5 Ways to Get Inspiration for Logo Design

Do you have a favorite author? Each time you read their latest book, do you stop and wonder how they came up with such a great story and characters? Don’t you wish you could tap that same source of inspiration to help you come up with the perfect logo for your business?

Face it. Some people are simply born with creative minds. As for the rest of us, now and then we can use a helping hand. Here are five resources – one for each finger of that helping hand – that may provide the inspiration you need:

Behance

What can you find on Behance? It might be easier to ask, what can’t you find?

This Adobe-owned site provides access to galleries of inspiring and awesome photography, illustrations, graphic design, photoshop, 3D art, and more from multiple talented designers. 

Behance also includes Livestream presentations so you can witness first-hand how artists go about their craft. And Behance also includes a vector-based program that allows you to scale designs without having to sacrifice quality.

99designs

Flickr

Looking for inspiring photography and good advice?

Millions of new images are updated daily on this popular image and video-sharing platform and you can use the search bar to hone in on what you’re looking for.

Flickr also has a robust online community where creative professionals and non-professionals alike share advice on a wide range of topics, including logo creation, color, typography, and more.

Pinterest

Need to collect and organize a wide variety of inspiring images and ideas gathered from all over the web? Pinterest has you covered. This image-sharing and social media platform allows you to create boards that hold them all together for further review and inspiration.

(And the nice thing is, if your search is approaching the dinner hour, you can also look for inspiring meal ideas)

Search Engines

Does the name of your company or its tagline lend itself to any humorous play on words?

Typing specific words or abstract concepts into a search engine like Google or Bing and selecting images can sometimes net surprising results. Give it a whirl!

One More Thing

While the internet is a fantastic repository for logo design ideas, don’t count out the many other resources available to you.

Remember the old yellow page business directories with the iconic “Let Your Fingers Do the Walking” logo? (Now if only you had thought of that one!) Yellow Page directories may not get thumbed through the way they once did, but they’re still overflowing with ads for local businesses displaying their own unique logos. And don’t forget grocery stores and shopping centers. They’re also jam-packed with inspiring brand logos.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and be inspired! And don’t forget to showcase your design with us on social media, we love to see creativity at work
