    Clever and apt logos. brilliant examples!

  • Eli

    Most of these logos are quite clever and beautiful, but I’m not sure about the use of the word “brilliant” here to describe them.

  • http://www.eagleimagery.co.uk/ Mark Ballantyne – Logo Designer

    Are the logos working for their respective clients?

    Great collection! The getwired logo looks great! Anyone know which font is used in it? I really liked the tony’s organic food logo too.

    I guess not – http://www.smorss.com no longer exists…

    Much harder information to get hold of, but would be much more valuable than just the ones the editor of WDL likes..

  • http://www.cursodedropshipping.net/ Dropshipping

    wow,….these logos are really inspiring.

    I already gave this link to my Graphic designer so he can get inspired too :)

    Amazing post as always.

    cheers!

    While these logo’s are good for their time (right now), they are–for the most part–too stylized to support any kind of longevity. If any of these companies intend on being around for more than 5 years, a lot of will find themselves with a dated logo (people will be able to guess the year it was created based on stylistic trends).

  • Matt

    Have to agree with the ‘Brilliant?’ and ‘Scaled Down’ comments here. A lot of these logos are very stylized and clever enough for web sites that require little or no print branding, but very few really carry the necessary aspects of a truly great logo. Scalability, Symbolism, Simplicity, and Style. Just realized I kind of invented some sort of 4 S rule there… Anyway, these logos just fit a kind of style and act as an illustration for a website, where really the quality of the service provided creates the brand, allowing the logos to be in a more painterly fashion. Used as a style element rather than a mark to easily identify the company in many different sizes and mediums. These are all ‘pretty’, and well done in that regard.

    very nice logos. thanks for inspiration.

  • http://www.pharfetched.co.uk kit

    A nice selection from LogoPond guys, all good but I have to wonder how some might look when scaled down.

  • http://www.desenvolveweb.com.br Desenvolve Web

    Amazing. I love the ecofood logo.

  • http://www.ashleybaileydesigns.com Web Designer Greensboro

    I really like a lot of these….particularly firestarter, lemon stand, and happy quote. :)

  • http://www.dzinepress.com Dzinepress

    really creative logos and i really like there all list.

  • http://www.dietmarhartje.de Dietmar

    The list’s including some nice logos but I think creating a stunning logo is more, or better, different from some of the above shown. A really good logo must be simple and timeless…

  • http://www.sarahlynndesign.com Sarah Lynn

    The Get Wired logo is very clever! Great collection here, very inspiring.

  • http://www.sjlwebdesign.co.uk Sam Logan

    Amazing set of logos for inspiration, thanks for sharing them.

  • http://blog.yellowdoggdesigns.com Mark

    Good picks. I like this set of logos. A lot of them have a good blend of graphic and typography.

  • http://www.scriptingok.com HTML Teacher

    Clean designs, great inspiration!!!

  • http://www.adventcreative.com Adam

    Lots of emphasis on simplicity. I like it!

    Im not convinced… make all these grayscale and scale them down to 1″x1″ and you will start to get a feel for which logos are effectively designed. I agree, as is they are all pretty… but “brilliant” design is far from just looking pretty

  • http://www.brandsimplicity.com.au Fabian

    Great collection! I always enjoy seeing good design:)

  • http://www.georgewiscombe.com George Wiscombe

    Some really nice designs, Moon Balloon & RazorRSS are probably my favorites, beautiful and clever – always a good combo!

    Cheers.

    Oh, how clever, how interesting!! just about every one of these, a pleasure just to look at.
    As someone who is involved internationally, not only in North America but in Europe and on the African continent, I am personally interested in logos that cross over languages and socio-cultural barriers. This is another design universe altogether, applying an additional filter or criterion to considerations that go into coming up with powerful logos.
    Comments on this aspect and perhaps in future, a series on logos that address this problem would be interesting.
    I came upon this website by hapstance. It was a lucky moment.

  • http://www.logoblog.org/ Nora Reed

    These are fantastic. Simple, but yet very creative. As someone who is always looking for creative logos, it’s always nice to see a well put together collection.

  • http://www.chrismorata.com Chris Morata

    Awesome roundup of logos! Simple, effective, and memorable. My personal logo was recently featured on Jacob Cass’ Logo of the Day website, check it out and let me know what you think!

      @Chris Morata: Very nice Chris! It’s hard to design a personal logo, but you did a great job on yours. Very clever too.

  • http://logoworks.com/ Clayton Shumway

    All of these are great! Thanks for sharing. A nice collection to possibly draw inspiration from.

  • http://lemonstandapp.com Danny Halarewich

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Just because you see a stylized logo does not mean there isn’t a simpler version available for limited mediums, such as print. It’s ignorant to assume that is the case based on seeing a gallery for inspirational purposes.

    I don’t believe we should limit visual presentation on screen to match limited mediums, like b/w print. With that mentality, websites would use “web safe” colors always, and we would still be using tables.

    I can’t speak for all, but at LemonStand we have a 2-color version that works quite well. It scales down very small as well.

    Very good starting point for getting good logo idea. Each one is different and could be developed further.

    • http://www.coroflot.com/wizelizard Wizemark

      So you`re able to develop these logos further? Really? Why don`t you start with your own logo and we can talk after that about your amazing ideas, hm?

    These are great. I think I like the Infinity Crime Studio one the best.

    Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anywho I wanted to say that it’s nice to know that someone else also touched on this as I had trouble finding the same information elsewhere. This was the first place that helped me understand this. Thanks.

    very nice logos

    really appreciate ur effort in finding logos

    Wow cool logos.Thank you for posting them :)

  • http://logoslogotipos.com.pt/ logotipos

    I think the blue chicken with the cloud hint is kind of weak but I liked the rest of them.

  • alexander

    wider scope than most..nice logos!!!

  • http://designbuddy.com Derek Kimball

    Some really nice designs, however I’m not really sure how a logo like the “Lemon Stand” would transfer to single color or lower resolution print. A logo should be simple. While I love the design, it looks more like an icon than a logo per say.

    I think the resolution is quite outstanding and the pixel is enormous. I think a reverberation would be applicable for a viable tensile strength.
