15 Brilliant Conceptual Vector Designs for Developers
A few weeks ago, we showed you some very good logo design tutorials and techniques. Now it’s time for some logo design inspiration. Here are 30 very good examples of logo design that should help you come up with your own excellent logo ideas.
The Castle Print logo by Sean O’Grady creates a strong and immediate connection to the nature of the business it is designed for. By basing the graphic on theSubtractive Color Model the logo not only relates directly to the printing industry, but also creates a unique mark by reflecting the company name (‘Castle’) in the form of a castle icon shaped from the blending colors.
Bryan Kahrs use of negative space on the Ryan-Biggs logo gives a fantastic illusion of the letters B and R, initials of the targeted company while the slight angle adds depth and dimension to the design. All expressed in a single colour making the logo adaptable for a variety of uses and contexts.
The One Leaf logo by Choerte combines imagery directly generated from the business name into a single graphical mark. The numeric version of the word ‘One’ is used as a tree to accommodate the simple leaf graphic. Both relate directly to the business name, as well as to the type of business. The two are also combined perfectly giving a nice smooth flow.
The Greener logo by Tanner Christensen gives a modern impression with varying weights of sans-serif type, but also adds the impression of multiple layers without risking the logo’s ability to be reproduced in a single color (always an essential aspect of good logo design).
A fine logo design for talkmore uses symbology in the form of quotation marks to replace the letters A and E, creating a clever image that gives a graphical representation of the words and meaning of the brand. The touch of color enhances this effect making the logo stand out and adding to its attractiveness.
What first appears to be a simple design, the Black Sparrow logo from Alex Wende turns out to have some extremely high attention to detail. Everything from the bird icon to the type is tweaked with slight curves and flowing lines pulling together the complete design into a unique and effective branding statement.
The Swannie Lake logo from Savera+Co blends the modern sans-serif typeface Avenir with a sleek graphical image than not only fits perfectly with the logo but also adds a subtle touch to the design.
Using soft curves in the type and graphical device gives a friendly appearance to the Elara Systems logo by Maximalist. Bringing in the use of modern trends in the form of three dimensional effects to create a modeled letter E in the design fits perfectly with the animation and modeling studio this logo was created for.
Perfect type choices and a superb idea from Piotr Chrobot give a sophisticated image for the Onwine logo, pulling together graphical imagery and type to produce a unique mark that brilliantly conveys the topic of the brand.
Vlastmil Svoboda’s design for the Popp logo takes the idea of basing a design on type to the next level by creating the complete word from the single base shape. The letter O can be seen repeated on every letter, with small tweaks made to the letter P to differentiate and give legibility to the word.
The Therauz Fashions logo by Sandhya does a great job of combining type and a graphical image. Not only does the sewing needle refer to the concept of fashion, but plays a crucial part in illustrating the letters and holding together the logo. A perfect designer’s touch!
The Alatau logo design from Raja Sandhu gives a serious and cutting edge feeling with the widely spaced lettering and array of colored dots. The shapes are also balanced perfectly from the inner two letters, helping the two elements sit together nicely.
The graphical bird mark of the Spiffy Sparrow logo makes use of intricate shapes, lines and color that could easily progress onto other design material to create a stunning brand identity.
The use of negative space to produce the body of the bird is a particularly clever touch.
Heading away from the crisp lines and shapes usually associates with logo design, Good Creative’s design for the About Thyme brand has an excellent use of rough, hand-drawn elements, giving a friendly and approachable appearance. Each little icon gives an insight into the key features and values of what ‘About Thyme’ is actually all about!
Every part of the Ta Jevi logo oozes fun! The smiling face graphic itself highlights the entertaining aspect of the brand, but together with the arrows of the refresh icon the design symbolizes the deeper message of constantly updating fun. Combined with vibrant colors and a super-cool hand-written type the logo perfectly conveys the entertainment website’s values.
