Monomarks Collection designed by The Logo Smith, is a treasure trove of individually crafted solid black: Logo Marks, Brand Marks, Type Marks, Emblems, Symbols & Icons, taken from my Logo Design Portfolio; Displayed in Glorious Monochromatic Techniblack.
In these small cases they will be an individually crafted: app icon, symbol, emblem or image, and therefore may not used to brand and represent a company, business or individual.
However, they might be used to brand a: blog, phone app, or some other specialised/niche entity.
Here are a quick handful of Monomark examples, before the main Monomark Portfolio Grid:
Detail masked by Simplicity
I go to great lengths to ensure that each logo I design works in its purest form; stripped of all colour and in most cases, all wording.
This allows the resulting Glorious Techniblack Logo Mark to convey the intended message in the purest way possible.
The benefit of a logo mark that works well in solid black is that it will often translate well to small sizes, such as those required for: application icons, social media profile images, favicon, avatars, etc.
Not all my logo designs are included, particularly if they are of a typographic stye, usually called by one of three terms: logo type, word mark or type mark.
The main focus behind the the Monomarks Collection is to focus on the graphical element of a logo design.
Monomarks are also on Instagram
