Creating the perfect logo takes a lot of time and skill. It also takes practice – and one of the things that I find really interesting are the sketches of a logo before it’s been finalised. There are some extraordinarily talented designers out there who are as skilled at sketching out a logo as they are at creating one in Photoshop, and I wanted to bring together a post that showed off some of the best examples of their work.
I’ve always had an admiration for illustrators, and being able to combine calligraphy and beautiful lettering with logo design on paper is something that I’d love to be able to do myself. I hope you find these logo sketches inspirational, and that they get you thinking about practicing sketching too. As always, if you know of any other examples that deserve some recognition, I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
