Every designer loves a foray into the minimalist — even if you make your bread and butter designing wildly grungy logos for metal bands using absurd, busy fonts and lots of black and red (not that this is a common niche for designers who do want to pay their bills). Minimalism is about stripping away everything but the absolutely necessary, and still making it look great. Here are thirty logos that do a great job of achieving the most with the least.

Each of these logos uses few colors, fonts, and even lines, but they all look great — and are all the more effective for it. Think about it: the less there is to a logo, the less the viewer has to remember for it to be embedded in their minds. Just make sure that the concept is strong in the first place — a weak idea simplified further doesn’t make it any stronger!
