Are oval logos out of style? If you consider social media logos, you don’t see a lot of oval in the designs. These days there are a lot more logos with squares with slightly curved edges. Still, there may yet be hope for the oval-shaped logo.

I was inspired by this post about circular logos to create a similar type of post. When I saw that article, I was surprised by how attractive many of the designs were. I didn’t realize that the circular form for a logo could be so simple yet attractive and iconic. I looked around for a list of oval logos to complement the circular ones but couldn’t find one so I decided to put one together myself.

One point I can make about using the oval concept is that it allows for a lot of flexibility. Unlike circular logos, the oval shape inherently allows you to place it on an angle which can create a sense of dynamism. After searching extensively, I found these 60 logos worth putting up. I find that some are particularly creative while others are very well known but not particularly impressive. This is a sort of study on the shape as the comparison says a lot about the options you have when you design an oval logo.
