Logo Designs for The Travel Network

We recently created some very nice logo designs for the travel network.

They asked us to create three logo designs for some of their up and coming websites focusing on travel, hostels and bed and breakfasts. Each logo has its own unique characteristics thereby helping to distinguish a brand for each website and offering.

Bed and breakfasts logo design was created to highlight the standard available for accomodation booking on this website. The logo is refined and classic in style. Visually it works well with its surroundings.

The two hostel logos promote websites that offer a booking system for backpackers and people looking for hostel accomodation. Emphasis was placed on simplicity to get the message across. One logo makes use of a very attractive lime green to attract attention and the stylized design works well in combination with this colour.

Logo Design for Carralero Insurance

Chew Design recently designed the logo for Carralero Insurance in Texas.

The design is bright and colourful with use of green red and black.

The company provide a range of insurance services.

The vibrant design adds a professional and easily recognisable identity to all promotional literature for the company.

It also works well on the website design.

The idea was to design a logo that would be instantly recognisable to customers using the service and attractive to new potential customers.

The logo design combines a simplicity with a styled font to successfully get its message across.

+Logos that are just Twitterific!

twittericons1.jpg

The Twitter bird logo is one fine example of how logo design can change over time.  Sure, there’s the standard icon set available.  Download the vectors, grab the Png file and resize the image for your blog or website.  But it seems that Twitter’s faithful just aren’t content with this. Many have decided to produce Twitter icons and logos themselves.

One Logo, Many Variations
I have never seen so many different variations of one logo!  They are all different and unique to the user that created them.  Search google for a twitter bird icon for example and you are bound to come across a large number of different looking tweeting birds which are free to use anywhere you like.

It seems the general public have fallen in love with twitter and as a consequence they have a deep love for the symbol of this relatively new website.  Twitter is now well known for changing the face of social networking.  Information is more personal.  It is fast, intuitive and sometimes even silly.  Could Twitter also be responsible for a change in attitude towards logo design?

Is the attitude towards Logo Design changing?
We all know and respect the logo design formula.  You visit a well respected website which has been carefully branded to the hilt.  You accept that brand and learn pretty quickly to recognize it next time you see it.  I guess that’s why it is there in the first place.  But what happens when, next time you visit that site the branding has been changed or you decide to change it yourself?

That’s exactly what has happened over at Twitter.com.  Visit numerous blogs which conjure up Twitter updates from different people.  You will very rarely come across a similar logo or icon branding this piece of hearty news.  The rules of the Internet are being rewritten yet again and it seems that Logo design isn’t immune to such changes.

I do wonder if this craze will catch on.  Imagine people willingly redesigning such famous branded websites such as BBC News, the Guardian or even Facebook.  Would it matter?  What’s the value in having a consistent brand?  Recognition for one.  Check out these weird and wonderful  twitter Logo creations!

+London Logos Branding a City

london-olympics-logo.jpg

London Olympics
Look at the new Olympics logo for London!  Its brash, its pink and some might say its all over the place! Most importantly though, its different and this is perhaps what counts. It has a distinct eighties electric feel to it and its definitely become controversial. When it was released many were in outcry demanding its demise but I reckon we should give this little gem time to mature and grow on us. Will we look back at this decade in years to come and point to it as a classic design? Anything is possible!

Museum of London
Patterns are eye catching and hold your attention. Expect to see more of these types of logos in the future. The Museum of London have a new logo featuring patterns overlapping and full of vivid colour. There is a seventies retro feel here and it definitely makes the viewer take notice.  This is perhaps, like the London Olympics logo a new modern design which may take a few years to be appreciated by the public.  In essence its not your typical museum type logo.  This is a strength and not a weakness.  It allows the logo and consequently the Museum of London brand to stand out from the crowd in a creative way.  It would be interesting to compare visitor figures to the logo and its introduction within the museum brand.  Perhaps there is a report on that somewhere.

Think London
A logo with a lot happening in it!  It’s a tourism logo intended to promote London on the international stage.  Johnson Banks designed it.  Heres what they have to say..” Think London’s job is to sell the city as a location to the world’s businesses. ‘Forget Paris, Berlin, Beijing, set up in London instead’ is their pitch. So how do you distill all that London has to offer into 1 symbol? Well, you don’t. You use 45. We twisted the famous skyline 180 degrees into a reflection and made a new skyline out of all the other factors that would help you choose the city.”

We have seen this idea before and many will argue its now fast becoming over used.  City skylines rearranged into a cool looking graphic so that people will notice it and say “wow”.  The concept kind of works here though.  Its in cool blue and it looks cool.  The reflection shows elements from the real London skyline, whereas the upper skyline contains the new symbols.  To the potential traveler thinking about visiting London I think it works.  Its full of fun and things to do, just like London.  Its attractive,  eye catching and real.

London Underground
A timeless symbol of quality.  Designed by Edward Johnston, in 1918, this logo needs no introduction.  It’s a roundel, usually red with the name of the appropriate station placed along the middle.  The logo design has become an international symbol for London. And one many Londoners are proud of.  It can be found in all the tube stations throughout the city and beyond.  The logo is so famous it has been used for other things as well.  There are many references in culture to the logo, including parodies of it using different station-names, particularly in London advertisements for unrelated products & services. I would guess that this logo is going to be around for a long time to come.
