Karoline Tynes Designs 60 Original Logos in 60 Days

Mighty Deals Web Banner for Design Soak

Here is a selection of original logo designs by Norwegian graphic designer, Karoline Tynes, who states: ‘Here’s some of the logos I made during my 60 days of logos-challenge. My goal for this challenge was to develop and promote myself as a designer. The rules were to use a maximum of 60 minutes on each logo, so it’s the idea that counts.’ As a logo designer myself, I can appreciate how much work goes into a logo design. If you take into account the actual formation of the idea, to colour choices, graphic style and typographic choice, I think Tynes has produced some excellent work in little 60-minute slots! I love the ‘Little Knits’ logo — what’s your favourite?

By the way – here’s a rare promo on my part – if you’re in need of a church logotype, please complete my Church Logo Design form (external link). Thanks!
