A treasure trove of individually crafted: Logo Marks, Brand Marks, Type Marks, Emblems, Symbols & Icons, taken from my Logo Design Portfolio; Displayed in Glorious Monochromatic Techniblack.
The following five photographs are of The Monomarks Collection book that I am currently self publishing, which will show one Monomark, in Positive and Negative, per double-page spread:
Some of the Monomarks you will see on this page, taken from my Logo Design Portfolios, may not be actual logo designs in the traditional sense.
In these small cases the Monomarks 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.
Monomarks are also on Instagram
Not all my logo and brand identity designs are in the Monomarks Collection, particularly if they are of a typographic stye, usual called by one of three terms: logo type, word mark or type mark.
The main focus behind the Monomarks is to focus on the graphical element of a logo design. The exception is if the logo design used by a client is wording without any associated visual imagery, and has some element of typographic design associated with it.
Examples where the logo is primarily formed from wording only, and included in the Monomarks: Pleasant Hill Grain, Focus, Grape, Black Vanilla, Skiplex, Sifterapp.
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.
