Inspiration plays a key role in the growth of a designer. If you live in a vacuum without seeing what other designers are doing, it’s very difficult to improve and grow your skills. That’s why we think it’s important to find excellent examples of design and share them with you. As you know, every Monday we showcase inspiring web designs, but we also mix in other types of design. For this post we are focusing on logos. So here are 30 Fresh and Inspiring Logo Designs. Enjoy!

    Logos are so important; they brand you, your website and your business in a unique and distinctive way. And I think there are some amazing designs in this collection.

    All except “Rockeron?” deserves to be on that list. I really think Rockerons’ readability is a bit off. I’m not even sure it says rockeron.

    Agree that there are lots of amazing examples in here, but how many are actually used by real companies? I always seem to ask this question whenever i see a logo showcase on a blog, i just think it would be nice to see some exmaples of logo’s that are being used by real companies.

      I agree with Ben. I’m always more impressed by logos used for actual companies than logos created for Brandstack. The challenge of creating a logo for a real company is a lot different than making a logo for something like “Playbee”. I feel like they make the graphic part of the logo and then come up with the name, when in the real design world it works just the opposite most of the time.

      @ Ben: A LOT of companies out there do actually use logos like this. You’d be surprised ;-)

      The key theme to making a logo (that actually) works in my opinion… is to keep it SIMPLE in the design.

      A logo doesn’t need to have a bunch of graphics and colors to it… it just needs to convey the point.

        Another key element in making a logo should (in my opinion) be to make it stand out enough to be recognizable.

        In my opinion Speedynotes, Macho Grill, Camel, Soverinn and Birdlaunch does that best in this collection.

    Great logos. Some of them have very nice use of negative space.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Great round up of logos!

    Look forward to the next go ’round.

    I think the important part isn’t so much that they’re “real company logos” as it is that they inspire you to create.

    @Daniel: right on the money. You have to keep it simple; the KISS principle: “Keep it Simple, Stupid.”
    I love some of these logos. Thanks for posting.

    That PagePro logo is just a ripoff of the Prisma Graphics logo. People who plagiarize other people’s work should not be recognized as anything other than thieves.

    See the original Prisma Graphics logo yourself:

      logo prismagraphic is a recycled idea.

    I love most of these logos, the elephant mojito one is my favorite. I also wonder if any of these are actually in use?

    I’m loving it! I’d say about 90% of websites that are created out there… should use a simple & clean design layout.
