Late at night, currently surfing the Web for a logo for a client project. One of the best parts of my process, exploring and get inspired. It might sound silly but letting my mind free while surfing does make a difference instead of trying to find something. I stumbled across the work of Shaivalini Kumar and I can't help to enjoy her logofolio from this year. It's full of great pieces and I like how she can co-exist a neutral solid colour with shadows. Hope you will enjoy! About Shaivalini Kumar Shaivalini is a designer currently based Los Angeles and she's focusing her work into Art Direction, Graphic Design, Ilustration and Typography. You should definitely check out her work on Instagram. For more information: http://www.supernovadesign.net.

Designing logos is an endeavor because a good logo or visual identity has to represent a product or a service with a great level of simplicity. Differently than icon design, logos require a level of differentiation in the form and there's the balance between typography and forms. Everything must be optically balanced and easy to reproduce in different medias and sizes.

Designing visual identities and logos is all about simplifying the form until you get the basic shapes that represent the form. There are several ways to do that, and it's pretty common to try to create basic geometries to simplify an icon to it's purest form. Tom Anders Watkins has a really cool project illustrating this process called Animal Logos Vol 1. A predominantly personal project, exploring ways in which logos can be formed using only basic shapes and minimalist techniques. For more information visit https://www.behance.net/tomanders

In planning my itinerary for an upcoming trip to Portland, Oregon I discovered the city is home to more than 60 microbreweries. That's more than any other city in the world including Cologne, Germany. Brewpubs are scattered all about the city, some in renovated cinemas, others in historical landmark buildings that were otherwise destined for destruction. To pay homage to the beer capital of the world I've put together a quick gallery featuring logos of some of Portland's most notable brewers. We hope you find inspiration in some of the designs and the creative naming good fodder for discussion. Of course if you have any tips or must-see spots while in Portland please feel free to share in the comments section.
We keep going through our weekly journey checking out great logos! We're thinking ahead and we want to find new topics, good ones, to share with you guys. Last week we had a The Office fan-post featuring logos with bears, beets and Battlestar Galactica (only the strong will understand), and today we're featuring logos with cutlery! Back in 2010 we had our first post on cutlery, and it felt right to make a new one. Every week we search through our favorite galleries: Logopond and Dribbble. Both are a great communities for designers everywhere. Also, if you you'd like to suggest ideas for the next subjects, please, tell me by sending me sending me a tweet: @paulogabriel. Cheers! ;)
The most amazing thing about being a designer today is the possibility to create, distribute and get feedback on projects very quickly. That's a huge motivator, especially for personal projects where we have much more creative freedom to explore and learn. Case in point, the VARIG Logo Redesign from Leo Porto. VARIG was the biggest and most important airline in Brazil from the 60s to the 90s. It was founded in 1927 in Porto Alegre, my hometown. I remember drawing its logo in my school books and imagining flying with them. The logo was very classy, a golden compass. In the early 2000 the company declared bankruptcy and was acquired by another airline. Today we carry only the memories of the golden age of aviation. Leo Porto decided to create his own redesign of the brand and he does a great job of bringing back the style of the mid-century modern era. Varig Logos VARIG was the first airline founded in Brazil, in 1927. From 1965 until 1990 it was Brazil’s leading and almost only international airline. In 2005, Varig went into judicial reorganisation, and in 2006 it was split into two companies. Varig was my favorite airline until it closed for good in 2007. If Varig were to come back as the number one airline in Brazil like it once was, it would have to go through a complete rembranding. The following pages cointain my view of what Varig should look like if it came back to the market. Rebrand For more information visit http://leoporto.com/
