    I do love typograhpy – and logos like this: I do love even more!

  • Magento Themes, January 18, 2011

    This is what I asked my designers to do for my new website, probably if I had read this post before couple of weeks, I would have had the same kind of logo.

  • Web Design Hull, January 18, 2011

    Nice collection, my favourite is Type Division… thanks for sharing!

  • Jahangir Hussain, January 18, 2011

    Awesome logos, I can’t decide which logo to pick, but still i will give 10/10 to Tony Hamaway log, this logo is simply the best and very simple logo. Nice share.

    I love the type base logo of web&co http://webandco.com . Its simple put powerful.

  • Christine, January 18, 2011

    You should have A&E logo there. I find it to be a very smart use of negative and positive space.

  • Designer, January 18, 2011

    Great collection.

    Cobode really stands out for me as it’s has quite a different execution.

  • Lovin’ this list of type-based logos. Is this a complete one? True indeed that at times, the most simple, memorable, and effective logos consist of only text. Keep ‘em coming.

    • Vandelay Website Design, January 19, 2011

      It’s definitely not a complete list, just a sampling. There are lots more that could be included.

  • Urban Media Web Design, February 3, 2011

    Nice collection. I like Noodle Bar and Pixelhaven best :)

  • Erin, May 2, 2011

    It seems like clients are often hesitant to go with purely typographic logos. This post is a great reference for showing clients that when done well, typographic logos can be just as effective as a graphic mark logo. A couple other classic logos that prove this point are the FedEx, CocaCola, and IBM logo.

  • Sujoy Sengupta, August 26, 2011

    Great Collection of logos.
