Animal Logo Designs

Humans are only part of the Nature. Thus, all our life is tightly connected with other inhabitants of our Planet, and animals in particular. Throughout the long history of human civilization, animals played multiple roles in the life of humans: they have been totems, Gods incarnations, food sources, transport means, friends, helpers, and just pets for us. So, it is not a surprise, that today the images of animals are commonly used in such industry as logo designing. Animals have distinct symbolic meanings, for example, a cat is associated with the comfort, a dog – with loyalty, an eagle – with dignity, a tiger – with strength, etc. That is why animal logos and those specific messages their designers wanted to share through the graphics are easily perceived, interpreted, and understood by people. So, now let us just enjoy the best examples of animal logo design we found on the net.

Puppy Photos To Melt Your Heart

Dogs have already been considered as a man’s best friend. But how about puppies? Cute and adorable as they are like rabbits, many artists find time to take photos of them to inspire and to feel loved as they are. Where there is life and the love for creation, you’ll find it in animals’ photographs especially with puppies considered as juvenile dogs.

Hong Kong – The Pearl of the Orient

The Pearl of the Orient – this nickname of Hong Kong is, perhaps, the best characteristic or definition for this Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. By the way, the name of the city, actually, means “fragrant harbor” in English. Today, Hong Kong is one the most densely populated areas in the entire world, and this place is really a pearl or even a precious pearl, which embodies the quintessence of the culture of the Orient, its people, traditions, arts, and legacy. If you have never been to Hong Kong, let us travel there, at least virtually by means of the Internet and the gallery of Hong Kong photographs, we are displaying today at Cruzine.

Daily Inspirations no. 123

The tenth of March… At a first glance, it seems to be an absolutely ordinary day. However, if we look back into the history we will see that many notable events occurred on this day: in 1535 Bishop Tomas De Berlanga discovered Galapagos Islands; in 1862 the USA issued first paper money; in 1876 the first phone call was made; in 1970 Barbara Streisand recorded her “I can do it”; finally, many famous people were born on March 10, including Sharon Stone, Chuck Norris, Timbaland, and even Osama bin Laden. So, you can see that even seemingly ordinary day is actually a very notable day in human history. Thus we know exactly that on March 10th, 2011 somewhere in the world something important will happen, a new talent will be born, a new song will be written, and a new picture will be painted. Who knows, maybe even our today’s gallery of inspirational images will motivate some creative soul to create a masterpiece that will eventually become a valuable contribution to the world heritage of design, illustrations, typography, or digital art.
