Weekly Logo Roundup 28

Custom Logo Design, Logo Examples

8-17-2013

If we’re on the 28th week of our logo roundup, then we’re seven months into this tradition of giving recognition to the best and brightest works in logo design. For this week’s selection, the Little Guys Logo team has unmasked the following six logos that have simple and clean designs that are both expressive and engaging.

ABX Construction

ABX Construction has a team of expert able to consult or assist in areas of carpentry, stonemasonry, and other professional building services. They are available for immediate deployment to construction or renovation jobs for residential and commercial clients. They also offer their years of knowledge and expertise for consultation jobs.

Construction Company Logo

The client specifically asked for the ABX Construction company logo to have the same colors as the Facebook logo. In this design for the corporate logo, a continuous strip of metal that’s been painted steel blue (light) on one side and navy blue (dark) on the other was folded together into a square version of the Mobius strip. Because you’ll never know at what point this seemingly endless strip started or ended, this configuration serves as a stable framework for building formidable houses and skyscrapers. construction-company-logo

Construction Company Logo 2

In this variation of the corporate logo design, the company name’s acronym ABX is printed in a stylized font laid against a block of blue and spotlighted from above. The letter A has no bar in the middle and its left leg has been extended beyond the block. Meanwhile, the letter X has its right arm following a continuously straight line beyond the blue square background with rounded corners. construction-company-logo-2

Pacific Paper

Pacific Paper is an international trading company that directly imports ready-made paper products and sells them through its network of retailers. The firm is also a wholesaler of all-natural wood pulp and uses this raw material to produce its own brand of stationery papers, lined pads, notebooks, and stick-on notes.

Import Business Logo

The product logo design for Pacific Paper was inspired by happy childhood memories of playing with paper boats after a heavy downpour. The logo has been stylized to look like it’s entirely made out of paper.┬áThe neon yellow paper for the shinning sun, the layered cutouts for the ocean, and of course a paper boat. As a kid that’s all you needed (if that) to imagine┬áthat this paper boat has been sailing by the sandy shores of a tropical island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. import-business-logo

Leopard Data

Leopard Data builds custom information systems that gather, track, protect, and analyze data for its commercial and industrial clients. These custom information systems have various functions in accounting, customer relationship management (CRM), document management, enterprise resource planning (ERP), and other areas of business or industrial operations.

IT Company Logo Design 1

In this conceptual design for an IT company logo, the silhouette of a leaping leopard is constructed out of triangles in different shapes and shades of blue. The image looks like an animal configuration in Tangram, which is a challenging Chinese puzzle that uses flat wooden pieces that have been cut into triangles and trapezoids of various exact sizes. The pieces are meant to precisely fit together to form the desired shape. it-company-logo-design-1

IT Company Logo Design 2

This design concept for the Leopard Data logo features a leopard’s eye, but where you’d expect to see the triangle for the light, you see a cursor point. The lighting effects moves the viewer’s focus from the cat’s eye down to the stylized text of the company name from left to right. The leopard’s eye represents the company keeping an eye on/looking after their clients information system. it-company-logo-design-2

Buddies Burger Bar

Buddies is family-style restaurant that serves stomach-filling meaty burgers with hand-cut fries on the side and cold beverages.

Restaurant/Burger Joint Logo

This logo design for Buddies Burger Bar takes their customers to the 40s and 50s with this retro design. That’s when local burger joints were largely popular among blue-collar workers and their families as dining spots to grab a hearty but inexpensive meal as well as dating spots for starry-eyed young lovers. The seal is actually a bottle-cap which again is appropriate for the Coca Cola craze of that time period. restaurant-logo-burger-joint

Planning Your Logo?

As you look for a logo designer, keep in mind that a designer needs to pair creativity with great technical expertise. For example:

  • If the wrong design program is used, your logo will blur when resized.
  • If unprintable colors are used, your logo will look wrong when printed.
  • If final quality control is skipped, your logo will have costly mistakes.

Business owner trying to save a few bucks just end up paying twice to redo their logo and reprint their marketing material. Avoid surprises, by learning about impossible colors, vector graphics, and the importance of quality control. Learn more
