16 (More) Creative Logos & Identity Design Projects

Each year, the PRINT Regional Design Awards showcases a vast array of impressive creative projects from around the world—much of which appears in the form of stunning identity design work and logos. To celebrate the RDA (now accepting entries—including logos, identity design projects and other branding collateral), we dug into the winners of last year’s RDA to find some of our favorite logos and applications for a bit of visual inspiration. Looking for more? Check out some of our top picks from the previous year.
