The world as we see it, is populated by colors. Every day we see brands and businesses using colors to define their identity (for example, the famous "yellow M" of a multinational fast-food chain). Although logos are traditionally made with minimal colors, the shift towards full color is unmistakable. In fact, a recently published article by Logo Lounge states that, for many years logos have been designed with one or two colors and recently designers have begun to look at the actual surface of the shapes as an entirely new canvas and the use of color is unrestrained. The article goes on to say that, rainbow-like color is often used to represent the concept of a full spectrum, more choices, or additional capabilities. In this compilation we present to you a selection of colorful and vivid logos that are fresh, inspiring and push creative boundaries.
Colorful Geometric Logos
Circles, ovals, squares, and triangles are very effective in logo design. These shapes can be combined with each other and beautiful colors to achieve unique and attractive designs. You may notice, many of these logos use almost all of the seven spectrum colors.
