    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! πŸ™‚

  61. November 9, 2009

    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.

  62. November 9, 2009

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

  63. November 9, 2009

    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:

    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.
