Typography, the art of using letters to build a picture, offers a range of design possibilities limited only by one’s creativity. Therefore, it shouldn’t be a surprise that typography is a key element of many logo designs we see today – just think of Coca-Cola’s instantly memorable serif typeface.

It’s not just Coca-Cola though. Many companies have built their identities with typographic logo designs, exploiting the characteristics of the medium to great effect. Many of today’s companies have adopted vintage typographic logos to convey qualities like elegance, romance and beauty in a retroactive form.

In this post, we are featuring a collection of 33 vintage typographic logos that showcase a range of creative design ideas. We hope that you’ll be able to draw some inspiration from them for your own vintage logo design.
