logo design idea

Sometimes you need to play to get the creative juices flowing. Even the simplest idea  can give you a boost in the creative process especially when used to the potential. So i was thinking to go back in time to elementary school and work with an idea that we used to play with back then. We are going to create a butterfly logo out of paint.

Sometimes i seem to be in need of a folded paper-like text, so I thought I'd give it a try and simulate this in Adobe Illustrator. You'll be able to use this either for a folded paper logo design or for other design work. We will use only Illustrator to create a text that will look like built using folded strips of paper.

I haven't used this tool in Photoshop until recently, but i found that it can be a very powerful tool and nevertheless fun to play with. This tool can be used to design lots of things and for this post i found it very useful for designing a barbed wire logo.

Sometimes a typeface seems to be just enough to serve as an inspiration for a logo design idea. With a smart tweak and a bit of color, a typeface could work very well in representing a company or organization's brand. I admire the designers that were able to see beyond the text font in front of them and, through selecting an appropriate typeface, making adjustments to it and adding a specific color scheme, they were able to come up with amazing text based logo designs.

I alway like to keep handy different design ideas before approaching a new logo project. So i thought i'm going to do a series of logo design ideas and post here. The first approach is to use a photography to design a logo element or symbol. This is especially appropriate when in need of a natural element, like a flower, a tree, a fruit or a landscape and has the advantage of giving the final product a sort of natural or wild appearance.
