16 Unveiled Logo Design Processes

As a logo designer I have always enjoyed seeing and reading the thought and creative processes of other graphic designers logos – from the project brief, to the initial sketches, right down to the final touches. Understanding how logo designers work and articulate their ideas is a great way to learn and expand our own creativity. More importantly, you understand to value the effort of the design process and appreciate the art of the logo design. Below are 16 logo processes unveiled by a few of my favorite colleagues, logo and graphic designers.

    Dude! Bookmarked this the first time i stumbled (literally)upon it! Great choices! Btw, 2 questions: Dude, where’s the logo you designed above and how’d you come up with the retro vibe for this blog? Love the look! Keep up the good work!

    Gerard,
    Thanks for the bookmark. As for your two questions, I’m not sure what you mean by your first question when you ask “Where’s the logo designed?” If you could clarify a bit I’d be happy to answer. The look and feel of this website was inspired by a walk in a bookstore. I was immediately drawn to a book cover color palette. I combined this with my admiration for typography and produced this end result.
