The style and visual aesthetic of a company’s logo says a lot about the brand. If a design is professional and serious then that can imply that the business also shares those features. If a logo is elegant and thoughtful, then that can indicate that the brand also has an element of elegance behind it. But if you’re designing a logo for a company that has a bit of a personality, then the logo is the perfect place to allow that personality to shine through.

It’s possible to create a design that’s both professional, but full of personality and even has a hint of mischief about it. It’s not easy, and it’s certainly a difficult challenge for a designer to face – but it’s extremely rewarding when it’s done properly.

To help give you some inspiration, we’ve collected a gallery of imaginative, interesting and creative logos that all have an element of mischief and fun about them, as well as showing that the brand doesn’t necessarily take itself too seriously. Some are unofficial logos created for fun, while others are the actual logos that a brand has used to define themselves – but all are brilliantly designed, creative and fun.
