Logo Design This Week (2.1)

Welcome to the new year! This week is a special double volume of the news in the world of logo design. We’ve kept our eye out for anything and everything related to the world of logo design, and this is what caught our eye:

We linked to this story a couple of weeks ago, but here’s the follow-up. After spending more than $110,000 on a new logo, Colorado Springs went back to the drawing board and asked several local designers to take a stab at the project. Here are the results.

Touch Arcade LogoTouch Arcade gets a new logo in order to create its own distinctive branding. They plan to use it for their site, apps, and more.

No Olympic logo for the Edinburgh airport. Hey, why not try Holyrood Palace? More from Scotland—a contest to design a logo for the National Food and Drink Conference.

Sharp Anniversary LogoElectronic company, Sharp, introduced a logo to commemorate their 100th anniversary. They put together this helpful graphic so we “get” it. See it full size at the link.

But 100 years is nothing compared to the British Jeweler’s Association’s 125 years, for which it also got a new logo.

Mediabistro redesigned its logo and reworked its webpage design. Here’s an interview with Skipper Chong Warson, the creative director on the project.

Pole Pedal Paddle LogoPole, Pedal, Paddle unveiled this year’s logo. Though honestly, this looks a bit more like a poster than a logo. What ever happened to simplicity in logo design?

We love a good logo (and signage) controversy. Favorite quote: “I’m going to blow my top!” But this one is even bigger—The Rose Bowl Logo!

A Lancaster, Pennsylvania college logo is the inspiration for a $61 million clothing line.

Belinda Lanks of Design.co shows off her favorite logo and branding projects of the past year. Some really good stuff here.

Scoop Jackson wants the L.A. Clippers to change their logo. I guess we do too.

Drum and Feather LogoThere was a bit of a dust-up at the University of Utah about their use of the drum and feather logo and the use of the Utes’ name for their mascot. But it seems either there was nothing to the story, or the school backed down when fans disagreed.

More new logos for the US Poultry and Egg Association, National Underwriter Life and Health, The Golden Isles Convention and Visitors Bureau,  and the Marblehead Festival of Arts.

Finally, the feel-good logo story of the week: A girl designs a new logo and wins an iPad for her autistic brother.
