    Hey, I'm looking for inspiration. Post your favorite real world logos and why you like them! :-D

    I choose the hyundai logo for it's modern and dynamic look, though it's been around for a while. It's pretty appropriate since Hyundai means 'Modern' in Korean.

    Hard to say why I like it so much. Simple, yet spot on.

    Although I can't help but notice, most of what's been posted so far (this one included) contains a number of those things we're always saying "not" to do use, gradients, drop shadows, etc.

    I've always liked this one. Especially on luggage.

    It's always nice when the company name is the shape of the logo.
