Monday Freebie: Vector Logos for Designers
An excellent source of dietary fibre… er, I mean logos!
Any graphic designer will tell you that getting a decent copy of a corporate logo from their customers can be like pulling teeth. Likewise, when its time to design a new logo for a client, inspiration can be hard to come by. Or, maybe you’re a budding culture-jammer looking for some major corporate logos to alter in bizarre and humorous ways. Whatever your passion, seeklogo.com is your one stop resource for free, high-quality vector logos which are resolution independent and can be scaled to any size. This site has thousands of logos from major corporations around the world as well as a gaggle of generic logos and safety symbols.
I came across the site a few weeks back when I needed a graphic for my posting about Adobe Acrobat critical security flaws. I was able to create a simple, yet effective logo-jam by combining a Biohazard symbol with an Adobe PDF icon, both of which were easily found on seeklogo.com. I opened both files in Adobe Illustrator, selected the Acrobat swirl in the PDF icon graphic, deleted it and replaced it with the Biohazard symbol… DONE (though I’m sure Adobe doesn’t appreciate it)!
Anyways, have some fun… and if any of you create some logo-jams, send them in, we’ll post them here.
