Weekly Logo Roundup 47

January 11th, 2014 Posted by Custom Logo Design, Logo Examples No Comment yet

The Arctic winds b-r-r-r-ing with them a sharply biting chill that keeps us wide awake and on our toes this wonderful wintry morning! And so… We decided to stay indoors this weekend and keep our almost freezing toes warm and dandy in a pair of fuzzy bunny slippers. The big, red X on the calendar marks today’s post as the 47th Saturday lineup of logo designs, which cover a wide array of concepts from straightforward to symbolic.

Ancient City Firearms

Ancient City sells a variety of handguns, rifles, and high-powered firearms as well as different types of ammunition and related merchandise, such as scopes, vests and holsters. This gun store also has an outdoor shooting range where customers undergo tactical training and develop their sharpshooting skills.

Firearms and Shooting Range Logo

This logo for a firearms and tactical supplies retailer uses an American bald eagle as its insignia. The eagle represents courage in battle, victory over one’s enemies, and the sharp senses of a true hunter or huntress. In this design, the eagle’s widespread wings are shaped like two automatic pistols that share a single magazine (the eagle’s tail).

Grinder Coffee Bar

As a coffee bar, Grinder serves many kinds of coffee (hot or iced), herbal teas, and fruit-flavored teas. This place also serves coffees fortified with spirits and keeps an interesting cellar of good to excellent wines.

Coffee Bar Logo

The logo plays around the coffee grinder tool, which replaces the lowercase “i” in Grinder. The grinder and coffee beans have the same color as the text for ‘coffee bar’ for cohesiveness between the company name and the description. All in all, it’s a simple logo design for a new hangout – a cafe and bar in one.

DigiShpun Publishing

DigiShpun is a digital publishing company that owns and operates several online magazines and blogs.

Publishing Company Logo

This logo design for a publishing company is a cleverly put-together wordmark. The text has two colors: gray and blue. The areas filled with blue follow the scalloped outline of an open book. Meanwhile, the gray text of ‘Publishing’ at the bottom right unites the whole logo with the irregular gray areas on the upper parts of the stylized text.

Publishing House Logo 2

This is a black-and-white version of the DigiShpun Publishing logo. The company is divided into two parts: the white ‘Digi’ and the black ‘Shpun’. As a digital publisher, the company is responsible for increasing the popularity and readership of several online magazines and professional blogs. The content these virtual publications covers many topics and produce a “digitally spun” network, so to speak.

Wishkah Valley Loggerettes

The Wishkah Valley Loggerettes is an all-female high school basketball team from the Wishkah Valley School District, located 12 miles north of Aberdeen WA, on the picturesque Olympic Peninsula.

Sports Team Logo

The sports team logo for the Loggerettes shows this basketball team’s quirky side. Standing at the right of the text logo is a cartoon image of a honey-blond girl in her basketball shorts and jersey. She carries an orange basketball under her left arm and hefts up a mean-looking axe over her right shoulder. The axe means one thing: the girls are ready to chop down anyone who gets in their way towards victory.

Weekly Logo Roundup 37

October 19th, 2013 Posted by Custom Logo Design, Logo Examples No Comment yet

Good day! Once again we’ve reached an end-of-week tradition at Little Guy Logos. It’s the 37th weekly roundup of logo designs we think are exceptional and worthy of mention.

Pure Results Nutrition

Pure Results Nutrition educates, and sells nutritional health products.

Nutrition Consulting Logo 1

There are three meaningful elements in this logo design for Pure Results Nutrition: a heart-shaped outline, a check mark, and the image of an apple. The apple represents the healthy ingredients the company uses to make their products. The heart-shaped outline refers to the love and care they put into manufacturing their products. And, the check mark means they’ve made sure the products contain all the necessary nutrition required for good health.

Wholehearted Nutrition

The aim of Wholehearted Nutrition is to provide nutrition advice that promotes healthy eating. Its back-to-basics philosophy is based on consumption of natural, whole foods.

Nutrition Consulting Design

In this logo design for Wholehearted Nutrition, three elements play a vital role in advancing the company’s philosophy on healthy eating. These elements are the apple, the heart, and the empowered human figure. The apple serves as a general symbol for good nutrition, while the heart is the passion and discipline that is required to make any healthy diet work. Finally, the human figure in the logo represents the individual to which a healthy diet is customized so it abides with the nutritional needs of the person in question.

Cambridge Paris Floorball Club

Cambridge Paris Floorball Club is a local floorball club.

CPFC Logo Design

The design for the CPFC logo is simple, but meaningful. The sport is played with an “air” ball that’s similar to a golf ball, but full  of little holes. The ball is seen shooting fast into the air in this modern sports seal.

Lovely Korean Fashion

Lovely Korean Fashion is an online shop selling the hottest fashion from China, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, and Indonesia.

Lovely Korean Fashion Logo

The logo for this online shop has a ‘kawaii’ quality that’s common in Asian design. A pink shopping bag is used as an emblem because the store caters to a largely female market. Our client wanted to see a butterfly added to the design, so we subtly turned the bag’s handles into butterfly wings.

Halifax Seasonal Sunrooms

Halifax Seasonal Sunrooms sells the Solarium Optimum brand of sunrooms. These structures are either permanent or freestanding installations with opaque roofs and clear glass walls.

Halifax Logo

The logo design for Halifax features a portion of a sunroom with glass walls and the light of the sun behind it. It’s a direct reference to the product they’re selling.

Weekly Logo Roundup 2 – So long and thanks for all the fish!

February 16th, 2013 Posted by Logo Examples No Comment yet

Here are some of our favourite logos for the week. Carrying on with the trend from last week we’ve got another tech company in communications (we really enjoyed designing that logo) and a logo project for a photographer.

ALM Communications

Here’s a company that installs, upgrades, reconfigures or removes RF equipment for mobile phone carries. This means that the company owner is in a shelter on the ground or on top of a building in the city hanging over the edge installing new antennas.

Because of his quirky sense of humour (self-described), the company owner was drawn to some of the fun and unexpected logos we’ve done (like this plumbing logo here), and wanted something with a similar feel.

Communications Logo 1

Here’s the logo that was ultimately chosen. Remember that can-telephone game you played as a kid? Well here’s a logo with that concept. For a company that deals with very serious technology, this logo is unexpected and certainly memorable.

Communications Logo 2

When dealing with the theme of communication, we thought of outer space communications and the SETI project. This logo is not only friendly, but also suggests that ALM Communication can handle signals from far reaches of space.

Communications Logo 3

And here’s another quirky logo. While you might see dolphins as intelligent mammals with sophisticated signal patterns of communication (they totally are by the way), we envisioned this logo with a Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy vibe to it (yup. We’re all fans here). So long and thanks for all the fish!

Photography Logo 1

We do a bit of logos for photographers. Usually they are used for watermarking the photos, sometimes as profiles for social media sites, often on business cards. Here’s one version of a photography logo we’ve done for Adam JD Photography.

Photography Logo 2

And here’s another logo we did for Adam JD Photography. Not Adam’s favourite, but it was ours.

3 Violon

3 Violon is a Swiss skiing team. They handle the toughest slopes, so they wanted a tough looking logo.

Sport team logo

The logo colors have a light to dark treatment, which added to the feel of intensity of the logo. In the middle we added 3 mountains to echo the ‘3’ in the team’s name and added a ski mask to make a tough looking skier out of this mark. The ski poles are criss-crossed to give a pirate look, again to communicate tough team persona.
