Abode group logo designs


The Abode group started out as Abode Alarms, then moved into antennas so we created a logo that matched the original.

It’s nice and simple. The colours are strong, it works well  in newspaper print, and looks good on the company shirts, so it does the job nicely.


Designers who blog


This is a little off topic for me, but I found this website, and thought it was interesting.

Designers who blog

I like this site because it has a lot of great links to other design blogs. It’s a blog about blogs :-) You can read more about it on the about designers who blog page.

The site links to great articles in a variety of design related blogs. Some of the topics and links include:

…and heaps more. Check it out at Designers who blog.

Do you know of any other good graphic design or logo design related blogs?

Let us know about them, perhaps you have you own. Leave a comment!


5 nice logo design portfolios

These protfolios grabbed my attention as I was browsing the net. There is a good combination of logo design, print design and web design here.


Attutude Design’s brand identity portfolio



Studio 7 are pretty impressive all round. I’ve always been a fan of their stuff. Check uot their logo design portfolio here.



These guys surprised me. Just goes to show that you can’t judge a logo designer by his website ;-) Best Company Logo portfolio



You need to scroll down a fair way when you get to this page. Some nice logos. Click here.



This is a flash website, so I can’t give you a link directly to the logo design portfolio, so you need to navigate to the “portfolio” section using the button I have highlighted in the graphic above. It’s a very nic portfolio. Definitely worth a look. Wright Graphics logo design portfiolio.

Do you have a logo design portfolio that you think we should link to? Drop us a comment and we’ll check it out.


Manly Beach House and friends


The Manly Backpackers, Manly Beach House and Manly Guest House used to be part of the same group, and needed a set of logos to tie all the properties together.

I took photos of the front of each of the properties and traced them, then coloured them using the actual colours of the buildings, (obviously stylised a bit), and created a set of logos that work together and individually.


Northside Water :: logo design


Northside Water was a cool little company run by a very nice lady. I did my very best to create a logo that reflected the vibe of the business. Mr Bottle head eventually emerged after a lot of corporate looking typographic concepts that just didn’t look right…

This is one of my all time favourite designs. There are a lot of other little graphics that I will dig out for another post later on down the track.

Northside water was a small fish in a big pond,… which got eaten by a bigger fish, which in turn was eaten by an even bigger fish and now we get our water bills from CocaCola, (or Never fail as they call that branch).
