2. Logos in Ink Style

Wow. A brilliant new trend for a logo design that we are sure will catch on. Ink Style drawings, from the most complicated hatched lines, with incredible details, to stylized signatures and even more almost graphic images, make you step back and admire. Surely that alone is enough for a logo to be successful. Add in the unlining qualities this Ink style brings, such as the hand-drawn, focus on detail, focus on quality, an individuality that you can almost smell and you are on to a winner. A fine collection of fine logos,l classy, and head-turning.
