    Nice collection of black and white logos, I thought after the popularity of black background websites now black and white logos will also come in lame light as it is used by many designers on their website.

    Nice assortment. I like Kavak the best, it’s original and clever.

      I agree, The Kavak logo is great.
      Once you see the letters form it is really pleasing and very clever.

      Also the “World wide short film” is a nice design, a nice retro feel never goes out of fashion.

      Great logos.

    Kavak is great (even if it does hurt my eyes!)

    All logos should work in mono, in my opinion. The days of fax machines may have passed, but there are still lots of applications where a good, strong, mono logo is important (ie promotional items, such as pens).

      I definitely agree with your take on the monochrome logo. It ensures proper contrast of value and that it will almost always work in color.

    Thanks for these great examples Gisele!

    It really does show that you can design a great logo using minimal colours or none at all in this case.

    I especially like the Jadara logo at the beginning. Reminds me of a Spanish olive tree!!

    I love the black sheep one. It’s like the designer was busy and thought “shit, gotta design that logo” and 3 minutes later it was done, and it was awesome.
