Logos are so tough.  Every group needs a logo to hang its hat on.  You need it for t-shirts and mugs and business cards and letter head.  There are hundreds of companies out there, as well as freelance designers who will make a logo pretty inexpensively.  However, only some logos get the status of “awesome”.  But is it the logo or the brand equity?  Is McDonalds a great logo or have we just been inundated with it for our whole lives.  It’s certainly better than the Burger King one.  How much did that contribute to the downfall of Burger King?

How do you create a great logo?  Is it simple or catchy?  How do you know a great logo when you see it?  Check out these logo collections.  Which ones really jump out at you?

There are so many more.  Just Google images search for Logos.  I see so many.  I wonder how many logos have been created in the last 10 years.
