  5. Abhimanyu says

    Awesome compile!!! Though I had seen ones like Piano Forest before, I liked “Push the Bottle” and “DJ loop”

    Cheers!

  6. says

    Really these are stunning logos. Actually no shares such confidential logos but you shared such eye catching logos, it’s really good work. Keep sharing.

  7. David Magallon says

    Not sure if anyone’s said anything about the loop one, but it’s stolen from G4.

  8. says

    What a great feeling when a logo design really comes to together, that it just makes sense. Thanks for sharing!

  9. amit says

    Some really smart logos. I espically like those which communicate so much with such simple yet smart graphics like mill, horror films and piano forests.
    Kudos to the designers!!

  10. says

    Oh I love posts like this. There are so many great ones in here that I can’t even point out my favourite in this comment! I do love the simplicity and effectiveness of the Horror Films one though – that’s just genius!

    Hi! nice roundup of interesting logos. I don’t know if anyone mentioned this, but since I see you didn’t operate any correction, my guess is nobody noticed it : the name of the creator of number 8 is MUGUR not MUGAR… as seen even in his weblink. I would be grateful if you would operate that correction. Thanks.

  12. John Samuel says

    A nice collection. Lots of logos are worth mentioning. The logo “I Hate You” will really make you look twice

  13. Karl Foxley says

    Brilliant round up! My favs have to be Fold It and Shocked… they really stood out in my opinion.

  14. Gareth Coxon says

    Some great work here, most working from sound the basis of:
    • Simple
    • Smart
    • Memorable
    • Unique

  15. bams says

    thanks you for sharing and give explanatory about those logo…, you likes curator of logo…lol
    good job guys.

  16. Amber says

    Thanks for sharing and posting this fantastic compilation that really gets the mind thinking about smart logo design! I will have to think twice before I let All Stages Marketing settle on anything less than unique!

    Yours Socially,
    Amber

  17. Matty says

    Really cool logos. I especially like the shocked logo that made me smile and the guild of food writers plus piano forest. Excellent post.

  18. John Bloomfield says

    Some of these are great but a few I think have put design and technique above communication, you shouldn’t have to look as hard as you do at some of the logos to get the initial meaning hidden meaning is great but the initial meaning should hit you in the face.

    If you hadn’t told me that DJ loop was the name of the company it would have taken me too long to look at it and guess.

  19. beo says

    a logo needs to work in two colors. I agree some are interesting and work well. or at least start the design in two colors. the negative space on SOME of these are well done, however some are not and do not work. period. read some design books before posting “these logos rok yo!” terrible. the fold it is an interesting design, but it wouldn’t reproduce small well, you’d have to create a 2nd version. some are just illustrations, frogami… the haggar springs logo is probably the worst example up there… atrocious.

  20. says

    that’s a great collection of logos. It can be tough to create a good, meaningful design, but creativity is always a great way to go. I love when hidden messages are integrated. it makes it much more interesting.

  21. soshime says

    you’re kidding! you’ve got it backwards! tidy tom’ sucked and the i hate/love you logo worked great on so many psychological levels.

  22. Ryan says

    Really nice collection of logos (and I appreciate the fact that you linked to your sources). I will be revisiting for inspiration in the future.

    However, your writing could use a lot of improvement, Dainis. Having a friend proofread the article before you publish would be a good first step. I think if you could express yourself as powerfully as your content, this would be a great blog!

  23. says

    The best one among all these logos is “Texas association of stolen children”….it is amazingly creative and intelligent use of negative space. Rest of the logos did not amaze me much as I have been using them on ‘n’ off on my blog but have lately I stumbled across amazing negative space logos

  24. Pink Pig says

    The CSCN is clever- havent seen it before
    Shocked and Horror are bril as well- wish I’d designed them!

  25. Metacom says

    Man, these are awesome! I can’t even choose just one to point out. A lot of them have something to do with music, different types of creativity together is a nice thing to see. Thanks for the post

  26. Patrick Hill says

    It annoys me that the Uck logo actually makes me think of the exact opposite of what the company stands for. If I knew nothing about the company and saw this logo with a swastika and an f-bomb, I would definitely think it was for some kind of neo-nazi group. Seems like poor logo design to me.

  27. Nickunj says

    some Exceptional wrk’s and very refreshing ideas …………. :) . Was definately great. all the best too all who put an effort in logo’s and CHEERS !!!! ;)

  28. Steve Bellante says

    Very nice write-up on a interesting topic. I was happy to find this article today as it supplements my discussion last week about the importance of creating a meaningful logo.

  29. Daniel Duke says

    This collection is nice but your insights on the logos are terribly written, uninformative and in some cases, just wrong. I’m assuming English isn’t your first language so obviously allowances can be made for this. It still doesnt excuse the lack of actual critique though. It is a good collection though and very inspiring so good job.

  30. says

    Some of these are great, yes, but some of these aren’t great picks. I think this list should have only been about 20 logos long. Avid, DJ Loop, and more should probably have been left out.

  31. Steve says

    One of my all-time favorite logos is the first one that I noticed had this creative melding of ideas: The original logo for The Milwaukee Brewers. The baseball glove is made up of the letters M and B, with the baseball in the middle of the mitt where the hole in the B should be. I’d lived in Milwaukee when I was a kid and never noticed it until I was in my 20s and it just blew me away that someone had been that creative!

  32. says

    No matter how many times I see some of these, I still love ‘em.

    Fold It is one of my favs, reminds me of the F1 logo style.
    Shocked is great.
    …and Eight impressed me, simple but effective for capturing attention.

  33. says

    these are very creative, these seem like small brands, a good example of a big brand logo for the Big 10 conference.

  34. says

    lol….wow some of these are really creative. I love the ones that you can instantly tell exactly what the business does.

  35. Isabelle says

    Beautiful logos, wonderful artwork, self-explanatory — no need for explanations, especially when such explanations are laden with errors.

    • Greg says

      I was going to comment the exact same thing. The logo change when they went to 11 teams is one of that best I have ever seen.
