There is something incredibly enticing about the ocean. The mystery of the deep, the adventure of the high seas. Bring some of that excitement into your design projects by taking inspiration from this collection of nautical themed logos. These are a great example of design taking the key features and objects of something (in this case sailing and ocean navigation) and utilising them to bring a sense of that theme into the logos. Notice here the particular use of anchors, compasses, and wheels to form the strong visual basis of each nautical logos.
