The world became flat. Technology enables instant global communications and collaborations among people and on-demand products and services. Simplicity, inclusivity, and maintainability are three mottos of the modern web. Nothing should distract a customer on his way to interaction or purchase.
But it wasn’t always like that. In the early period of the web, web-based businesses were facing a big problem: “How to explain our prospects what a hell we do?”. The most obvious answer is to mimic a real-world environment and products – the skeuomorphic style was born.
With skeuomorphic design came an era 3d or 3d-like logos. Glossy and shiny, beveled and embossed they were trying to portray a new digital look of the company, leaving out all the rough edges, restrictions and limitations of the real world. Some of them go too far and became an exaggeration, a small caricature of the product’s qualities and features.
In this article, I collected the most impressive free 3d logo templates, that I believe, represent all the best that all 3d logos should have.
