Favourite graphic logos

logo book by michael evamy

A single, simple, recognizable graphic icon is a great asset to any brand. To stand alone from any typography yet still successfully tell their stories is what makes a mark great.

Shown here are 10 favourite graphic logos for your enjoyment, hopefully they’ll lend you (and me) some inspiration for your next logo design project.

sancti spiritus logo mark
Sancti Spiritus Wines. A great mark, this logo design also won logo design annual Wolda’s 2008 award for Best of Europe category.

martin newcombe logo mark
Martin Newcombe Property Maintenance.

guild of food writers logo mark
The Guild of Food Writers. This has always been one of my favourite marks, simple and very clever.

apple logo mark
The ubiquitous Apple logo design, it seems just about everyone in existence has an I-something now-a-days.

egg in spoon logo mark
Egg in Spoon.

elettro domestici logo mark
Elettro Domestici. ED’s logo design is a great use of negative space, a simple power plug used to create both the companies initials. A great monogram.

fashion centre logo mark
Fashion Centre.

horror films logo mark
Horror Films.

the mill logo mark
Logo design for The Mill. A great, simple mark using only solid bars.

wwf logo mark
The Word Wildlife Fund, one of the world’s largest independent conservation organizations and most recognizable logo designs.
