Álvaro Studio is a creative studio based in Barcelona, Spain specializing in art direction, graphic design, and illustration. They have shared a logo design folio I thought would be worth sharing on abdz. 'Logo design' has been a little obsession even since I designed a logo for a friend of mine who is starting a business. I think it's a kind of project that we do less now being 'product designer' but it's always nice to change things for a while. The process is somehow the same in terms of design thinking but somehow the medium is different.
A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to travel. Yeah it's becoming quite an eventful thing now with the current pandemic that never ceases to end. It was for a small vacation and we decided to visit the country of Austria, more precisely the cities of Vienna and Salzburg. I will be putting together a series of photos and wallpapers for you all. Located in the east part of the Danube, it's a charming city that owes its music heritage including Mozart, and Beethoven for example.
If you have been following the news from SDCC which is the Comic-Con International happening in San Diego, California. Marvel took everyone and shared a social media blast about 'Phase 4'. We all knew this announcement will be coming but I didn't expect to be this huge along with surprises. What was your most surprising announcement? I am pretty excited for the next Thor especially knowing it's going to be Taika Waititi returning as Director.
In this review, we will be taking a look at the Wix Logo Maker, it's a responsive web application where you can create your own logo 'within a few clicks' and questions! During the brief onboarding, you answer a few questions about your business and your personal style and the 'logo maker' will create the logo design for you based on the answers. It's easy, simple and how useful it is actually? That's what we are here to find out!
A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup! For this week, I decided to go full speed on Logo Design! Something I have noticed while hand-picking and browsing this week's selections. I don't know if it's a new trend but designers tend to share all ideas, concepts, and iterations for a logo. I totally dig this visual approach, it's definitely inspiring seeing many taking this to another level. Hope you will appreciate!
You gotta appreciate when designers get out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves to be creative and push the boundaries of making. Well, Yago Ferreira from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; is a good example of that with his 10 logos/10 days series that he shared on his Behance profile. I personally love the first one with the Museo da Arte de Rua, a mosaïc puzzle of goodness mashing together beautifully.
If you love of using a grid systems for every logo design you create, including marks and icons, Kareem Magdi got you covered. He shared a set of beautifully designed logomarks and the grid system behind it. The symbols vary from letters to animals including squirrel and elephants to other more abstract shapes. Personally, I like the use of this technique to make sure that the form is optically balanced, however, I also think it's not needed all the time. It might add too much rigidity to the design.
I am always amazed to see the evolution of the design community and the adoption to new styles and techniques. Motion design seems to be taking over, not only in the design industry, but everywhere. Apps like Snapchat are proof to this evolution and it gives a glimpse of a day where no more static images will be seen. Until then I hope we find a better format than GIF. That said, for this post I want to share some beautiful examples of typography in motion created by Starov Evgeniy and Dubnichenko Alexey.
One of the best games about Spider-Man is out (only for PS4 so far) and has been making a lot of buzz beyond about its gameplay, graphics, and incredible open-world experience. I personally haven't tried it but definitely looking forward to. Going deeper into the subject, we would love to share the work from Bao Nguyen who is a graphic designer based in Sacramento, California. He has worked with the incredible folks at Insomniac Games on designing logos.
Still going strong with our Friday Feature where we would go through your submissions from our Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere. This week, we would like to feature the work of Di Buenio with his Logotyposhnaya series. According to Di Buenio, this is a conceptual art performance where he would design about 50 logotypes through 32 hours.
We would love to share the work from Attila Hadnagy who is a designer and illustrator. Based in London, UK, he has a really nice combination of skillset and today we are showcasing his 2017 collection work on logos. I personally think creating logos are part of what I love doing the most about our work. Creating the visual identity, the very first step is somehow such a long and rewarding process. For which in the end will determine how your clients with go head-to-head into their business and goals.
It's been quite a little while since our last logo design inspiration, well here it is for you guys. This collection has been made and designed by a Lyon-based designer named: Romain Billaud.

We are sharing this fun experimentation that involves logo design, graphic design and obviously words. Designed by Bachir Design, this is a personal collection where a word is spelled out into a straight-forward concept. Seeing this project reminded how often we would encounter a logo and we would be saying how the design is so simple. Well it might be because the work has been well done, this experimenting proves it well.
While most of our team and part of North of America is celebrating a holiday today, I am currently working on a branding/logotype project for a client. Scouting for inspiration on Behance, I stumbled across the work from Wete Studio where they shared their latest of their personal and commercial work. I thought it would be great to share it here on ABDZ, hope you like it!
