A dollop of whipped cream or icing is popular with bakery designs, but it’s not just about the dollop. Onlydeestudio uses both cursive and block letters, creating a different emphasis on each identifying word. Add a little icing, wrap it in a pretty case and this design is ready to go.

JonZander Photography



This design shows that a photography company does not always have to incorporate a camera or lens to make a bold statement. Designer maxthing uses the J and Z to create what looks like hands making a camera frame shape.



Integrating an icon with the wordmark is a simple and effective way to create a memorable logo. Sm.art’s design is bold and to-the-point, with the right choice of soft colors for this team of mobile app and games developers.
