Logo design is a fantastically creative area, with so much diversity in style and execution. There are so many factors to be considered when designing a logo including how it will be used; what audience it is meant to appeal to; does it work across all media in both colour and black and white; does it fit with a companies’ overall identity in terms of feel and concept; is it instantly recognisable – the list goes on!
There are a number of good website which help to provide inspiration, news and latest trends as well as design processes for logo design and showcase the best in logo design. Logo Design Love is one of those websites.
Logo Design Love is a website (and book) devoted to the design of logos and brand identities. Launched as a small side project in 2008 by David Airey, the site’s usually updated once or twice a week with designs, opinions, and resources.

I have included more links to logo inspiration at the foot of this post.
