Best Places for Logo Inspiration?

  • # May 11, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    I’m curious where everybody here goes for logo inspiration. I’m working for a client starting a new studio which uses a ‘W’ as the main symbol and I’m looking to create something unique which could invokes a Wayne Enterprises feel. However, it of course needs to be unique and I’m looking for various approaches to creating a ‘W’. LogoPond, Dribble, Behance – where else?

    Can you tell us what this logo is supposed to represent? What has the client asked for? Are you just creating a single character or will “Inc., LLC, Co”, etc. be included? These are just a few basic examples you need to know before you begin your research.

    As far as Wayne Enterprises, they have a horrendous logo.

    When you mentioned ‘W’, the first thing that came to mind was this:

    Make sure using Dribbble or Logopond for inspiration is just that. There have been numerous instances where people have copied work from there and I’d hate to see you ruin your reputation as a designer by doing so. Not that you will.

    I’m absolutely not interested in copying anybody’s work. I’m just looking for various treatments of the letter ‘W’. Due to the multiple angles in the letter there’s a lot of ways to go with it and I’m looking for more ideas than I’ve had – I think the way the above image actually extended the middle angles to create a shape on top is quite clever.

    The client is a _very_ well-funded pre-launch company which will be entering at least two industries almost immediately upon their official announcement and they’re launching a design studio of their own alongside those businesses. My original question was a bit vague – it’s not a web design studio, they do product design. They are really looking for something bold and I’ve come up with a few ideas (not 100% sure they’ll let me share them yet) and quite literally told me “If Wayne Enterprises were real and redesigned their logo, that’s what we want.”

    Have you signed an NDA?

    I would recommend listing aspects of the company your creating the logo for. Creating a logo for a car insurance company and then putting a broccoli on it wouldn’t make much sense. So list down what the company does, what all it’s product have in common, and what it’s theme is. Then you might have a better idea of what your trying to achieve.
