Beautiful Transparency in Logo Design

When it comes to logo trends, transparency seems to be having something of a moment. It’s a brilliant way to bring branding to life. A well executed transparent logo can add the next level of colour variation and depth. It’s an elegant technique that designers also use to introduce a sense of perspective to a logo.

It can suggest organic growth to a digital mark and add development, connection, continuity and smooth, subtle transition between individual elements. What’s more, transparency can help to make the design brighter, lighter and create the effect of an illuminating the mark. Not convinced? Take a look at this showcase of creatively applied transparency and overlaying techniques to see what we mean.

Logo Design by Jared Milam

This candy-coloured logo is by graphic designed Jared Milam. Look at the way the letters overlap to create new tints of each shade, and the beautiful textures that using transparency adds.

Logo design by Are Sundnes

This is a stunning example of transparency applied to a typographic mark. It’s for Paranaiv, a blog and magazine about photography and style and makes excellent use of layering to create depth, interest and colour variation.

This is a stunning example of transparency applied to a typographic mark. It’s for Paranaiv, a blog and magazine about photography and style and makes excellent use of layering to create depth, interest and colour variation.

Logo design by Fogra

Here’s an example by Sean O’Grady for Pangur Glass Craft. It uses transparency to add a sense of perspective to the stacked bowls. It also helps to suggest that the bowls are made from a delicate base material; incredibly appropriate for a company that supplies glassware.

logo design by joan pons moll

In this example graphic designer Joan Pons Moll uses transparency to create texture on the bird’s feathers and beak.

logo design by tmiint

We love the way that transparency can add a sense of fragility to a digital mark, as can be seen in this example by Mattia Moretto. Check out the way the accent colours are repeated over both the letter I’s for attention to detail.

Logo design by FireBrand

With a seriously reduced colour palette and clever use of transparency, Firebrand, the designer behind this treatment, creates a metropolis of intensity and a real sense of city-scape perspective.

logo design by NEXQUNYX

The company is called wraparound, the designer has used transparency to create a brand that wraps around itself to build depth. Simple, effective and super-smart.

Tribute to Yuri Galitsyn

The Kiev based Ukrainian illustrator and graphic designer Yuri Galitsyn passed away unexpectedly earlier this month.

According to Galitsyn’s LinkedIn profile, he studied book drawing in the early 1980s at the Higher Polygraphic Institute in Kiev (known as the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute) during the twilight years of Soviet ruled Ukraine.

Galitsyn’s body of work was extensive  with a distinct style that incorporated line drawing and animal motifs giving his work a contemporary ’neo-gothic’ feel with the effective use of line weight and shadow to create depth and feeling to his designs.

He was an active member of the online design community. Galitsyn’s Dribble profile displays  more than 2,000 followers and 20,000 ‘likes’ for his designs. His work can be viewed on Dribble.com and LogoMoose (see links at end of post).

As a well-liked and respected member of this community, designers from around the world have publicly shared their feelings about Galitsyn’s death.

“I heard about this tragedy. Really liked his unique style. Glad that you guys didn’t forget him. I think that his style should be called by his name, because I don’t know any other designer who designs logos like that, ” said Lithuanian designer Paulius Kairevičius.

We commissioned Felix Diaconu to curate a roundup of Galitsyn’s most recent designs which we’re publishing today. The Romanian designer says, “The following collection of 25 brilliant logo designs belongs to a great man and designer, Yuri Galitsyn.  Our sincere condolences to Yuri’s family and relatives. R.I.P. Gal! Your work will always be remembered in our hearts!”

35 Logos Inspired by Nature

When it comes to company identities and branding, elements from nature are often used in the design. In certain industries the natural element is a result of the product or service that the business offers (such as a flower in the logo of a florist). However, in many cases the element from nature is not directly related to the product or service of the company. Using nature in the logo may give a more eco friendly feel that the company wants to convey, or it may be chosen for some other reason.

When you are working on logo designs of your own, you may find it to be helpful to see how other logo designers are using nature in their work. In this post we’ll showcase 35 logos created by a variety of designers. Hopefully this collection can serve as some inspiration for your own work.

25 Examples of Logos with Silhouettes

Limited Time: Web Designer’s Bundle 2 – $338 of Premium Resources for Just $29

There are a lot of different styles and approaches that can be used for logo design. If you browse through logo design galleries for some inspiration, you may notice that a number of logos use silhouettes in one way or another. It could be a silhouette of a person, something from nature, a city skyline, an animal, food, or some other object.

One of the reasons that silhouettes often work well in logo design is that the use of silhouettes can sometimes make it easier to create a logo that will also work in a one-color format, as is sometimes needed.

In this post we’ll showcase 25 different logos with silhouettes for your inspiration.

Turn It Up: Musically Inspired Logo Design


  

Many artists, whether digital or traditional find much inspiration in music. It often serves as a great mind opener for large amounts of creativity and style to be ushered in. Some artists believe music helps them to see shapes and colors, and often offers up feelings and emotions to help them execute their work more proficiently. Which is why it’s best to try to listen to music that you know will get your mind going.

Sometimes this inspiration becomes the work. Music based design projects can be extremely fun and creative projects. Whether you are dealing with a musical artist or a music studio, the possibilities can really be endless. Music is such a big, ever-evolving entity that sometimes it requires that extra bit of design work to take it to the next level.

Today, we are sharing some of the best, creative and wonderfully designed logos that are musically inspired. We hope the next time you are on a music based design project, these logos help to inspire you to create something great. If not, turn on some even greater music!

Music Inspired Logos

Go Music
It’s easy to want to refer to ‘stop’ and ‘go’ when you have a company named ‘Go Music’, but what the designer did here was extremely clever and well executed.

MyDJSpace
Simplicity is often key when designing a really good and strong logo–sometimes keeping your logo close to home really makes sense. Here, we have two iconic things associated with DJ’s, the vinyl record and headphones.

Zuim
This logo was created for a podcast that dove heavily into music by offerring critiques and holding open discussions with their audience. The emphasis here was obviously on the music, as the staff and notes are extremely important here.

Radio
Another simple, ‘makes sense’ logo concept that really meshes two things you really think about (or see) when you think of radios. This is a very strong, easy to get logo.

Rockit NightClub
The great thing about this logo is it took two completely different topics (rock music and rockets) and seamlessly put them together. At first glance you see an overly decorated guitar, then you see a rocket launch, leaving lots of smoke behind. Very brilliant.

Jazzcuzzi
The reason this logo is so great is because it really captures the essence of what people believe jazz is; calm, smooth and relaxed. The designer chose to represent this by referencing some sort of beautiful horn.

Cafe Melody
Another extremely clever logo design where the designer meshes two different concepts. The idea of the cafe with a coffee and plate is quickly noticed. However, the designer also see’s a volume knob, used to control the melody. One can also see a person with headphones on.

Installer
Though a strong typographic logo, the designer squeezed in a note of musicality. Why not, when the guitar is one of the key things people associate with rock and roll music.

SwanSongs
This is an extremely beautiful logo that uses a treble clef to serve as the beginnings of a swan. With this logo, many would assume the music or services offered here are extremely beautiful, elegant and tender.

Mind Dead
Again, while this logo is typographically strong, the musical reference cannot be missed. The headphones plugged into the word is a really simple yet effective way of saying this group is worth listening to.

Minerva Music Machine
Much like the previous logo design that referenced piano keys, this designer realized the comparison between the ‘m’ and the piano keys. What stands out is how the longer white keys kind of adds that ‘machine’ like repetition to the logo.

Corpse Music
This is another extremely clever logo. The great thing is that the designer recognized the coffin shape looks a lot like the head of a guitar, and used that to great effect.

Crescendo Music Entertainment
The designer here gets props for skillfully turning the company’s initials into a simplified guitar. Nice imaginative flair at play.

Music Delicacy
At first glance you may see a pot with a big spoon in it, but if you happen to look closer, the concoction in the pot is really in the shape of the vinyl record. It really makes you believe you may have a chance to taste the music.

Music Poet
This is a creatively fashioned logo design. The music note serves as the fountain for the pen, properly and easily creating a relationship between ‘music’ and ‘poet.’

Homegrown Music
This logo makes perfect sense, and will be easy to recognize. No need in fancying up a concept that doesn’t need it.

Sun Music
This logo is absolutely beautiful. While it references the shape of a note, it creates this beautiful movement along the stem while the circle seems to represent the ‘sun.’ Really well executed work here.

Sound Bite
A part of making a great logo is knowing whether to focus on a piece of the concept or the whole concept. The designer here chose to focus on the ‘d’ and ‘b’ in this logo, transforming them into a pair of headphones.

Daily Jazz
Not only do you think of smooth sophistication when you think of ‘jazz’ but you almost always think of saxophones. This designer found a way to marry the idea of jazz and paper (writing) to create this logo.

Vinopiano
This is one of those logos where you may see one thing, such as three wine glasses, or you may see another thing, the black and white keys on the piano. This is another clever, simple and well executed design.

Rhythm Magical
Though not exclusively about music, the designer snuck a bit of it in this logo design. Yes, magic and rabbits in hats go hand in hand, but the designer threw in a music note that is concealed as the inside of the rabbits ear. It also could look a bit like the rabbit has on headphones; either way it’s a nice subtle addition.

Campusounds
This logo, again, very simply refers to the music behind this company’s purpose. Campusounds is about hearing the music around different campuses, which is evident by the border which creates a bit of a ’round and round’ movement.

Music Fashion
While the focus on the logo again is typographic, it is overall greatly executed. The typeface used does remind you a bit of ‘fashion’ and the way everything is styled it actually makes you believe in the idea that one can fashion the sound of music.

Rock Stock Festival
When you think of rock and roll, you think of this little ‘devil horn’ sign folks throw up at the concerts. The great thing about this logo is that the fingers seem to double as rock.

Music Books
Here, we have a logo that, again, plays with the piano keys, but this time makes a great comparison between the keys and books on a shelf.

Sounderated
This logo is a bit of a play on words where you can see it saying ‘so underrated’. The logo captures that perfectly by having upside down sound waves.

Plug & Play
More typography play here and just a wonderful idea that makes sense. Everything is connected in some way much like the cords musicians use to plug in and play.

Finishline Studio
This designer chose to play off notes, which is an easy task, but here they completed the look and purpose by making the bar look like that of a finishline.

40
This designer should be commended on their eye, as they created the ’40′ out of shadows, but also completed this look by adding eighth notes to the shadows in places that really make it pop.

Music to My Eyes
This one make take a while to see but the piano keys actually make the longer part of a pencil (thus the triangle at the bottom). It makes sense with regards to writing music.

Mixtape Attack
A mixtape, often associated in previous years with cassette tapes, would be an obvious choice for this logo. However, the designer went a step further by creating a little ‘monster’ out of the cassette tape, adding in the idea of ‘attack.’

Passionato
Another rendition of a note, but the movement and elegance in this execution is extremely…passionate. Really beautiful logo.

Devil’s Music
If there was no name on this logo, we’d all pretty much be able to figure out what it was called ‘Devil’s Music.’ Excellent finished product.

Music Snail
This designer used a treble clef and a double eighth note to help create the look of a snail. This simple yet clever execution is genius and extremely inspiring.

Walking Alone
This simple logo takes the idea of walking on a sidewalk and creates a saxophone out of it. Again, this designers eye should definitely be commended.

Music Gym
Simplicity is really key when you are doing logo design and this is one of the logos that just gets that and still makes perfect sense. The connection is clear, the message is clear and the finished product is excellent.

Shanghai Voices
It’s almost second nature to hear that a musical group wants a logo and to immediately want to fire up something that has musical notes or a treble clef in it. The best way to counter that is to revision it, and that’s exactly what this designer did by adding a silhouette of a famous building in Shanghai. The movement is great here, as well.

Duncan & Noel Acoustic Duet
This logo is a bit more like a graphic, but the execution is pretty awesome. It gives the sense that this duet, would have a nice acoustic guitar and a really folky or down to earth sound, judging by the design.

Express Yourself: Logo Development Best Practices

Travel and destination brands operate in a complex environment. Not only do they compete within the world of travel, but also with many other categories that vie for our personal free and leisure time. This includes TV, movies, video, computer games, the comforts of home, recreational and leisure activities, family time, soccer, even shopping.

Before starting an identity project, it is essential that you analyze the competitive set and then determine what gives your brand distinction. Since the competition is so broad, its important that travel and destination brands understand where they fit so they can successfully stand out from all of their competitors.

Distinctive design can give a brand a unique presence and expression.

While a logo is only one component of a brand, it’s purpose can be thought of as a visual ambassador. The right logo will help create desire. It will have a point of view. And set the standard. It should represent a body of core ideas, yet rarely can it perform this task literally. The best logos imply meaning through representation and metaphor. They can take their form as wordmarks, or letterforms, as graphic symbols or a combination of words, letters and symbols. They range from the literal to the illustrative to the abstract.

With so many possibilities, how do you choose the right direction?

When creating a travel or destination logo, we examine the competitive environment and then consider three elements – shape, color and content. It is unrealistic to expect a logo to represent every detail of your brand, but having a good ambassador with a unique, authentic expression will serve your destination well for years to come.

Competitive logo review

Given the benefits of a distinctive identity, it’s a wonder that so many travel and destination brands within a competitive set use similar iconography in their logos. Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Days Inn all have a sun icon. The MGM Grand and Ritz Carlton logos both sport a beautiful lion.

Many cities utilize a rendering of their skyline. Golf course logos all too often incorporate complex illustrations or clip art of golf clubs. According to Logo Design Guru, a website where you can buy a logo starting at just $99: “A golf course logo graphic should be very creative and must highlight the salient features of golf, like clubs, balls, etc.” In other words — make it look like every other golf course.

A few years back, when the Wanderlust team was rebranding Windham Mountain, we collected the marketing materials of 52 competitors, to better understand their competitive set and search for an opportunity to create meaningful differentiation. What we found was nothing short of cliché: 90% of the competition had a mountain in their logo. The mountain iconography ranged from the abstract to the literal, but in the end each of these resorts built an identity around what makes them similar, not what makes them different.

The folks at Windham learned from this exercise that mountain imagery in whatever form was something they needed to stay away from in order to stand out from the crowd. The place to draw inspiration for their identity was their unique brand positioning — that differentiating, relevant, deliverable and ownable mojo that makes Windham Mountain desirable to its customers.

There are actually a handful of ski resorts who have gone so far as to eliminate references to anything to do with skiing and snowboarding in their logos. The ones that have done this are attempting to communicate their brand essence, what makes them different. Now one might argue, for example, that a logo like Beaver Creek’s has nothing to do with skiing and therefore doesn’t communicate to skiers, especially if you had never heard of Beaver Creek before.

Picture 1

Beaver Creek’s logo is about luxury. Its monogram of interlocking ‘B’ and ‘C’ letterforms are reminiscent of Coco Channel’s C’s or Gucci’s G’s. The script typographic wordmark would more likely be found on a bottle of champagne.

While Beaver Creek’s logo is effective at differentiating the resort, script type and monograms are not necessarily the best way to communicate luxury in all situations. In fact, scripts and monograms are actually pretty common in the broad category of luxury. However, Beaver Creek was the first to successfully and sustainably position themselves as a luxury ski resort and, as a result, they own it. No competitor can take this position away from them as long as they remain true to the promise.
