The WordPress logo is one of the most iconic tech-related marks in the world, and I decided to create a full set of illustrations celebrating both the logo and the brand.
Why I decided to create a full set of logos for my favorite blogging platform
To me, WordPress has got to be the greatest thing since slice bread. When it came to Norebbo.com way back in the day (2010-ish), I struggled to find the right balance between web development and content creation. Using WordPress set me free from the chores of website maintenance and allowed me to focus 100% of my time on creating new images.
Yeah, I felt free then – and I still do now. And for that I guess I’m what you’d call WordPress nutswinger (I’ll let you figure that out on your own), and I’ve started developing a whole series of images featuring metallic WordPress logos. These images are just the first in this large batch, which contains about 50 total in my archive.
First set of high-resolution 3D WordPress logo concepts
My first batch features that much-loved WordPress logo situated into my Object Icon series. Each feature a silver and gray WP logo standing upright in front of:
- Desktop calendar
- Paint can
- Automotive wheel and tire
The second set (featuring the same logo with different objects)
Continuing on my with my metal WP logo set, here are six fresh new images ready for you to download. This time, I’ve rendered the logo with a variety of objects depicting popular blogging concepts such as security, love, and construction.
Yes, most of them are gray. I didn’t realize that until I grouped them together for this upload, but hey – I think it gives them a very clean and simple look. Besides, they are free…so no complaining! Here is a more detailed description of the set:
- An open metallic briefcase on a gray reflective surface filled with an assortment of metal WordPress logos
- A silver WordPress logo inside of a chrome heart floating above a dark surface
- A large metal padlock clamped onto a silver WordPress logo
- A silver and gray WordPress logo standing upright on a pile of fastener nuts, a bolt, and a spring
- A metal WordPress logo standing upright on an automotive wheel and tire on a bright blue reflective surface
- A silver WordPress logo lying upright in a puddle of silver liquid on a gray reflective surface
By the way, if you like this style of 3d rendering and illustration, do be sure to check out my Apple logo set. It’s pretty much the same flavor of stuff…
