What design factors make a great cartoon logo?
Before you get started on checking out some of our best designs we’d like to give you our list of elements that make great cartoon logos. Here they are listed in no particular order:
- Must have a cartoon character! Person, animal or thing.
- The emblem should have a fun, corresponding font.
- Lettering should not be straight and stiff.
- Bright, whimsical colors are most effective.
- Great facial expressions are important.
- Limit gradients and fades due to printing concerns.
- The character and business name should be prominent.
- Character should be able to stand alone without logo.
- A good tagline or service description.
- Use of outlines on lettering.
#1) Johnny’s Pest Cartoon Logo
This is a simple mouse brand for a pest control business. This is a flat three color design and can be economically printed on any promotional materials. We specialize in creating funny cartoon animals and zany characters. We were trying for more of an icon look to this design rather than a flat out cartoon character. If you need a simple drawing yet sophisticated design we’re your designers.
#2) Mad Duck Adventure Sports Logo
The Mad Duck Adventure Sports logo is probably the design we get the most comments on. We were asked to create an adventurous duck character and relate it to biking. We designed an Indiana Jones character holding a mangled bike tire to show the ruggedness of Mad Duck. The lines in the background and the curved nature of the name present a very eye appealing design. Let us create a unique graphic logo design for you.
#3) Foiled Again! Candy Cartoon Design
A sample of a candy logo design featuring a sinister villain character. A great combination of a recognizable mascot and fun lettering font. We used gold colors to support the fact the the candy is gold coins. The label shape in the background lends itself to easily fit on packages and signs. If your graphic cartoon logo needs to be fun and playful we’re the right designers for you!
#4) Dirty Hairy Dog Grooming
Dirty Hairy is not only a play on the name but also on the whimsical dog and his hair drying weapon. We took the Dirty Hairy Mobile Grooming name and created a dog on skates (mobile) propelling himself along with a large hair dryer (Dirty Harry gun). We also incorporated a beach scene and the act of cutting to enhance the fun feeling of the business. One of our funnest cartoon logo designs. Why not add your logo to our ever growing gallery of designs?
#5) Party Zone Branded Image
This logo design has it all! Its got a sunglasses wearing monkey that’s holding a cotton candy and sno cone. We’ve also drawn a jumping castle in the background and stuck the monkey in a large box of popcorn. We added some zany lettering with a bouncing line on top. This funny brand screams that it is fun! We can create an entertaining logo for you as quick as you let us know what you need.
#6) Jammin Joe’s Jerky Label
Another one of our bright and cheerful designs that was used on a food label. The crazy polar bear is cool wearing his shades and holding his electric guitar. We’ve added a backwards ball cap and a stick of jerky in his mouth. The surfboard and sand help add to the feeling of eating a fun food. If your company could use a custom cartoon graphic to help boost sales please contact us today.
#7) Punkin Chunkin T-Shirt Design
Not only are cartoon illustrations perfect for company logos but humorous illustrations can also be used to promote events through promotional items like t-shirts. Curtoons was the official Punkin Chunkin t-shirt designer for several years. This far out design includes an imaginary pumpkin canon firing a funny cartoon pumpkin into the air. The great thing about any type of cartoon image is that it can be used for multiple purposes that will all help advertise your business.
#8) The Crappie Shack Mascot
Hopefully you can see the coolness of this cartoon doodle. We love creating fun, whimsical characters and making them human like by adding sunglasses, sneakers, clothes or other items a person might use. These added elements help your customers associate with the characters better. This funny fish is not only cool but he’s holding a cold mug of beer. We used an image of a wooden sign to help convey the shack theme of the business. Let us create a fantastic character for your company!
#9) Cartoon Iguana Logo/Character
A very colorful cartoon iguana design. This image has a friendly character and very whimsical lettering. We used a warm beach theme for the background and dressed the character in a Hawaiian shirt and flip flops. The fruit not only stresses the jungle theme but also indicates the different flavors of the frozen drinks. The project included the complete logo design along with the stand alone mascot. A very cheerful graphic image.
#10) Boogie Wipes Logo
In case you were wondering, our logo designs are actually used on products and many times on nationally sold items. You may have seen the Boogie Wipes logo on national television or in several of your local stores. This simple design shows that we do not have to go all out to create a fun, humorous design. Julie and Mindee wanted a couple of cute but simple characters and a fun lettering style. We combined the two into a great design that fits well on almost any packaging that they have. Let us know give you a quote for your next whimsical design.
There are tons of wannabe’s online claiming that they’ll create a logo for $149 or even $49. If you find a designer that can create any one of the designs above, in vector format, at that price, you’d be crazy not to hire them. But good luck finding that gem. We actually have the fairest logo design prices online. For the same cost many companies are charging for swooshes, text only designs and boring block lettering, we are creating fun images that not only have your custom cartoon character but also have wacky lettering and inviting colors. You’ll definitely get what you pay for with a Curtoons created image.
