Nouveau Theatre de Montreuil

Nation: France

The design of the logo has been inspired by the Institution’s new building. Lines coming from different directions meet and inter-twine to finally draw the outline of the building and thereby create its volume. It is the meeting point of exterior and interior. While the lines capture the theatre, they also burst out of its confines. It represents the artistic dynamic of this place of creation and the international aspect of the Theatre’s activities.

The company mostly deals with the logistics of managing nightclub DJs who work primarily with vinyl records. Hence the trademark was designed to reference not only the traditional black record discs but also the circular degrees symbol. 38 South does business with nightclubs, booking agents and the music industry, so an element of cool was required in the overall feel of the trademark.

Top 10 Logo Design Inspiration Galleries

Top 10 Logo Design Inspiration Galleries

Sponsor-



Need logo design inspiration? Below we feature 10 of the best logo design galleries for all of your inspirational needs.

Logo Lounge

Image

Logo Lounge is the largest and my favourite logo design inspiration gallery… however, it is a paid service. It is $99 a year but it is totally worth it. As a member you can submit your designs to be included in their logo design books and browse all other submitted designs. The search function is by far their strongest point. My highest recommendation.

Logo Pond

Image

LogoPond is really a community of logo designers… It is a place to share, discuss, get feedback and inspiration for your logo design. Users can select the “View All” gallery to view all the logos submitted to the site.

Logo Of The Day

Image

Logo Of The Day features a new logo design every day for your inspiration. Users can also suggest a logo to be awarded the Logo Of The Day award. Submissions are judged and are only included if approved by Jacob Cass (myself) & Jeff Fisher. You can also rate logos on a scale of one to five.

Stationery Style

Image

Stationery Style is a place that features all types of stationery + logo designs. Make sure you make use of the ‘Filter Results’ function hidden away at the top of the page… Click options. This place features logo designs in context so it a great place for inspiration.

Logo Gala

Logo Gala

Logo Gala was started in January and it differs from most other galleries by design and the fact that you can choose logo designs based on colour. They also have a featured logo section with mini interviews and also a blog.

LogoMoose

Image

Logo Moose is another logo design gallery that gets nearly every day and features only high quality logo designs. It also has a good tagging system in place.

Fave Up

Image

Fave Up’s site is a bit drag at the moment but the good news is that it is undergoing a redesign and it should be up soon with many new improvements. The site features mostly user submitted designs, however I find that many of the logos are already on Logo Pond. You can also rate the designs.

Logo From Dreams

Image

Logo From Dreams has been around for a while which means there are a lot of logo designs there for inspiration. They feature a new logo design every day handpicked by the sites owner, Sinisa. They also feature a logo of the month and year.

Identity Archives

Image

This sit is a bit different in terms of functionality as it is mainly driven by search and key words but it is still very worthy.

Logo Faves

Image

Logo Faves is just another Logo Design Gallery, nothing special in my opinion as a lot of the logos here are already featured on Logo Pond and the other galleries out there but there are a few gems in there and it is still a worthy site.

Logo Sauce

Image

Logo Sauce is place where users can showcase their logos however I have to say that the quality here is not as good as the sites suggested above – a lot of it is rubbish left over from design contests. On the upside there is a large range of logos to browse through… though sorting the good from the bad is the hard part.

Even more logo design inspiration galleries:

Have I missed one? Let us know in the comments. What are your favourite galleries?
