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.

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.

We occasionally release them into the wild as downloadable vector art but unlike most websites promising free logos that aren’t free at all, we actually mean free. No registration. No obligation. Just free.

Free logos currently available for download in our Morgue Files:
“This skull & crossbones artwork was created for a pirate treasure map desktop & wallpaper design but was ditched at the last minute as being too realistic for the overall theme. We originally thought about using it as the logo for our Morgue Files itself, but didn’t for the same reason..”Skull & Crossbones
“This logo was designed for a virtual poker lounge but the project tanked shortly after this design was finalized. We’ve kept the typography intact so if anyone is starting up a casino or poker related business and the name features Ace & King, you’re halfway there..”Ace King 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
