This post collects 30+ different colourful logos that make use of a CMYK colour palette to some degree or other. Check it out, and try to note the differences and similarities that run through the logos in this collection.
Alright everybody, time for some inspiration. Today, I have collected over 30 different logo designs that are clearly inspired by the concept of CMYK colour. Most of these logos just use a combination of these colours, but some actually make more use of a fuller colour spectrum in which Cyan, Magenta and Yellow are all prominently visible (though one logo uses red instead of magenta).
Obviously, these logos are also mostly associated with and/or from companies (or imagined companies) somehow related with the print and design industries, whether that be through inks, actual printing or just colour and design in general.
You will also notice that there are four logos for a company called “CMYK Print Services”. There are actually a TON of different logos with this same name out there, so I don’t know if there was a contest or some spec work going on… regardless I only chose four of what I felt were the strongest of that crop.
Anyhow, let’s take a look. Here are the logos, in no particular order (except I saved on of my very favorites for last).
Now it’s your turn to talk! Which ones were your favorites? Or do you just cringe at the use of CMYK in logos? Do you think that this colour concept has any validity anymore, even in the colour-saturated print and ink industries? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one!Post A Comment
