    The key to getting an amazing typography based logo is to hire someone who specializes in typography 1st, graphic design 2nd.

    Wow, some very creative examples here. Unfortunately, a more than a few are very hard to read, even one or 2 that I still am unsure of.

    Good inspiration for how to work with typography, but definitely legibility needs to be key to a typographic logo.

    Interesting ideas, but the proble with most is that they are difficult to read. Rule number one, people should look at the logo and know exactly what company it is for. If you have or want to do something nifty with the type, create one that is easier to read with some type of graphic and a more standard text. Then shop it around to like minded peole and your grandmother. If it passes, it will work for most.

    It is a very good collection of typography based logo designs.

    I sometimes get asked about wheter to include an icon or typographic elements in a logo design. My answer is that typography always needs to be there, as nearly understood the same way all over the world, and it is the best way to make your brand memorable.

    So typographic design is an essential part of logo and brand design.

    Nevertheless, if your typographic approach is hard to read, I suggest including your brand name in a more standard, but extremely clean – and easy to read – way, as an additional tag-line. That way, people will remember your full name in a blink, while keeping your image distinctive and eye catching.

    Expression without illustration is hard to design. Choosing typeface/ fonts for the logo is a tough job. with the right balance of colors and fonts one can create legendary logo designs
    Some good examples are ’3m’, Microsoft, and ‘LG’ logos

    Some of them deserves a medal, others are hard to read and only a few will see the whole thinking behind these logos and “read” them.

    Some are very good but some are way too complicated and difficult to read. If you look at the biggest companies in the world, their typographic logos are very simple and easy to read, Google, Facebook, Sony, Philips, etc. Less is definitely more.

    Very Cool, inspirational and very creative applications. Some though are difficult to read, and the charm logo is straight, not much thought put into that.
