Custom Logo Design, Logo Examples

6-8-2013

In most countries, when someone turns 18 it’s a cause for celebration. He or she is now considered an adult who can vote, buy beer, and watch R-rated movies. In exactly the same way, the 18th week of logo roundups deserves some recognition and a celebration. Just kidding, we just wanted an excuse to party, however thing. But, we did still handpick the best logo examples of the week for you to enjoy. Here they are:

Brixol

Brixol is a commercial and industrial construction company. Whatever the project, they can do it!

Construction Company Logo

This logo design is essentially a wordmark., stylized to look three dimensional. The upper bar connecting the letters X and L is made to look like a rafter for the roof. Meanwhile, the lower bar connecting X and B looks like it’s the floor or foundation of a house or building. brixol-construction-logo

Gottke Mechanical

Gottke is a mining and civil engineering company that provides diesel fitting and repairs of heavy off road machines for industrial clients.

Mining & Engineering Logo Design

This logo features a large symmetrical gear. Inside this gear is a negative-space design of an excavator’s scoop. The gear represents that all is in good working order, that each part is functioning smoothly. The machinery inside is just an example of the kind of off-road machines that Gottke has to maintain for its clients. mining-logo

In this Gottke Mechanical logo design a mining pick is chipping away at the confines of the logo itself.  Orange is used because its a confident color and a pick is there, because nothing is better than a pick at representing the mining industry as a whole. mining-logo-2

Phoenix Property Management

This company not only manages property for commercial and residential clients, their team of experts also provide consultation and construction work. In other words it’s a one-stop solution.

Property Management Logo

The acronym, PPI, is comprised of rising vertical bars. Even though this is a one-stop solution to property management, it’s still mostly about money. We liked the idea of using pillars here, because while it’s true that they support the roof over one’s head, they also look like bars that depict an investment’s growth over time. property-management-logo

Similarly in this logo, the bars have a dual meaning. The bars represent growth of the investment, but they also look like skyscrapers and visually represent the “property” part of the company name. The “O” with the¬†phoenix is the focal point of the logo. It non-too-subtly communicates that the investment is protected by PPI. property-management-logo-2

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
