You may be asking, “What is a stained glass or scenic logo design?”
A stain glass logo or scenic logo is one which kind of goes against the formidable rules of logo design.
Rather than creating a straight up icon or object using one or two shapes and a limited selection of colours, stain glass logo designs can use a multitude of shapes and colour if necessary to create a picturesque landscape painting that works as a logo.
These unique and quite rare logo designs tend to use a style that resembles a traditional pen or paintbrush stroke/effect to end with an image that quite looks like a stained glass window or a painted picture.
On one hand, they can be hard to reproduce in print or screen due the complexity of the design, raising the question, “Are they actually suitable as a versatile logo design?”
On the other hand they are works of art!
Superbly designed, pretty, mini pictures encapsulated into a symbolic form.
They’re at the very least memorable pieces of design communication which makes an impact on viewers.
That’s what makes them work as a logo design.
Check out this great selection of stain glass logo designs and traditional stroked logo designs.
