    All look great except for that Poseidon logo. I mean if a recruitment agency want to attract as many candidates as possible showing a fish that looks kind of dead won´t help them so much.

      It’s supposed to resemble a tie.

    • optical

      hahah. you fail at design if you couldn’t recognize that.

      • heymynameismark

        Tressly & optical – you two are both wrong.

        Omer has recognised the fish symbol correctly… it’s for Poseidon Jobs. Poseidon is the Greek God of the sea. One of his symbols being a fish… I’d say they pulled that one off pretty well!

        • heymynameismark

          PS. It also doubles as a tie and shirt

          • heymynameismark

            So I was wrong saying you are both wrong. What I should have said was, you are both right! It’s a fish and a tie – for obvious reasons

    Helpful inspiring collection.

    Cloud Corner is really awesome.

  • http://www.thelogorunner.com Rob

    great collection, personal favourites would be “birdie pro shop” and “twins” – classic

  • http://www.paulolyslager.com Paul Olyslager

    I agree with Rob, the birdie pro shop is nicely done. But the absolute winners are cloudcorner and castle print… Really like these kind of posts, keep them coming please :)

    i love the design of bloom logo looks very simple but professional

  • Tom

    I’m not sure if I agree with most of the commenters/author of this article.

    Most of these logos are just examples of the current obsession with gradients/rainbow colour schemes.

    Sure they look pretty and trendy, but that isn’t what makes a great logo. Nearly all of them will look really dated when the next trend comes along.

    I did like the birdie pro shop though, because it actually makes sense.

    shows some effort has been put

  • jesse meyer

    @Omer Rosenbaum It’s a tie, you idiot.

  • http://www.chotrul.com/ Mark Carter

    I sometimes wonder if the logos in these sort of showcases are used commercially, or whether they are just design exercises. Some of them are extremely complex for a logo, to my eyes at least …

  • http://www.ihoneyjoo.com Kenny

    Very nice logos indeed!

  • http://www.tutoriallounge.com Tutorial Lounge

    really beautiful stuff.

  • http://www.subcorpus.net/blog/ subcorpus

  • grux

    castleprint the best!!!!! NICE NICE NICE

  • http://www.w2point.com Web 2.0 Tools

    Awesome collection, thanks..

  • Christian

    How many of these were designed for actual companies or clients?
    Design websites are saturated with these “10 Awesome Creative SuperDooper Logos” posts filled with nothing but half-baked ideas and trend fodder. The most memorable logos are simple, can be produced in 1 color, and withstand the test of time and trends.
    Most of these designs will look dated in 6 months.

  • shinful

    Only Birdie, Studio Eight, CastlePrint, Umbrella Prints, Smart Book and Twi2s that hit the mark. Concept, Aesthetic and Most applicable logo. Meaning it’s still good in black and white and small scale legibility.
    The rest are crap, eye-candy stuff and lack of originality and uniqueness. Sorry folks.
    Special mentions are too Cloud of Love. Very unique and original, but I’d like to see how it went in 2 colors and even 1 color.

    When you made a logo, it has a big allocation of financial promotion to branding its image!

    Without a huge and glamour promotion, a logo is just a scratch on paper! Really…?!?

    Some cool logo designs there. Twins was a very creative and simple logo. I really like it!

  • Web Samurai

    Birdie, Studio 8, and Twins are the best. Simple and Creative.

  • Klortho

    You left out my favorite, the OGC logo:

  • http://agentfusion.com Jason Barone

    Wow, Twins is simply AWESOME.

    The Birdie Pro Shop logo really caught my attention; it is classic. Another favorite is Fly – but it took me a moment to get it.

    I like the idea of the LOOK logo – so simple but even though a eye-catcher

  • http://www.leolavalle.com Leo

    Some are very very clever, now, I don’t mean to be a hater but it is MUCH easier when you create the project or the company name and then the logo… some seem like they followed that path of coming up with a logo idea or concept and then creating the non-real company around….

  • http://ravivora.com Ravi Vora

    I wish more clients were as open to genius logos like these. Most of the time they want a “me too” approach.

    Sometimes you get lucky though, like I did when redesigning the Dune Novels logo.

    Nice list nonetheless!

    Great logos always like design that a easy and descriptive. The bigest brands in the world, Apple, Microsoft, Macdonalds, Facebook, Google etc all have some of the simplest logos you will see and it worked for them.
