5 Responses to “5 Minute Church Logos”

  • Too many church logos look like a coat of arms, without the cool retro design, filled with colors and symbols that a few people understand, but that make them impossible to put on a shirt or render in black and white.

      Pretty good? I think some of it is amazing. Granted they’re not refined logos, but for five minutes?! Come on!

      It’s funny that five minutes from an expert like Von Glitschka is often better than hours and hours a novice could put in. (or days and days from a complete nondesigner like me, which is why I used his five minute logo on my Billyspot site!)

    I love the ‘Design Monkey’ logo on the home page. It makes me smile! I have no idea why. It just does. The Facebook page is awesome! I’m a fan now.

    I have my logo designed on for $5.00 best $$ I ever spent. I would rather see a church spend $5.00 and use left over fund to help change peoples lives. Stop putting your crappy logo on coffee cups and women’s retreat swag bags and do something that would make Jesus proud of his children.
