20 Examples of Handwritten Logos to Inspire

20-handwritten-logos

There is nothing like a well designed logo based on handwriting. I think the reason for that is, and I agree with Brian Yerkes who says: “Handwritten logos can give that personal touch to a huge corporation like Disney”, or for that matter Coca Cola. But again handwritten logos are not suitable for all businesses or companies.

Handwritten logos present two directions. The first is to use a font as is and the second option is to convert the font to lines and modify the font to create a desired style or feeling. One of the biggest challenges I want to emphasize in handwritten logos, is that of balance. The 20 examples I have chosen here were because of their perfect balance. See if you agree with me.

I want to start with a big name in this genre and a definite inspiration to me, Sergey Shapiro. Sergey is an independent graphic designer and specializes in calligraphy and lettering design. He says that he loves his job and does it with all his heart and with passion. For example, look at his logo:

I think it is really something unique. I scrolled through a few of his designs and what jumps out at first was the perfect balance. I also featured a few other examples from other designers. Enjoy! and let me know what you think.
