FREE LOGO DESIGN, CAN IT BE TRUE?

Just today I came across a crazy concept that I never what have thought of being a graphic designer:

“free logo design”

There are sources on the internet where you can obtain free logo design for your projects and I like to discuss one in particular. The site is called logodust.com, founded by fairpixels who has decided to take all the unused logos in their memory banks and offer it for free. The site was created to give their unused creative logo design to those who are kicking off their project but have a limited budget.

The website is fairly simple, consisting of a mission statement, 38 logos and even an option for other designs to submit their unused creative logo design.  The logos are very well presented and extremely easy to download.

PROS

Well the pros should be pretty obvious, they are designed by a professional graphic designer,there are several to choose from, the designs hold true to the simplicity in logo design motto and there are logo designs added every Tuesday.

CONS

There is really only one cons, anyone can download and used these creative logo designs. Which means there will be no uniqueness, any logo design chosen from the site can and will be used by other start-ups or projects and you lose one of the most important aspects of a logo to stand out from the rest.

IN CONCLUSION

I found the concept of free logo design intriguing and a source of unused creative logo design to be quite useful for someone on a budget. In my opinion this would work better if it was a one-time download, sort of a first come first serve, the logo design found one home to remain a unique logo design and not risk landing in the over used logos mess. I too have a mess of unused logos on my hard drive that still begs from a home and after all they may never find it.

CHECK THE SITE OUT AND LET  ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT FREE LOGO DESIGN? DO YOU KNOW OF ANY OTHER SOURCES FOR FREE LOGO DESIGNS WORTH MENTIONING?

    It’s nice to get something for free and if your on a low budget a free logo design might help. However, I can see multiple people downloading and using the same logo which could cause problems with uniqueness.

    I see logos and simplicity has been inspired by this concept of free logos and started offer free logo designs in the freebies section. I also see this free designs are first come first serve which means they are meant to represent one business or individual which solves the problem with uniqueness. This means it can truly become someones long term logo!

    I like that you found a concept you believed in, found a problem with it and move to solve it.
