  • Thanks. Another compilation of great ideas.

  • Roel

    Those are absolutely stunning logo’s.

    However, most of them are probably case studies of companies that don’t actually exist (I’ve seen lots of those on logopond.com). Many times you can see that the designer had a clever idea and made up a company name that matches that idea. However in reality you have to deal with a dull uninspired company name and have to create something clever that matches that name. Which is really really difficult! 🙂

  • Roel,
    You’re right and I agree that it is often much more difficult in a real world scenario. Still, I think they can be good sources of inspiration.

  • I really, really like these my favorite is push the bottle.

  • Great collection. I happen to be working on a couple logos right new so this was great timing. I posted a link to this page on my daily design blog:

  • Great, i like it.

  • Love the Swing Studios Logo! Thanks for pulling them together.

  • What a creative selection of logos!!
    The Sushi logo is so clean and concise. I also thought that the Modani and Wiesinger Music logos were great because they incorporated the companies’ product or service into the design.

  • Are you aware you lately change hosts? Perhaps it is just my personal computer however the weblog is repowering upset behind these days.

  • I would like to see these designers design for the real world. Let the client get a hold of these concepts and see what happens. Yes they are good, but put them into play and see how many remain on the list.
