    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.

    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).

    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.

    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…

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    These are some great designs for the web. Thanks for giving a kick start to thinking “new”. I have to agree that the logos should also look good on print; even black and white. Keep up the good articles.
