The site stands out from others due to its advice focused on the business and administrative side of logo design — like efficiency tools, tips for communicating with clients and ways to upsell your services.

This logo inspiration gallery also hosts an active design community along with resources for graphic designers. It allows users to submit their own logos and receive feedback from the community. The highest-rated logos of the month and of all time are displayed on the front page, along with the latest submissions.
Creative Bloq’s blog provides updates on the latest in logo news — blunders, changes, rebrandings and logo retrospectives. This logo design blog is probably one of the more writing-heavy sites on this list. It is an outstanding resource for deeper dives into logo news or history.
You can browse the blog by articles tagged “logos” or check out the rest of their site for similar content written about a broader scope of design topics.

The LogoCore blog hosts design resources and a few step-by-step tutorials on how to design simple logos using vector graphics. These tutorials are aimed at beginner logo designers. While they were written with Adobe Illustrator in mind, they should translate fairly well to any vector-based graphics editor.

JUST Creative is the award-winning branding agency of designer Jacob Cass. Its logo design blog features articles on topics like new design trends, common symbolic elements in logos, online course lists and more.

This sharp logo design gallery also hosts its own logo-centric blog. The LogoLounge blog focuses more on logo news than other logos on this list, so it will probably be of more interest to advanced designers who want to keep up with the industry.
LogoLounge has also published a logo trend report every year since 2003. This resource is pretty incredible for designers, especially younger ones who may be less familiar with logos from the report’s earlier years. If you want to get a sense of logo trends’ shifts and developments over the past two decades, LogoLounge is the place to start.
BP&O is the blog of British graphic designer and writer Richard Baird. It might be better described as a branding blog, but Baird’s design sensibilities and carefulness in describing how brands get built make it an excellent resource for anyone involved in branding — logo designers especially. The articles focus more on the conceptual side and will probably be most useful to experienced designers. But any logo designer will find Baird’s blog illuminating in one way or another.
Baird also curates the LogoArchive project, which collects and showcases logo design from the mid-to-late 20th century.
Graphic designer Fabien Barral curates the Mr CUP blog. It contains images of branding, packaging and logos — a valuable resource for logo designers. The logos and packing highlighted here are more intricate and baroque than the cleaner fare of most inspiration blogs, which some designers may find useful. The Mr CUP blog also hosts useful design round-ups, like an article dedicated to Barral’s favorite fonts. This blog doesn’t feature much technical discussion, which makes it good for logo designers of all skill levels.
This logo and branding gallery provides inspiration to graphic designers of all kinds and skill levels. It occasionally links to interesting branding- and logo-related articles.
