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

Logo Examples


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. alm-communication-custom logo design-3

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. alm-communication-custom logo design-2

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! alm-communication-custom logo design-3

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. adam-jd-photography-custom logo design-1

Photography Logo 2

And here’s another logo we did for Adam JD Photography. Not Adam’s favourite, but it was ours. adam-jd-photography-custom logo design-2

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. 3violon

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
