6 Cookbook Layouts To Organize Your Recipes Perfectly

Whether you’re compiling your own recipe book or creating a cookbook to publish, here are 6 cookbook layouts that look great, organized and captivating. From a conventional style with food photography and simple text to illustrations and pull-out papercraft, these examples of cookbook layouts are better than any printable and editable recipe book template that you might find on Google. Authenticity sells, and that goes for both recipes and visual design. Here are some of the most unique mockup designs that will help you organize your own cookbook and think of a never-before-seen layout solution. 1. Huxtabook - classy and easy-to-navigate map of dishes This elegantly designed cookbook is a masterpiece of layout and book cover design. Even though it has a lot of photos, a long list of ingredients on every recipe page, and often a lot of text that is hard to fit in a single page, the designers at A Friend of Mine successfully managed to make it classy, easy to navigate and very legible. This beautiful cookbook is impressive for newbie foodies as well as pros in the kitchen because the birds-eye view of the dishes with small tips and advice mapped out through the pages help feature more text than just the recipe instructions. The ingredient list is also mapped out in this simple layout style. The book is separated in three key sections: Sea (Seafood), Land (Meats) and Earth (Vegetable dishes). The design references the sections map style layout of food photography. The table of contents isn’t a classic list layout, but a map pointing out to the tasty dishes seen in a photograph. The designers ingeniously used different backgrounds for the different sections: a subtle blue slate background represents the sea, and casually tableclothed areas make up the land. To make sure the design isn’t noisy or oversaturated, they used simple sans serif typography and tame tones for the kitchen accessories, so nothing bursts out of the composition. 2. Kuchnia sezonowa - colorful and illustrated recipe book This lovely cookbook design is a highly-detailed and illustrated project by the graphic designer Martyna Marzec. There is a collection of recipes for every season of the year, and the recipes are easily distinguishable because of the icon next to the table marking the season when the recipe’s ingredients are fresh and easier to find. The main ingredients are also illustrated and signify the base of the dish in the table of contents. The page on the left includes a lovely illustration of the ready dish, together with a list of ingredients, preparation time, number of servings, etc. The page on the right includes easy-to-follow instructions. Next to all of them you can see an icon signifying the stage of preparation the instruction is in (cutting, cooking, broiling, eating). The artist rightfully balances the layout with a lot of white space, which helps the overall design be toned down, even though it’s a picture book of colorful illustrations. 3. Food Play - simple layout to compile your favorite recipes in This captivating and retro concept by the designer Sue Lyn Ting uses vintage typography and signage and focuses more on the visual part of explaining the recipe. For people who find it hard to follow a recipe without seeing the actual steps, it is a great idea to focus on photography and visualized instructions, than to focus on text and detailed explanations. The list of ingredients is also depicted in a simple way of showing the recipe deconstructed: all the ingredients separately captured in a birds-eye view photo. Every cookbook recipe is written in a lovely handwritten font on a simple white background, and the signage is customized and handcrafted. It can serve as a great idea for a cookbook template, and if you’re crafty with pen and paper, you can use the idea for hand-drawn signs and lettering for your own cookbook. 4. Handfuls of Herbs - good food to grow yourself This final major project of the graphic designer Cassia Friello goes off the charts with creativity and versatility in different uses. She only had a simple brief to create a set of three short cookbooks with the target market of professionals in the creative industry aged to 25-35, and managed to create a product where the layout and design are so unique that they become the main point of buying such a book. The cookbook consists of three smaller books on rosemary, coriander and basil, all containing recipes with those herbs as an ingredient. The fact that it’s recipe cards wrapped in paper hiding in seeds for these herbs is where the amazing creativity of this design comes into play. If you drench the paper with water, the herbs will grow out of it. The layout is a pamphlet or catalog type that you can also fold into an origami box, and the recipes themselves are extremely minimal and consist only of photos and illustrations of the ingredients. It’s a more DIY approach to both the design of the cookbook and the cooking itself, but as we mentioned, it’s mostly targeting creative industry members. “I focussed mainly on having innovative inside layouts, challenging the traditional cookbook designs of plain text with basic images. Although I have a minimal amount of textual instructions I feel the illustrations of the ingredients and food photography present the essential content in an interesting visual way”, says the graphic designer in the project on Behance. 5. CPA Recipe Book - straight to the point design for the modern-day audience The CPA Recipe Book isn’t your typical cookbook template, but a condensed, near bizarre version of a typical collection of recipes. The designer Jason Booth imagined a cookbook for the average reader with CPA (Continuous Partial Attention), defined as the process of skimming information without fully reading it. He took that idea and made a fictional cookbook of simple minimalist illustrations and collapsing typography, filled with straightforward recipes that are extremely easy to follow for anyone. Another ingenious idea of Booth was to make the pages resistant to grease, so you can turn the pages with no worries while you’re cooking. It contains recipes like the Paradoxical Pretzel, Ban'offel' Pie & Simple Stu, and even though it sounds strange, you’re supposed to end up with good food on your plate that you’ll be able to make yourself, no matter how hard it is for you to stick to the instructions. This is an extremely unique layout for a cookbook, especially suitable for a certain target group. However, if your plan is for your family recipes to reach a much broader audience, it’s probably best to stay closer to a mainstream layout or ready cookbook template. 6. Las verduras de muchas maneras And finally, a treat for our vegan readers. Las verduras de muchas maneras, or Vegetables in many ways, is a compact compilation of recipe cards, together with a season map of every vegetable (when it grows), and detailed and simple illustrations of every vegetable included. The layout is simple and effective: patterns inspired by vegetable forms and colors adorn the backgrounds, and text including the recipes and gastronomic and nutritional facts are put in simple white space. Next to that, we see a depiction of the vegetable, and its Latin name. It’s a great idea to educate the reader about the origin and benefits of the ingredient, not just the way of making a dish with it. We hope you found these unique and ambiguous layouts to be inspiring for your own cookbook design. You might find our lists of cookbook cover ideas and cookbook fonts useful as well. Keep in mind that in a heavily digital world, you can also find layouts that are suitable as an iOS and Android cooking apps, or simply look for cookbooks and recipe templates that might suit your needs better on platforms such as Behance or Pinterest. Good luck and happy cooking! ... Read more

How to Nail Your Barber Shop Branding in 7 Moves

A barbershop is an experience, not just a place providing fresh cuts and shaves. Here is how to make yours an unforgettable and recognizable brand that people will love to return to. A visit to the barbershop is part need, part joy. You take some time for yourself and slow down. And in such places, the service itself is not the sole reason people return. They like authenticity, creativity and personal flair to the brand. For a barbershop, that means a consistent brand identity and relatable values. You can build this identity by checking the mark on these elements of branding: Name Visual identity Mission statement Signage and interior design Personalized products Advertising Website or social media 1. Name For the name of your barbershop, you need something that perfectly encapsulates your business but is also catchy and relatable to the audience you want to attract. It can be your name, a quirky and smart wordplay, based on the location… Anything that sounds well and elevates and explains what your business is about. 2. Visual identity To create a strong visual identity, you need to define these key elements: Logo Visual strategy Color palette The best way to start building a strong identity is to base it on insights and market research. After learning about your core audience, create a strategy that you will implement to position your brand on the market and achieve the perception you want from your customers. You can start compiling ideas and examples you like in the early stages and create a mood board that will help you stay in line with your style in the future. Learn more about making mood boards here. The logo and other visual elements, such as typography, color palette and symbols are extremely important because they can build recognition and people remember them easily. They need to be memorable, versatile, connected to the brand, distinctive and simple. Base your visual strategy and color palette that you will stick to both with external and internal branding and advertising on current trends, color psychology, and of course, your core audience and its main interests. Local Barber Co. logo You can see more great examples to learn from in our list of 15 Neat and Tidy Barber Logos, as well as fonts you can use in the selection of 15 Hip Barber Shop Fonts For Cutting Edge Businesses. 3. Mission Statement The main elements that will sell your mission statement to the core audience are: Motto Brand mission Barbershops are increasingly popular amongst younger hipster populations, so focus your name and brand mission towards something millennials relate to most. Or, if you are trying to approach older customers with traditional barbershop services, keep it simple and straightforward. If your selling point is that you are a neighborhood barbershop where people come for the experience and good company, make that the focus of your mission. If you are self-sustainable and only use vegan and cruelty-free products, make sure to mention that. If it’s a family business you have been keeping alive for generations, that is something to be proud of. Even something as simple as “You get a shave and a glass of bourbon” can be a statement that will attract. Keep in mind that the motto and brand mission statement need to be something you truly believe in and stick to as a small business owner, but it also needs to sell your business as a unique service and experience. Here is a great example of this, for the branding of Local Barber Co. developed by Jarett Johnston. 4. Signage and interior design Barbershops are well known for their red and blue barber poles and vintage signage. The barbershop aesthetic as a whole is recognizable and one possibly a staple of hipster design. But of course, you can go further than just putting barber poles and your business name on the door. You can create vintage, engraved, or neon signs, or go as far as painting murals and graffiti on your wall. Local Barber Co. nailed this too, applying cool signage in both the exterior and interior of the barber shop. They used their color palette, general hip and youthful style, and custom typography in creating the aesthetic of the shop, keeping the American spirit and sense of community and neighborhood in the overall vibe. A completely different approach, but still successfully implemented and effortlessly cool are the Victory Barbers barbershops in Canada, that fully adopted a 50s aesthetic with furniture, vintage signage, tools, deliverable… Everything in these barbershops looks like the set of Mad Men. Promoting your brand in-house goes beyond the interior design and signage you use, too. You can brand your aprons, uniforms, stationery, the tools the other barbers use, like this example for Barba Bird branding from Dawid Cmok. Use these examples as inspiration and find the style that you will base your whole tangible experience for the customer on. Of course, make sure that it is in line with the visual identity of your brand, both online and offline. 5. Personalized products Another practical way to promote your brand and give something extra to your customers by having cool packaging designs on products you might sell. If you sell pomade, cream, lotion and other hair and beard care products, apply your logo and visual identity to it as well. Just as the signage and branding of your tools and uniforms leave an impression when a customer visits, your products will have the same effect, but the customers will bring them home with themselves. And who doesn’t want beautifully designed packaging? Sansón & Barrabás products by Parallel Studio Republica de Barbados by Greg Lopes The Made Men Barbershop by Eric Vasquez 6. Advertising After building a strong brand, you need to make sure people recognize it. Brand recognition is best and most quickly established through advertising, especially in the early phases of your business. Every household name started somewhere, and it probably took a lot of smart advertising and consistency of both the visual and branding strategy embedded in marketing to get the brand there. Where you need to start is to base your ads, no matter if they are online or offline, on your mission statement, main values and visual strategy you’ve decided on. And of course, seek out good examples from companies that have been in your shoes. Ads for Universal Barber Shop by Target Marketing 7. Website or social media The last, but not least important element of good barber shop branding is having a platform for customers to keep in touch, stay informed about working hours, news, location, products, etc. And that place is definitely a website, or if you can’t afford one right away, a Facebook or Instagram account that you will keep updated. As with everything we said so far, keeping close to the brand mission and visual identity applies to this as well: stay true to your brand and be consistent in every marketing asset you’ve got. For example, check out the Victory Barbers website. Social media is also a great way to reach new customers and market your brand for free, especially if you implement a good strategy and quality content to boost your following. You can post behind the scenes videos, before and after transformations of haircuts and beard styling, the look of your salon, the people who are regular visitors, or your products. The possibilities are nearly endless. Instagram Feed of Berber i Bar Vtornik So, before you start working on your own amazing branding for a barbershop, make sure you’ve taken care of these steps first: Research the market Decide on a mission statement and visual identity Develop the other elements of branding based on the strategy you’ve adopted Stay true to your brand, both externally and internally We hope you found this helpful. You can read more about visual and corporate branding, as well as principles of good logo design on our blog. Good luck with creating your kick-ass brand!... Read more

23 Cookbook Fonts That Are the Secret Ingredient for a Perfect Cover

Unique appetizing dishes, good photo or illustration, clever title… Only one thing is missing in this recipe for a perfect cookbook cover design, and that is a good font. Check out 23 of them that will perfectly tie all the ingredients. If you’re working on a cookbook, compiling family recipes, or simply doing research for designing a good cookbook cover, chances are you need suggestions for a good cookbook font too. If you need inspiration, look no further: we have a list of 16 Appetizing Cookbook Cover Ideas, and now we’ll also dig deeper into good cookbook fonts as well. Handwritten fonts Cursive, handwritten and slightly decorative fonts aren’t the typical choice for book cover design since they are more noisy and in-your-face. But a cookbook isn’t any book—it’s homely, colorful, playful and accepting of more flair. And a handwritten font can give exactly that homemade feel to your cookbook cover when combined well with the other design elements. 1. Billion Dreams (free for personal use) Billion Dreams is a lovely font with elegant ligatures and alternate styles that can easily fit your cookbook cover design. Even though it is cursive, it’s still legible and the thick brushstrokes make it a stylish typeface that will give personality to your cover. 2. Wild Hazelnut (free for personal use) Another free-flowing and versatile typeface, but slightly more legible because it’s not fully cursive. It is a cute and intricate font that will add some extra taste to your design. 3. Sharpie Pro Typeface (purchase only) If you want to add zest and youthfulness to your design, look no further than this font. It is creative and fun, but legible and practical. It will look great combined with a simple sans serif as a secondary font. 4. Sophia (free) This hand-lettered brush style typeface is feminine and sweet and will make a great combination with a colorful illustration cover, like in this cute example. The font pack has both uppercase and lowercase letters, extra styles and ornaments, so you won’t run out of combinations for sure. 5. Bold Lining (free for personal use) If you want a handwritten font that is still not extremely decorative and has a sterner structure, this marker font is the right choice. It will be a great addition to a cookbook cover that is designed in the style of a family recipe book, or a design with a scrapbook feel to it. 6. Wild Blood (free for personal use) And here is another example of a signature cursive font, this time an extremely elegant and thin one. It makes for a pretty and stylish solution, but be wary that it might not be visible if you add it to a colorful and noisy background. Simple and crisp cookbook typography Like any good recipe, there is one basic, very simple element that allows for experimentation and creativity with everything else around it. You can use this age-old approach when it comes to fonts too: opt for a simple one and let the photography or illustration on your cover be the centerpiece. Here are some simple but captivating logos that will look beautiful on your cookbook cover. 7. Coolvetica (free) Coolvetica is a fairly well-known and widely used font, sort of like how eggs or salt go with almost anything. It is a sans serif font based on Helvetica (but cooler, as the name suggests). Pair it with thin script secondary font, or simply over a classy photograph of the dishes your readers will soon be cooking up. 8. Caviar Dreams (free) A font that has “caviar” in its name must be a delicacy, right? This lovely and classy sans serif font has sharp edges and more geometric shapes, that will add a dash of elegance and stylishness to your cover. 9. Arca Majora 3 (free for personal use) The third version and upgrade of the Arca Majora typeface is a slightly bolder and more noticeable option than the other simple sans serif fonts, based on geometrical shapes and possessing strong legibility. 10. Morn (free for personal use) Morn is a font family consisting of 22 different styles, the base of which is a sharp geometric font with a roman proportion. Each of the characters comes from either a circle or a triangle shape. It supports many European languages, not just the standard English alphabet. 11. Raspoutine (donationware) This basic, but elegant sans serif font has very subtle curvature and is slightly italic, while still maintaining the legibility and classiness. It vaguely resembles the Nesquik font, but it is more stern and versatile. 12. Clemente (free) This elegant sans serif has unique angles of the letters, that makes it perfectly suitable for headlines and book cover titles. It is stylish but clean and non-decorative, so it will go perfectly with a captivating photograph for your cover. Classy fonts Sure, simplicity is evergreen, but classiness doesn’t go out of fashion either. Like a good dinner table, you will need a classy detail, and these fonts might be the perfect addition. 13. Rustler Barter (free for personal use) This modern serif inspired by the Art Deco style is a beautiful addition that will introduce some extra flair to your design. As the designer says, it “perfectly represents vintage aesthetics in a modern and minimalist way”. 14. Crafter (free) Crafter is a typeface inspired by vintage metal signs and sign painters, that has a low x height and two unique styles. It would make a great cookbook title if you opt for a vintage and retro design of your cover. 15. Dilemma (purchase only) This Dilemma family can really put you in a dilemma, because it has both a serif and a sans serif font, as well as 42 styles, 3 widths and 7 weights in both versions. It is an option that offers ambiguity and a ying-yang combination of two very similar, but far from identical fonts. 16. New Rachel (purchase only) New Rachel is a modern serif typeface, inspired by the classic and famous Bodoni font and lapidary Roman typeface. As in Bodoni characters, Rachel is characterized by a strong contrast between thin and thick rods. 17. Megante (free for personal use) This classy typeface has some unique ligatures that end abruptly, and organic circular forms that will grace the design of your cookbook cover with their presence. 18. Modric (demo) Modric is an all caps condensed sans serif. Use it if you're going for a stirring effect between a colorful cover and a classy, stern font. The package includes multilingual characters too. Decorative For those of you who need to impress and attract the attention of the reader from the very start, a decorative font could do wonders. You should keep in mind that it might be too much if you already have a colorful and illustrated cover, so use it sparingly. 19. Brayline (purchase only) This fancy decorative typeface is a monoline swashed script inspired by Old Neon Signs. With it, you’ll get more than 400 glyphs and alternative characters. According to the creator, it is suitable to use on different design projects such as signage, book covers, invitations, packaging, logotypes and more. 20. Fontastique (free for personal use) Fontastique is a unique and subtle sans serif, that flows perfectly and will add some pizzazz to your cookbook cover design for sure. Based on circular shapes, it isn’t cursive but it has some calligraphic features that will add class but still stay legible. 21. New Forest (purchase only) New Forest is a modern font inspired by the Art Nouveau movement, that comes in two styles: regular and italic with a total of 853 glyphs. With its luscious curvature and elegant serifs, it makes for a tasteful option for a title font. 22. Sage (purchase only) This fashionable and refreshing font is based on the Didot font, known for the drastic differences between the thick and thin lines. It pairs great with a minimal and subtle script font. 23. Springfield (purchase only) If you want cute calligraphic typography and some simple doodles that will further decorate your cookbook cover, go Springfield is the font for you. It will for sure offer a scrapbook aesthetic to your cookbook. ... Read more

20 Realtor Logos That Are the Foundation of a Great Brand

Find inspiration for the logo of your real estate agency or realtor-associate business, through these evergreen and classy examples. The real estate industry is one that will keep existing. People will always need a home, and with time it’s getting harder to find one. Realtors need a strong brand to stand out from the competition, starting with a good logo. Here are some great examples, ranging from small members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) to giants in the real estate business. Modern simplicity Houses, foundations, buildings, families are common symbols used in realtor logos. Although they sometimes feel uninventive and bland, these symbols can be implemented into the logo with a smart and fresh twist, giving them a taste of the modern and minimal. Here are some realtors that opted for this approach when building their branding. 1. District Partners This real estate business infused playfulness, modernness and freshness to its logo that can rarely be seen in an industry that generally has a more stern and conventional character. By making the letters D and P in lowercase into a knot, this logo communicates perfectly the idea that realtors will find you a home where you’ll feel connected and interlinked with those most important to you. Combined with a sans serif font in all caps, this logo makes for a youthful, but a still professional look of a dedicated brand. 2. Thirty Park Place Thirty Park Place is a luxurious residential building in New York, designed by Robert A.M Stern, the legendary architect who is responsible for a huge portion of the New York skyline of today. The logo is luxurious and modern, with a splash of Art Deco and contemporary minimalism. 3. Quadra Realty The graphic designer behind the Quadra Realty logo did a great job of creating a pictogram based on the letter Q, combining the rising sun over a home’s roof. It is a simple, yet effective idea, and the combination of dark blue and gold enhances the stylishness of it. The vintage feel of the subtle serif font also works well with the whole concept. 4. Fairhomes This logo design concept for a real estate and property management online tool screams Software as a Service aesthetic, infusing a tiny element such as a roof into the wordmark to remind us of the nature of the business. It’s easy to imagine this fitting well with social media because of the lively salmon-red color and minimal wordmark. Concept by Omnium Creative and classy monograms Taking the initials of the realtor-associate or sometimes the first letters of the names of partners in a real estate firm can make a solid starting point in creating a timeless monogram that will look great anywhere: from stationery to business cards. Some are classy enough to be made into cool custom cufflinks. 5. Terry Vo Real Estate Broker This real estate agent working in Seattle has a stylish and minimalistic monogram logo. The color palette is based on ground and gold tones, while the shape of the monogram resembles sharp and modern architectural forms. The fonts used in the logo are Muller Extra Bold Caps and Muller Thin Caps as a secondary font, both of which are clean and simple sans serifs, adding a professional tone and reliability to this realtor logo. 6. Hilton & Hyland Now, this is a real estate logo that exudes luxury and professionalism. The glitz and glam of their main market—Los Angeles—is easily translated into the simplicity of this monogram, which creates the illusion of a house or building with the mirroring letter H. 7. Luxury Portfolio International This cool and minimalistic monogram is the new logo of Luxury Portfolio International, that previously used a subtle slab serif wordmark with some decorative elements. This new logo is far more fitting and contemporary, making it easier to take the branding of this real estate giant that is the luxury property division of the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. 8. Gregg Lynn According to this real estate professional’s website, he is ranked one of two top real estate agents in San Francisco by the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). And being on top of such a market means that Gregg Lynn needs to reflect that status in his brand. The realtor does that well with this classy monogram logo, paired with a simple sans serif wordmark. 9. Pilarski Real Estate Group This vertically mirrored logo design combines the initials of real estate agent Julian Pilarski, creating an evergreen emblem logo in a circular frame. Some versions of the logo include value propositions that make it noisy, but in its simple form with name and monogram, it makes for a cool logo. Classic wordmarks Sure, monograms, symbols and emblems are cool, but a simple wordmark goes a long way, especially in a business where professionalism and reliability are most valued. Here is a selection of wordmarks, both contemporary and classic, that might help you make up your mind for just some good old typography. 10. Corcoran This New York-based real estate agency has a logo that could easily pass as a fashion logo: clean, classy, slightly Italic. Even though there is no fluff or immediate association of a realtor business, it is a beautiful logo design that can stand the test of time. 11. Park Kiara This luscious green haven in the heart of Hanoi is an exotic oasis in a metropolis, bringing the jungle and nature to its inhabitants. As a real estate park whose design is based on combining nature and modernism, it’s only fitting that it has a logo that encapsulates this. The slightly tribal but elegant font in dark green is the perfect solution to represent that. 12. Hestia Real Estate A simple wordmark in Montserrat Bold (learn more about it in our list of free construction fonts) and a lovely dark blue and gold color combination makes this emblem logo a stylish solution. The concept draws inspiration from the Greek goddess Hestia and ancient Greek aesthetics, including a recognizable post that makes a nice addition to the whole design. Concept by Kristina Taylor 13. Century 21 Action Realty This member of the National Association of Realtors went for a super simplistic wordmark that some might argue isn’t an innovative logo. But in a business where companies usually try to pitch as much as possible with their basic branding elements, a little bit of mystery can draw more attention. 14. AmeriHomes Another example that says “This is simple as simple can get”. A crisp vintage slab serif wordmark in white put over a red background is a logo design that lets the audience focus on the brilliance of this company’s name: American Homes, or AmeriHomes for a fun and creative option. A touch of trendy and digital This last category on our list has both realtors and property management and real estate search apps and tools, so you will notice that they are more suitable for a SaaS design trend and a digital-era aesthetic. 15. Homely Homely is an Australian tool for searching real estate and easily finding reviews and Q&A for certain properties and suburbs. The fact that they are strictly digital is easily noticeable from the look of their brand identity: the simple icon and logomark seem to be a winning recipe for tech-oriented businesses in the past few years. 16. Leftbank This concept is essentially a logo for sale, that would be suitable for a real estate business or app. The L looks like a building block, and the color scheme is fresh and youthful, suitable for a new company entering the real estate market. Concept by Dalius Stuoka 17. RealScout This platform that connects agents and homebuyers and helps them search for a home together also opted for a house icon but went with a black-and-white color combination and a simple shadow that adds some three-dimensionality to the design. This is yet another redesign, and definitely a welcome one. 18. Vincer This logo design concept is creative, refreshing and definitely an unexpected burst of color in this list. By adding pastel colors and shadows, the graphic designer managed to outline a heart over the icon, reminding us that home and love often go together. Concept by Gabriel M. Ramos 19. Rental Zebra This property management firm exists, but the rebranding concept hasn't been adopted. I would argue that it is a much-needed rebranding that will take a bad logo to a one that is cool and makes the company look ready for the digital wave. Concept by Eddie Lobanovskiy 20. Homey The last concept in our selection combines a simple wordmark with an abstract icon, that overlaps a house shape with an office building shape. It is a logo that combines the two figures “in a way that feels accessible​, modern and friendly”. Concept by Paulius Kairevicius Tips for using real estate trademarks We hope you found inspiration and are already developing an idea for your own cool realtor logo. The 20 examples in our list are our selection, but there are plenty of other companies with good branding that you can search for on, NAR, Google or LinkedIn, to name a few. However, keep in mind that there is a certain code of ethics and rules for using the term realtor and the realtor® trademark. You can learn more about the usage of the realtor® trademark use here. Keep in mind that in the USA, this term and trademark can only be used for realtors that are members of the National Association of Realtors. The four different Realtor® trademarks are Realtor®, Realtors®, Realtor-Associate® and the Realtor® block “R” logo.... Read more
