  • Logo inspiration?

    Where do you gather the inspiration for creating logos? I've got one to do and the company's name is Ace Blah Blah Suchandsuch. Even tho it's got nothing to do with casinos or gaming, all I can envision in my head is an ace of spades. This is actually a newly purchased company and will be a sister company to the original, which I did the logo for as well. The logo for that one is a sort of old world looking globe and the name of the company, so I thought maybe go that route, so I tried working in an old world compass design. I had a couple ok ones but it just seemed weird for the name "ace" and I just can't seem to get any more ideas flowing. Where do you go for inspiration?

      I start with word association. Actually, I wrote a big long writeup of how I design logos, if you're interested, it's here:

      I find that www.visualthesaurus.com can be quite helpful in the brainstorming process.

      Hope that helps some.

        I usually don't use logo books, or logo sites, for inspiration - a little too easy to subconciously use another's design concepts. However, I do push myself away from my computer, get out into the world and soak up all I see. My best logo concepts always come to me when I'm doing things not related to design at all.

          It's the awful vb forum software. It hates iOS amongst many things. Fixed the formatting for you

          I'm sorry this post is formatted so horribly, no idea what's going on with this site. Nothing seems to be working.
