Logo Design

Black Squid design logos. Lego design plastic blocks. The one thing logo design and lego block building have in common is that you only get one chance to make an impression. Great logos will never allow an audience to forget about the brand.

Black Squid Design believe that logo’s define brands and should foster immediate audience recognition. Logos are what represent brands or corporate identities. It’s sort of a big deal. For these reasons it is counterproductive to frequently redesign logos. Luckily, Black Squid are productive at designing logos that evolve, timelessly.

Spoilt Bitch

The brief was to come up with a name and logo design for a doggy day care centre located in the upmarket Sydney suburb of Potts Point.

The primary target market is the gay community and wealthy dog owners in this upmarket suburb. Leaving their pride and joy at the doggy day care once or twice a week to play with their friends, go for walks and be treated like royalty. Almost like a holiday.

They say dogs are a man’s best friend. And diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
What do you get when you put them together? A Spoilt Bitch.

The finest doggie day care.

Laucke Flour



Tumbleweed is a Homewares and Collectibles shop located in the Clare Valley, country South Australia - the home of the Tumbleweed. Citing the idea of a tumbleweed rolling along and picking up various items along the way.

With a store full of curiosities and strange collectables, we turned the name into a playful representation of itself. The tumbling letters rolling along invite the customer to tumble on in and discover. Tumbleweed - A little shop of wonders.

Whistle Blower Tea Co

Taking inspiration from whistle blowers and revolutionaries, release of information, codes and redacted documents, we trialled various combinations of missing letters to achieve the most readable, with the brain naturally filling in the gaps in the logo.

Know How

Know How is a property and finance company who's philosophy is ‘Anyone can achieve their financial security for retirement through home ownership’.
The reality is, most people don’t have the ‘know how’ to make this reality come true.
The logo uses negative space to link the 2 words.
The two words are not immediately obvious, but revealed on second glance and the two words now have equal importance.
