24 Elegant and Colorful Logos

I’ve always found logo design to be one of the most challenging things to get right. There’s so much that a logo can say about a brand without actually saying it. The tone, style and overall fit and finish of a logo can reveal a lot about the feel of the brand too – from elegant, professional and refined brand identities to fun, colourful and quirky (and everything in between). It’s also possible to create logos that fit right in the middle, matching elegance and colour to create a feel that’s professional, but slightly playful.

I’ve collected some examples of my favourite logo designs that all pair colour with elegance. Some of these are bold and bright, while others make use of more muted colours, but each of them have been designed beautifully with real care and attention taken. There’s something quite fun and invigorating about a design that isn’t afraid to use a plethora of colours, and so I hope you find the collection inspiring and interesting too.

    Elegant and highly colorful collection, even though some of them use a strikingly similar palette.

    Cheers!

    Some nice designs here, but one purpose of a logo is to convey something about the business of the company it represents. I think most of these fail in that regard. Also, occasionally in print, a logo needs to work in black & white. Some of these would be hard to convert and still read.

    Nice collection, very colorful, but maybe hard to “transform” in black&white, or in different background color (ex: for print), what do you think ?

    Maybe some of theme are too “trendy” too “deja vu”. Not enought work on them to be unique! (ex protecto, logic spot, picton..)

    We also design logos, here in paris :

    Beautiful, attractive colours in these logos. They work really well online. My fave is Cucu.

    Printing some of them and getting the colours right, though, could be a nightmare.
