Eight examples of simple yet effective logo designs

Your logo is the first impression that you give out to the world. If it is not catchy, professionally designed and relevant to your business, it could be the last impression that you have the chance to give. Below are eight examples of highly effective logo designs to start the brainstorming process for your own logo design.

Note that no matter what style the logo takes, all of the below logos share the characteristic of simplicity.

This logo clearly communicates the welcoming feeling that the client was going for. As a representation of a neighbourhood favourite coffee shop and bakery, it invites you back again and again.

Networking

Everything about this design screams efficiency and success. The yellow star stops above the letter “i,” emphasizing “king,” the word within a word. The slanted font also insinuates action, success and forward movement.

Full Time

The clock is not filled completely with water but is left somewhat empty at the top as though it is being actively filled, implying movement and ambition, which are both concepts that reverberate with people looking for full-time work. The clock hands are also placed strategically near nine and five, the traditional working hours of a full-time job.

Shark Tours

Featuring a graphic that references both a cruise ship and a shark fin, the logo appeals to an adventurous demographic. The font that is used also implies motion and gives an aquatic feel to the logo.

One

With a graphic that simultaneously resembles the number one and a skyscraper, the logo for this company manages to put a visual component to its namesake and attach the company to a feeling of industry and productiveness.

Origamia

It can be quite difficult to come up with an attractive logo for a specialty product such as fine art paper, but the Origamia logo manages to do just that. The origami fish plays off of the pop culture aspects of origami without becoming too stereotypical.

Reel Farm

This logo couldn’t be any more on point with the name if it tried. Using film reels as the wheels of a tractor, it brilliantly illustrates the slogan of “we grow movies.”

Napoleon Sushi Bar
