Shaded logos that use gradients and shading have, historically, been avoided because they aren’t shown at their best when printed in black and white, but as the web has evolved and become used more and more by businesses (and especially with the emergence of companies that only operate online), shaded logos are coming back with a vengeance.
Shading and gradients can add a depth to a logo, and can help to make the mark “pop” a bit more. It’s a very useful technique to be able to lift part of the logo off the page so that it doesn’t seem quite so flat – but it can be quite challenging to do it effectively and in a way that looks natural. I’ve brought together 30 examples of superbly crafted shaded logos that make use of gradients & shading to improve and define the logo – hopefully this collection will inspire you with your next logo design.
