Nouveau Theatre de Montreuil

Nation: France
Designer(s): Delphine Cordier and Aurélie Gasche
Client: Nouveau Theatre de Montreuil
Description: This logo was created in November 2007 for the City of Montreuil’s new theatre “le Nouveau Theatre de Montreuil” (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.

    I love the Restaurant Mathias Dahlgren Logo it looks great and still is a classy look.

  2. Brett Danielsen Says:

    Hou+Partnere’s logo uses negative space so nicely and effectively, love it.

  3. Cristhian Bedon Says:

    The logos “Twins” and “8 Business Lounge” are a great work of creativity. Like how they used the numbers.

  4. Preston Lee Says:

    The airplane snowflake one was by far my favourite. Just curious about the Restaurant Mathias Dahlgren logo…do you feel like it follows the basic rules of logo design similar to the ones you spelled out in “Why logo design does not cost 5 dollars?” on JCD?

  5. Jacob Cass Says:

    Logos don’t have to follow “rules” so to speak… of course there are certain guidelines however different applications and scenarios can use different techniques, effects, etc.

  6. DVQ Says:

    Those are some nice logo, especially the Just Creative Design one ;)

  7. Dustlonely Media|?????? Says:

    some nice logo with simple ideas. great

  8. Preston Lee Says:

    I know what you mean and I totally agree. Plus don’t get me wrong, I love the concept. Just trying to figure out how I would handle it if I were to screen print, embroider, photocopy, just wondering about functionality. Great logo though. thanks.

  9. venky Says:

    38 south sounds good

  10. Jackson Says:

    I think the airline snowflake is the best. You look 1 time and see the snowflake on the blue background, which in itself is eyecatching. The 2nd time you look your eye wanders around each plane and you realize what they are.

  11. Driton Says:
