2. Logo Rank
Logo Rank is a unique logo testing tool, which uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyse your logo design. Developed by Brandmark.io, the site claims that the tool is trained on more than a million logo designs to provide accurate suggestions and tips. It ranks your logo based on:
- Overall design
To get started just upload your logo, the tool will do the magic!😉
It may take a while to show the results, but don’t worry it definitely works.
3. Free Minimal Logos
If you like a lot of white spaces in your design, then you should check out Free Minimal Logos for sure. You can find many simple, clean and minimal logo ideas. Use them as a starting point of your logo design, make some adjustments and add some creativity. Voila! You have designed your new minimal and sleek logo.
Logo inspiration doesn’t require fancy outlets, and if you are someone who loves simple format and has a truckload of inspiration, then Logospire is the Friend that you must BEFRIEND! Its infinite scrolling logo feed will inspire your logo ideas with out of the box designs.
The three main reasons I totally love this website are:
- Minimal Website
- Huge Catalog of logos
- Infinite Scroll Feed
5. Brand New by UnderConsideration LLC
Stay up-to-date with logo designs and redesigns of various business and products across all industries.
The website comprises news-worthy projects, each dedicated with meticulous, in-depth and comprehensive analysis. These are mostly clustered into articles based on size and the notoriety of the client or even based on the quality of the design.
One of my favourite things is its browse section. It has loads of options for the type of logo or mockup you want to search for. Choose one and it will bring out its catalog with all guns blazing. If you aren’t satisfied with the topics in the browse section you can be ultra-specific with your keyword search and it will just amaze you in each step.
And guess what? They even have a mailing list that you can opt-in for.
One thing I really like about Brand New is their comment section which has dozens of reviews of the logos. If you are someone who wants to upload your logos and get reviewed, you have an option to do so.
All in all a great logo resource website!
6. Logo design Analysis by Survey Monkey
Ahh, this site is quite unique. If you are someone who is a brand’s high-level officer or working under some high-end client and want to test the effectiveness of your logos before handing in your project- then Survey Monkey should be your go-to site!
So how do they work? Well, their data based surveys push your logo design concepts to their panellists to fetch reviews. You might feel well, they might be bots. Well no! Survey Monkey’s team shows pride with their robustness to bots and puts in a lot of effort to maintain it and brings in reviews in record time!
Here are some of the unique features that you will get if you opt-in:
- A/B testing
- Up to 15 criteria for testing
- Refined Targeting
- 200 national responses
- Word cloud of the most words used for reviewing your designs
- Ready-made results
- Simple and easy to interpret results, etc.
Now, this is a very good site, but before you jump in, I must tell you that it comes with a big financial dependency, which might not be of much use or even affordable if you are starting or doing a job for smaller clients.
So, it’s better to understand the need before diving in.
Are you going to hop onto Survey Monkey and try out their resources or are you going to give it a pass? Let me know in the comments below!
