 2009 at 5:16 pm

      Great collection! I really like the Logomotive logo…

  52. Shane on October 5th, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    I love all of these logos, great collection.
    Thanks for sharing.

  53. nicole on October 5th, 2009 at 10:24 pm

    these are the most amazing logo’s i have ever seen, i love the umbrella and the foot one. =D

  54. esa on October 7th, 2009 at 2:52 pm

    The word breathtaking…. is pretty exaggerated. Relax

    • Brent on October 8th, 2009 at 1:47 am

      Are you kidding…these logos literally took my breath away. I had to go to the hospital after viewing these enamoringly heartfelt, amazingly astounding, jaw-dropping, and any other overused term to try to get visits to your list that we’ve already seen a thousand times on a million different logo galleries, logos. Whew. Simply breathtaking.

  55. Luke on October 15th, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Some lovely logos there. I really like the ‘swing studios’ and ‘families logotypes, impossible to pick a fave though as they’re all good.

  56. shallow dish on October 25th, 2009 at 1:12 am

    Your company is called Foot, so we’ve made a kind of footprint fashioned out of the O’s.

    Ah. And why have you done that?

    Well, it’s witty and playful.

    We’re undertakers.

    Or–or distinctive, and um, memorable.

    This looks like it says ‘Fiot’. Or is it ‘Fist’, a bit smudged?

    No, no, they’re O’s, in–in the shape of a foot. I mean, a shoe, a stylized shoe. Print. A print of a shoe, filled in. Look, it’s to give the idea of a foot, you see, because that’s your name.

    So this does in fact say ‘Foot’?

    That’s right.

    Not Fiot.

    It’s perfectly clear when people know your company is called Foot.

    When it’s written normally.

    Right.

    Not the way it’s written in your logo.

    Er, yes.

    I see. So it says Foot, and the O’s are a shoeprint. Now, what would the F and T represent?

    They’re just an F and a T.

    Good, because I thought they were meant to be toes or something. In a stylized sandal, perhaps.

    Actually, we did think about- Oh, I just got that. Ha-ha, yes, sandal. Awfully good.

    Well, thank you for your time on this…

    They really liked it on the Noupe design website, you know.

    Indeed. You’ll see yourself out?

    • J.T. Shaver on November 25th, 2009 at 8:58 am

      Haha! Finally, someone who understands a real logo. These are 90% fake logos made by people for their Logopond portfolios. They aren’t creative because the idea came before anything else, and wasn’t thought of after any kind of brief. Anybody can do that.

      I’ll make a logo for a company called Horseshoe and make a silhouette of a boot with a horses mane on the back. Or a logo for Monkey Box that’s a box with a monkey tail hanging from a tree! See…

  57. klodianadesign.com on November 10th, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    beautiful logos, great inspirations :)

  58. Adrian on March 12th, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Some great logos here, thanks for putting the effort in to compiling the list. I feel logopond rules in terms of logo inspiration.

    Cheers Adrian.

  59. liu jie on March 31st, 2010 at 5:39 am

    very good

  60. Ardelle Belsito on October 13th, 2010 at 1:08 am

    There is so many vary type of opinions on design and style that it is out of the question to please most people regrettably…

  61. ketty james on December 12th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    Thought I would comment and say cool theme, did you design it on your own? It looks really good!

  62. SJL on June 20th, 2012 at 11:02 am

    Thanks for putting together this great source of inspiration
