Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

Which brand comes to your mind first when you see the letter “M”? I bet “McDonalds” is what strikes your mind. Undeniably, some of the biggest brands have built their entire reputation on a single letter. That is precisely the case with top brands like McDonalds, Honda, Unilever and QuickTime. Sometimes " simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" when it comes to logo designing. Here are some examples of famous brands dominating the world with their “single-letter” logos.

Famous “Single Letter” logos

It is not always necessary to incorporate the entire company name in your logo design. A single letter can also do the trick. If meticulously used, a single letter can give you a memorable logo design. In order to understand how one can maneuver a single letter to make an attractive logo design, here are some logo design inspirations that cleverly use a single letter to carve out a wonderful logo design.

  1. HERO On February 24th, 2010 at 11:42 am

    The Giraffe logo has to be one of my favorite single letter logos of all time. Makes me smile every time I see it. Great post.

  1. Bill Covert On February 25th, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    Cool Logo’s! Thanks for sharing them. I wonder if there’s a graphic designer here that may want to create a logo for me? The Accelerator for Success using the Dream Bar Cafe Principles. I have one for Accelerator, but I wouldn’t mind a tune-up. Let me know…

  1. Luke Gedeon On February 25th, 2010 at 9:58 pm


    The word hippopotamus comes from the Greek words hippo=horse and potamus=river - literally river horse.

    And the hippocampus was named after a mythological creature with the head of a horse (hippo) and the tail of a dolphin (camp).

    Sounds like a seahorse to me.

    Oh… wait, were you talking about the fact that the logo looks like the head of a hippo too? I wonder if they did that on purpose.

    I also wonder if they intended to miss-spell the word.

  1. Pius Eugene On February 26th, 2010 at 7:10 am

    Yeah I agree very good logo’s thanks for sharing

  1. Brochure Printing On March 3rd, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Having the company logo design come from the firs letter of the brand is a great way to make people remember you. A good designer will find ways to incorporate the business into the design to take it once step further. When someone sees the logo, the name will be on the tip of their tongue.

  1. web designate On March 4th, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    just great to inspire. Great designers and fantastic minds they have. Wish me also,


  1. Laurent JOUVIN On March 4th, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    I am a huge proponent of the “less is more” aphorism. Some people might think it’s easier… I strongly disagree. It’s a lot harder to come up with something that works; but when it does, it’s one powerful logo.

  1. Jye On March 5th, 2010 at 2:57 am

    Single letter logos are easily one of the best company identities in the sense that they are much more memorable.

  1. Rob Cameron On March 8th, 2010 at 11:21 am

    All of these are great creative inspiration but by far the “Water Drop” logo wins hands down. So simple and yet so creative.

  1. Henna On April 12th, 2010 at 2:21 am

    some of the single letter logos are just great, i specially love the kellogs and the mc donalds logo, they are recognized everywhere and people can associate with them no matter where in the world we see them! just great creativity!!

  1. mircha69 On April 15th, 2010 at 11:42 am

    you might want to ask for permission before using one’s logo to benefit your goal or at least credit the designers who created them

    this being said please take down “young gun”
    thank you

  1. Professional Logos On April 16th, 2010 at 8:47 am

    These are really amazing logos. My favourites are “Water Drop” and the “Pacific Shore”. I could also mention many more but these two look wonderful - very sophisticated!

    ~Oh, yes. great marketing. Oh, the power of ~just that one letter~. It would be like a name..I could ” think”

  1. Michael Krivich On September 17th, 2010 at 2:39 am

    Great single letter logo. Not all companies can pull it off. I like Hanuet Wine and Giraffe. Simple yet so creative. Very iconic indeed! I aim for logo design that has such impact. I recently had my logo done by the Logo Design Creation and the quality of work and design concepts that were provided are some of the best I have ever seen. Through efficient and effective communication we were able to come to concensus and a final design in just a couple of days. Since then I have needed to make some minor changes with a new email address and logo design promptly made those changes. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality, responsive logo design services for their business.
