When purpose is clear.
When focus is understood.
When brand strategy is created.
When it’s finally time to communicate, a good logo (graphic mark) is one of the tools used to exemplify the brand message.
Here are six nicely done logos that you may not have seen before (collected on linkes.com.) All of these tastefully employ the use of negative space.
WINEFOREST wine bottles stand with trees in the forest.
Catch Me! features a falling person, and a helping hand ready to catch — both in the same graphic.
Airtime pictures a clock with an airplane formed by clock hands.
A big block of cool pink backgrounds Web Girls cursor and dot stick figure in a dress.
Night Golf cleverly incorporates a golfball for its moon design.
And finally, as you look at the Black Cat logo, it looks back with feline eyes.

The now famous story of the FedEx logo.
