Logo of the month: August 2012

We're back with a "hot from the oven" new release of The logo of the Month, here at The Logo Mix gallery, after a long summer break. I've got to confess, I thought this was an easy one… few good logo designs over the summer, put them together and bam, the logo of the month is ready. This couldn't have been more far from the truth. It seems that a lot of logo designers are keeping busy over the summer, and that they are quite inspired too. We've had an amazing list of logo designs to choose from and we've had to put in quite a bit of work to select the best ones.

We've also come up with a new way of presenting the things that impressed us about a logo design: Thumb up, for the things that we think are greatly achieved, and Thumb down, for the things that we thought needed some improvement (if it's the case). Hope you'll enjoy it.

We've got a special designer mention this month that goes to milena, who, even though she didn't score the logo of the month, had 3 amazing logos in the top ten, and a few other in her portfolio that worth your time.

Check out a cool selection with the best logo designs posted on The Logo Mix Gallery in the month of August 2012, and leave a nice comment for the amazing designers that shared their work with us!

+ Amazing illustration that really tells a story

+ High elegance for a monochrome design
+ Great use of the negative spaces (for face, hand and legs)
+ Amazing typography fit

+ We love the colors, and how they really make the logo appealing
+ Great way the designer linked the style of the chosen font with the style of the symbol

I think a bit of color for the logo type would have given it a bit more finess


08. Personal Logo by marekmundok

Thumb up

06. Magicial Coffee Logo by chrisworks

+ Exceptional, custom designed typeface works very well with the design and complements the illustration
+ Very nice addition of the star elements to give us a taste of magic happening right under our nose

Maybe its just me, but I felt the need of a little bit more color. Seems just a tiny bit austere.
