The Logo Factory storage area. Whenever we create infographics and ebooks, we usually make them available for download from our blog. Trouble is, these posts have a way of disappearing into the recesses of our site and are sometimes difficult to find, or users may not notice they’re available at all. To that end, we’ve created this storage area for our free stuff – a warehouse – and a permanent location for our ebooks, infographics and Morgue Files. Speaking of which…
As grim as it may sound (and ignoring our skull logo for a second,) Morgue Files is an old newspaper and magazine term that refers to 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. Since the material was either time-dated or topic-specific, it would probably remain unused and relegated to the archives, never to see the light of day. At our studio we have an extensive archive of unused logos, graphics & art – our own Morgue Files – and every once in a while, we release them into the wild as downloadable vector art. Unlike most websites promising free logos that aren’t free at all, we actually mean free. No email registration required. No pop-up ads. No obligation. Free. Of course, if you’re in the market for a custom brand development, you can always check out our professional logo design services or read about our affordable logo packages.

“One might think that this was part of a design project for a real, honest to goodness safari park. Or a logo for a zoo. Uh-uh. It was actually one of a series of concepts for an company that specialized in importing African themed art and furnishing..”Free Giraffe Vector
“This design was originally developed for a global charity logo and featured in the beta version of our Logos in a Box collection. The globe, while distorted to fit inside the heart graphic, is actually quite accurate. Design is set up as two color artwork so changing them shouldn’t be too difficult if you’ve got access to a copy of Illustrator or similar drawing program..”Globe in a Heart Logo
