Morgue Files – Free Logos & Vector Art

Morgue Files is an old newspaper and magazine term for unused photography and editorial. Nothing wrong with any of it per se, save it was judged at the time to not be appropriate for publication. These are our Morgue Files. They are, of course, logos. And you can download them for free.

Morgue Files Logo

Morgue Files

As grim as it may sound, Morgue Files is an old newspaper and magazine term for unused photography and editorial that for one reason or another, never saw the light of day. At our studio we have an extensive archive of unused, rejected and otherwise unused logos – our Morgue Files – and rather than pawning them of as “ready-made logo templates“, we occasionally release them into the wild as downloadable vector art. And unlike most websites promising free logos that aren’t free at all, we actually mean free. No registration. No obligation. Free.

What else do you need for a poker logo?

“One of the skills required by a decent logo designer is the ability to break complex objects down to simple graphic forms. One of the more complex objects to iconify are flowers in general, roses in specific. Here’s a great simplified graphic depiction of a rose in full bloom, originally created as a concept for a flower shop logo..”

Rose Vector Art

A rose by any other name is still a sweet icon
