Designing logos is painful, frustrating and occasionally quite rewarding. Here are several I don’t mind showing. Aside from the constantly recurring circle, half-circle and oval themes, I think they show a bit of diversity. And many tend toward a retro look. I guess that’s a kind of specialty.

Mixed in are a few lost souls: logos I loved, but the clients—not so much. Sometimes it was differing taste, sometimes the relationship went south, other times the project just never saw the light of day.
