10 Cool Examples of Transparent Logo Designs

Transparency gives logos a special eye catching effect. In the past, transparency wasn’t as possible in logo design because multiple layers didn’t always print well due to the technology at the time. Thankfully this is no longer an issue, meaning that many logo designers are now able to use this distinctive technique in their designs. Here are some of our favorites.

  1. Castle Print

As an office printing company, Castle Print has a transparent logo that amply shows off their printing capabilities. We see colored circles overlapping each other. In print, this would showcase the clarity and color range of the printing.

  1. PayPal logo design by Yves Behar

The Pay Pal logo is perhaps the most well-known use of the transparent logo effect. “Show me the money” indeed! This logo was designed by Yves Behar, the founder and CEO of fusepoint. In a nod to the former Pay Pal logo, the words and the letters remain in the italic font. It is more legible than the previous Pay Pal logo, which was frequently mistaken for a parking sign!

We have opted to save the best for last with this beautiful swan logo by Aleksander Grkinic. This Serbian designer created a truly wonderful logo for Creative Atelier. It is definitely not an ugly duckling!
