I like it. Very simple, clean and well done.

NICE work!

I am unfamiliar with Knoll. Looking at this logo without a description still leaves me not knowing who they are and what they do. Aesthetics are nice, but thats about it.

Very nice… Clean & simple. I take it this is a seasonal derivative of their regular logo?

Minimal and beautiful, great, especially if it is a seasonal derivative.

UPS ripoff.

Ironically, Paul Rand has commented on this post 13 years after his death.

Nov 10, 2009 at 9:07 am

prolly this hack logo cheesed him off enough to post a comment from the great beyond. ;)

Nov 10, 2009 at 4:05 pm

need to know about the company to comment on the logo..what if it doesn’t fit the companys description of services?

Nov 11, 2009 at 4:45 am

Knoll is a modern furniture company – they are very big in the corporate interior design world. If you’re sitting in a nice workspace, it’s probably 25% likely that it’s Knoll. I didn’t know they gave gifts. Good logo.

gr8 work , simple and amazing.

This design is exactly like Crate & Barrel. https://www.crateandbarrel.com/. Not very creative in my book.

This is an outstanding example of great logo design, its simple, clean, unique, memorable, scalable, and creative. I love this one. Excellent work on this logo design.

It’s quite ironic that this is being compared to the Crate&Barrel logo. Not only was Knoll established well before C&B and played an incomparably more important role in the history of modern design, it’s also like saying that a Mercedes is not creative because it looks like a Chinese rip-off.
Very smart and elegant design, btw.

Classic. Great use of negative space, brilliant design.

I’m hoping this is a *deliberate* reference to Paul Rand’s UPS logo?

Feb 8, 2010 at 6:20 pm

Regardless of whether Knoll has been around longer than Crate and Barrel, Crate and Barrel has the more recognizable name/logo. This logo looks exactly like C&B, not the other way around.

Design doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Yes this is a nice logo, basic and clean, as far as that goes. But it *looks* just like someone else’s logo – maybe even two other logos if you count UPS too. Therefore, it is not a good design.

Katie, design exists on a time-line. A design that preceded a similar approach will generally receive the credit for that idea. You can’t fault a logo for looking similar to another piece that comes “after” it. And since when did being recognizable have anything to do with being good? We all know Google, yet I don’t see that on logo of the day.

Honestly, your arguments are so ridiculous they are mind-boggling.
