    imaginative … and creative.

  2. E.T.Cook says:

    Even displaying these are examples of good logo design is a bit intellectually dishonest.

    It’s obvious that these people took the logo, and built a brand concept around them. Logo designers never get that kind of freedom. They are asked to design a logo around a brand, or name that already exists.

    Yes, how creative – Lion Bird…now if I could just find a company named Lion Bird out there.

    This is fun to look at – but it’s an exercise for fun, not an example of good logo design that are based on customer constraints.

    I agree with E.T.Cook

    They should award people for these kinds of creative logos, but they are often fictional. I say applaud them, but only award those that are active logos; ie. they are actual logos in use.

  4. Lynda says:

    Very inspiring. Even if they are fictional, they serve to demonstrate how creativity and great design can deliver a message with style!

  5. Karen says:

    Very cool! Thank you for the inspirational, idea-starting collection.

  6. While many of the ideas here are strong in terms of the icon, the typography is often poor: ill-considered to work with the mark, poorly set, etc. A good logo is more than a pretty picture. It comprises thoughtfully chosen and set type, and color palette, not to mention positioning within a competitive landscape.

    I have to agree with other commenters that looking at real logos for real companies is perhaps more useful.

    Some awesome logos, but wtf is doodie call. Seriously, do people call them when there dogs done one?

  8. LoveDesigns says:

    E.T.Cook & 13thGeneral are totally wrong since they don’t think wide enough and they just want the logo designers to create what the clients request ONLY.

    The designers have their freedom to create logos that can make meanings and if you go to the sources of the logos above you can read the description and concepts behind those logos.

    Yes, it’s possible to find companies which have logos like Lion Bird. For instance FIREFOX …

    Most of the logos here are meaningful and it’s not easy to bring out gestalt logos.

    Nice collection! Loved em…
