January: Bread & Breakfast
Bread & Breakfast is a coffee shop / bakery that serves breakfast all day (after all – it is the most important meal!), and sells bread and baked goods. The aim was to create a logo that will combine the two elements of business (bakery and coffee shop) without creating an overload of visuals. The positive/negative design of the coffee cup and the bread image that is created by the coffee itself, along with the use of light blue and brown, create the desired combination that we set out to design.

April: The New Record
May: Edge Board
“Edgeboard are handmade chopping boards from the Northern Beaches in NSW that possess a special feature; an edge which you use to slide off the chopped food against. They use a natural anti-bacterial wood sourced form the Byron Shire.
“The identity is based on the board’s special feature, the edge, and the brand comes to life using the edge in any any application. A simple, structured logo is used in combination with textured and environmentally friendly stocks.” See in use.

June: Fashion Law Institute
Fashion Law Institute is a new center at Fordham Law School in New York that will train and advise designers, lawyers and design students in areas of the law affecting the fashion industry.
July: Fine Cell Work
As surprising as it seems, thanks to the charity Fine Cell Work, hundreds of UK prison inmates fill their hours sewing cushions and quilts. They earn money, gain skills and create a real sense of community. The logo we created for Fine Cell Work came from the contrasting worlds of UK prison life and needlework.

Hi there! fantastic compilation!!!!
JUST A HINT: peru rebranding was made by FutureBrand Buenos Aires, not UK.
Thanks Juanelo, just corrected that.
Edgeboard gets my vote. It subtley incorporates everything, the edge the letters of Edge and Board, with a 3-dimensionality.
Absolutely love the Fashion Law Institute Logo. It’s smart and stylish, which I would imagine is a good thing to be in the fashion world.
Hi There. Great logos, great website! Very inspirational.
Just a small comment: The Bread & Breakfast logo is presented as Bed & Breakfast, which takes the Bread out of the name…
Thanks for those corrections Juanelo and Sigal.
As a former advertising sales executive for the newsprint industry, I tend to look at how the logo will translate in the newspaper competing with all the other copy. Logos are treated with the highest respect and they are placed in an advertisement ‘as is’, without any alterations.
Thin lines in the graphics and name tend to disappear unless it is surrounded by white space, and that can cost your client some serious money in any print advertising. ‘Fine Cell Work’, ‘City Tech’ and ‘Bread and Breakfast’ are perfect examples of logos could possibly experience problems in print advertising and outdoor signage as well.
Although newsprint is becoming less relevant, the principles of good design still apply. A good design should be able to adapt to any situation, after all it is the company’s signature.
I think Fork & Knife logo the BEST. And thanks Jacob.
I love the Radio logo and the City Tech logo. Really cool stuff.
The Bread & Breakfast logo is smart and simple, great design is based on the ability to Merge content by simplicity.
Great to get creative juices flowing!
I voted for City Tech. The icon is so clever and beautifully rendered, but I think the type setting is what really put that one over the top for me. Creative, distinct and just gorgeous!
Because it’s just so playfull 🙂
I like the brands where what you can see in the logo is not what you see on the image. I mean (and PLEASE excuse my lack of english): if my brand is called CAKE and I use an image of a cake, despite the awsome way of showing it, whats the point of having the image? Whats carrying? Leaving behind the (very important) graphic aspects of that particular cake… its still a cake… and it ends there.
Again (damn its hard to say this in another language) the image of that cake could be great and all, but i preffer those brands where is the user who completes the sense, or when what is shown is a part (or any retorical technic) and not everything. Anyway, i think its clever when we represent things that are not directly on the verbal part of the brand. Like the RADIO one… but without the antena. I think that effect, the interference effect, is powerfull enough.
anyway, thats just the way I see it.
Great job jacob!!!!!
Absolutely love the logo for Bread and Breakfast, though Fashion Law Institute is a close second.
I just love the Fast Eddie’s logo!
Oh yes this is fun. I’ll go for the fork and knife. The design is simple but it says a lot. I love the humor of the design.
Massive LIKE. Particularly Fashion Law, Fork & Knife and Edge Board.
Great set of logos, tough choice picking a favourite – ended up going for Fork & Knife. But Bread & Breakfast, Fashion Law Institute and Fine Cell Work were close seconds.
I think the Bright Carrot is by far the best logo. That was genius to use a light blub in place of the carrot and it really catches your attention. Another great design I saw recently was by a FIDM student who was inspired by Coca-Cola to design beautiful flowers and a parrot carrying the bottle. Pretty impressive!
Voting for Bread and Breakfast
Love the Bright Carrot logo! Clever and creative without being overly playful or cartoonish.
love the fork and knife, stylized elegance and simplified.
My favorite is Peru. Maybe because I have seen advertisement featuring this logo, it was very cool that I had a feeling that next summer I should visit Peru.
bright carrot gets my vote. Very clever!
I couldn’t decide! I think all of them are amazing. If I had to choose, I would go for Fine Cell Work.
The Fork & Knife logo definitely does it for me because it is clever.
Wow, the results are quite surprising! Fine Cell Work gets my vote, it just looks much more stylised, balanced and high-end than any of the others.
Peru logo is really clever
All these logos are simply great and have no comparision.
I love the Fast Eddies Barber is beautiful
