After bemoaning the quality of the new Amber Valley Logo yesterday, I took a look at neighboring council logo’s, to see what they are offering.
So here is my tour of Derbyshire via the medium of council logo’s starting in the south…
For me it’s starting on a high, South Derbyshire District Council stick with a traditional coat of arms with a couple of big cats as supporters.
I like: As coats of arms go, it quite simple and the green is great
I don’t: It’s pretty tricky to scale down
Derby City Council
Derby has a very abstract logo. It’s one I like, quite a lot, I think it’s a stag and ram, which has been smartly taken from the coat of arms.
I like: The abstract logo
I don’t: The colours grate and the type doesn’t seem part of the whole

A logo could cost anywhere from nothing to a six-figure sum and over!
You’re not here to be given a huge ballpark figure, so, along with an idea to be more succinct and direct, logo design starts from £500.
