    I find it interesting that many of these logos’ appeal seems to come from the color background they’re sitting on, especially the ones with the gradient. If these logos were placed black on white I doubt they’d look nearly as brilliant, but nonetheless all of the examples here are still very well done.

      That was a spot on observation. The gradient background does heaps in accentuating the visual flavour fo the logo. Having said that however, some of them are pretty clever.

    I really like the “Illusion” logo. That one is a great typography only logo that does its job!

    I think ‘wave’ is an incredibly smart and has some kind of ‘wavy’ font shapes to complete the look. It sticks to the viewer’s memory ;)
    Thanks for this logo round up post!

    I just updated our logo this week in preparation for a site make-over. Nothing too fancy, but it definitely falls into this category.

    I may get railroaded for saying this…

    I’m just about to wrap up a design on 99Designs.com. This place has a love hate relationship in the design world, I know.

    Funny thing is that this contest has actually been a joke.

    Are there any similar sources that are more professional than a 99Designs type of thing?

    The canned response would be finding a talented designer to go with, but I like the competition aspect of it.

    Thanks for your response.

    Logo design depicts the theme of the company, while creating logo, a designer should convey the message of the company through its logo design

    Yes I agree with you. Logos don’t always have to have a symbol to be effective. The logo designs you posted are very well done. Simple yet catchy. Logos that have impact and easy to remember.

    Excellent collection. I have an interesting observation though: most of these logos seem to contain a single word, as opposed to multiple words or a phrase. I guess brands/identities with single words tend to pack more “punch” in certain contexts.

    After 15 years of designing logos I still find it hard to do ‘Type only’ logos. I just can’t help but to add a symbol :). Is anyone else like that?

    These are very high quality text logo designs. All of the logos are really cool and are having different design patterns.

    Logo is an an identifying mark that conveys corporate identities and ownership. It should be simple and yet striking in one look. Thanks for sharing this. I like the Locks and Indulge.
