Are you looking to have a new logo designed for your business, product or service? Whether you are hiring me at Inspiring Creative or someone else :-P, it’s a good idea to have an idea of what you are going for. By picking a few examples, it will help me or any designer fully understand the look and feel of the logo you envision for your own business.
It’s very important to state, however, that the purpose of finding inspiration is NOT to find a logo to copy or plagiarize. That’s bad. A good logo designer can understand the difference between being inspired and copying a logo. Regardless of who you hire, make sure that they guarantee the logo designed for you is original.
Essentially, this is a list for my own clients to get inspiration, but all are welcome to check out these websites and get inspired by great logos.
Brands of the World is not just a great resource for logo inspiration, they also have logos available for download for designers to use as resources. It’s not the best quality of logos, but they have quantity.
Logofaves is a well put together a showcase of logos for inspiration. The logos are good quality and should be a great resource for getting your own inspiration.
I debated including Logo Lounge because it’s really a resource for designers. It’s a membership-based site but it’s worth it if you are a designer and you need excellent quality inspiration. For a business owner looking for inspiration on their own website, you probably wouldn’t want to spend the money on a membership. They do have a good blog that could be valuable to you to learn more about logo design.
That’s my list. If it was helpful for you, tell me which sites were the most helpful and I’ll sort the list out by how helpful it was to the readers. If you have other sites to add, mention them in the comments. If I think they will be helpful, I’ll add them to the list.
