I’m a big fan of logos that stand out – and one way to make a logo noticeably different is to spend time creating custom lettering for the design. Instead of relying on the same pool of typefaces that every other designer has access to, custom lettering allows you to create a logo that is truly unique and that has it’s own personality and style built in. Whether it’s creating your own font just for that design, or trying your hand at calligraphy – designing the lettering for the logo can take time and a lot of patience, but when it’s done right the results can be absolutely stunning.
To help give you some inspiration, I’ve brought together some of my favourite logo designs that all make use of custom lettering. I love how each of these designs stands out as having it’s own personal style, and as a result it gives the brand a one-of-a-kind feel. Hopefully this collection will get you thinking about how to add some creative custom lettering to your next logo design.
Which of these logo designs is your favourite? Do you know of any others that you’d like to add? I’d love to hear what you have to say in the comments!
