when designing logos it is always important to keep in mind who your client is, what they stand for, what they want to represent, and who their audience is. This is important, so that you are designing something that actual represents the client rather than just something that looks nice. Design is more than looking nice, it is also problem solving and coming up with the best solution in order to help your client, research is therefore very helpful as well.
Below I am including some logos that I like and why I like them
La Maison Theatre I really like this logo for the maison theater. The type is clean and simple, as well is the design and the colors compliment each other nicely. Their website explains that they are for the youth of all ages. I think that this logo gives the feeling of youth and therefore fits the company well. Further, I like the simplicity of it, it is not over designed; nice
The Woodlands logo is also very nicely done. The neighborhood advertises that it is the "natural neighborhood" therefore the use of a leaf and tree is very fitting. The addition of little elements such as a hat and a bird on the branches are nice additions. It also has a nice usage of negative space.
First Vine; I really like the first vine logo because it is simple and clean. It is appropriate to use a wine bottle for a wine company, and the use of type fitting nicely inside the bottle looks nice as well.
When designing logos draw out every idea that you have, even if it seems silly, sometimes your silly ideas can turn into something great. Come up with as many ideas as you can, and try your ideas at different angles, smaller, bigger, in color - do not limit your creativity.
