    Is it just me or do many of these have the same or at least close to the same colour schemes?

  • Steven Snell

    Grant,
    Yes, I would agree that many of the color schemes are similar.

    I guess when you need to be colorful you’ll have to include most of the colors in the color wheel. Nice list. Thanks.

    Its like they like all the same?! but I like the vintage colors of MEDIAFACTORY and SHARE EFFECT plus the trickiness of XANDER MEDIA’s Logo.

    the rest ok! Nice Collection.

    Some really lovely logos! I think that using many colors was one of the trends in logo design in 2008.

    Nice to see some logos with rainbow pallets :)

    It would be interesting to see how these logos all work in black, that would show the true strength of these!

    quite neat

    Some good examples here, but I think some of the more intricate designs would lose identity when they have to be reproduced at small sizes.
    I agree with Gareth above, that a logo should still work when reduced to a single colour.

    Mike,
    I agree on the size issue. And in most cases I also agree that it should work without the colors, but I don’t think that is an absolute that applies to every situation. For example, some logos might only be created for a website with no intent of ever using them in print.

    nice collection :) a lot of them are similar, but at the same time they’re all unique! Love them!

    Steve,

    I don’t agree with you that some logos may not ever be in print. You can’t predict where that company will want to show itself. It’s very short sighted to say never in print. What happens when your best client asks you to sponsor an event and all you need to do is supply your logo for the program. Part of designing a good logo is to get it to look good in all situations that it could potentially be used.

    Hi Carmen,
    I agree with you, but I didn’t say they would never be used in print. I said “some logos might only be created for a website with no intent of ever using them in print.” It’s close but not the same thing. I agree with you that it is best to have a versatile logo, however, I think it’s not accurate to assume that all logos need to be created with print in mind. Maybe as a logo designer who is doing work for a client, than yes, I would say it’s best to keep it versatile. But if I were to work on a logo for a small website of my own that was unlikely to ever have anything printed, I would be more concerned about creating a logo that looks good online, even if it means it may not be good for printing.

    I never think when designing a logo, to incorporate all the colours. But these are all very creative and effective examples of colourful logo designs.

    Good collection. One would note that many of these are readily available on various stock images websites but the designers for the above logos took the stock images to a whole new level.
    Thanks for sharing the collection. Very inspiring & refreshing.

    Nice logos! But why was the Apple logo left out? It builds on the same rainbow color scheme. Well, maybe it’s too known to post it… :) But still, I think it’s pretty. :)
