When it comes to design, things don’t have to be complicated in order to be effective. Although, it can be tempting to over design and try to work in lots of detail, it’s not always the best way. This is especially true when it comes to logo design. Usually, the best are the ones that do more with less. Here is a collection of very inspiring logos that take this approach, and rely on cleverness rather than eye candy.

    Hello,
    Beautiful logos, thank you for sharing. I have started to create a website about wines and I need a logo, do you have something like this? Moreover, do you know where I could find some free web elements/vectors about wine? Any help will be appreciated.

    Great collection, thanks. We’ve always loved logos that use negative space, as many of your examples do.

    Hi John,

    You can find some great web-elements related to wine on http://www.creattor.com
    I just finished reviewing the site and I was surprised to see (pleasantly surprised, of course) to see that the site gives away only free assets and most of them look pretty good. You might want to search “wine” and see what the site offers you.

    I have come to realise that a simple design is really hard to create, it has to convey so much with less. Ah well I will stick with my complicated designs for now.

    The Motion one is a weird trick of the eye. Took me a minute to see the actual M symbol built around the flowing arrows. Very clever. Minimilistic but also deeply complicated at the same time in some cases.

    In my opinion, color combination is very important that has the most vital role in logo designing. As far as product or services is concerned, it should be as clear as Apple company logo. Having same name and nature of the company business also help to make the logo more simple because if company name and business nature are different then it would be difficult to design a unique one.
