Logo is a company’s face. Wherever the company wishes to represent, its logo speaks volumes about it. It is not necessary to have a very complex, gaudy logo; simple logos manage to outclass the most complex logos at times, the best case being Intel. Designing a logo is not less than an art, for the goal is to create something that entices people, speaks about the company in volumes and represents the company in a positive manner. There have been times when a company has lost its customers only because the logo had failed to impress the clients.
Most of the logo designs have alphabets, which range from the company’s complete name in colors or beautiful calligraphy to the company’s abbreviation. One of the most difficult types of logos that can be designed is the symmetrical logo. This is because getting a beautiful symmetry is not only difficult to create, but also difficult to imagine. No wonder, not many companies have symmetrical logos.
Following are ten excellent examples of what a good symmetric logo should look like. One should understand while seeing these logos that it is not the difficulty level or complexity that makes these logos so beautiful; it is the message they manage to carry along with them that make them appear apart from others.
1. Hugo Mavis
If a company wants to display an aura of creativity, elegance and class, it should go for a logo like Hugo Mavis. Using simple colors – black, white and gray – while taking help of flawless art, the company’s logo is an excellent example of top-notch logo. The background and the foreground fits well together, and only a man with a sharp eye can see the symmetry in the design.
On first look, Mixedpome’s logo appears to be too easy – silhouettes of two men nested in three layers of apple – but on a close look, one cannot deny that the logo appeals the creative and mentoring side of the company – which Mixedpome actually is. The colors are elemental – red, orange and yellow – set against a darker background. The symmetry is simple, but it takes more of inspiration and imagination to land up with this classy logo.
What makes Matchwing’s logo so different is the simplicity and concept. By the application of circles and lines – along with apt usage of colors – the logo does not fail to impress the customers and company personnel. The logo is good enough to stand alone without its impressive background, but it is the background that adds more elegance to it. The designer has cleverly hidden the symmetry in the background by clever application of colors.
The logo speaks for itself. The complexity, perfection and clever implementation of symmetry make this logo an attractive one for an onlooker. What makes this logo even better is its independence from the background. The jaguar’s lifelike head peeping out of the greens displays the company’s visionary limits and the designer’s class.
The logo very cleverly uses crescent moons to make the hens without distorting the birds’ identity. The application of symmetry gives this cute logo an enhanced look. But the main thing is: the logo manages to highlight “Poultry“ Henland’s area of functioning.
6. Giardini Dopo la Pioggia
The logo found its way in the top ten not because of its beauty or complexity, but because of the cleverness with which, the designer managed to use symmetry to achieve this difficult-looking logo. The logo is perfect, beautiful and a good example of how one can reduce complexity of a design by application of symmetry. Except for the peacock’s head, everything is in perfect symmetry, enhancing the logo’s beauty.
7. Blu Leone
If there is a logo that is beautiful in its detailed form, Blu Leone’s logo hits the mark. Using English lions as the inspiration, the logo achieved is beautiful, intricate and detailed that cannot be missed on company seals, doors, products and other things.
Using the classic Spanish shield for the center design, Conquistador’s logo is classy, with a royal touch. The look of the logo gives the onlooker an idea about the classy and royal quality of the restaurant’s dishes.
Paperpassion’s logo is the best at displaying emotion the company has for its product and services: Love and Passion. The clean arrangement of cut out sheets to make a heart in center is enhanced the cool transition of colors the designer chose to apply. A cool-looking logo is worth mentioning in the list.
10. Phoenix Agency
The logo may appear dark and difficult, but it is not so. The beauty with which the designer implemented the concept of symmetry is clearly evident here, and the choice of a single color makes the logo even more attractive. Phoenix Agency’s logo is a dark beauty of a logo one should look out for to take inspirations from.
