Nakayoshi or translated as Friend, is a brand design for a ramen shop that feels more traditional and simpler. The aesthetic image is the ramen bowl illustration. It is particularly simple with the orange-ish color, which helps implement the warmth of the serving. At the same time, every other element, from the Lettering to the small wave image, is there without making the logo overwhelming.
5. TOKEN RAMEN
Created by MADE in MIND | https://www.behance.net/gallery/158509755/TOKEN-RAMENBRAND-DESIGN
The first thing that impresses the audience might be the concept. The design has the name and is presented as it is. It uses a neat formal font for the lettering name. As the illustration, it uses a token-looking image, which is a circular shape with a flower image inside. It resembles a coin or a token. It is against traditional style but still effective.
6. Rockettow Noodle
Created by Albaari Kemal | https://www.behance.net/gallery/100519037/Rockettow-Noodle-Brand-Identity
Rockettow noodle is probably one of the unique representations of a ramen brand. It is actually what the name said, a rocket tow noodle. The symbol is something that will fit through modern and digital media, especially with its image of a rocket and noodle. The simple oval shape and the lettering are easier to perceive, and the red-white color stands out.

Created by Casandilax Studio | https://www.behance.net/gallery/151371061/Logo-Ramen-Hai

9. Bōru Ramen Bar
Created by Preston A Brigham | https://dribbble.com/shots/3038127-B-ru-Ramen-Bar
The first impression of the logotype design is not that it stands out. It feels more common as it uses the casual font in a box style plus red and white color. But the small detail people can miss is the fact that the brand is a Ramen Bar. So, the red-boxed font is somewhat fitting. It is also pretty simple and memorable.
Created by Charaf robyo | https://www.behance.net/gallery/147814427/modern-logo-Ramen-Trains
The brand concept of Tabetetsu is a Ramen & Trains, most likely a ramen menu to eat on the train. The best thing is the name, as the Tabetetsu is translated as eating iron. From the concept and the name, the illustration follows through. It resembles a ramen bowl with a train frame. Along with the white and gold color, this is a well-executed design.
11. OM Ramen
Created by Katarzyna Gazarkiewicz | https://dribbble.com/shots/4822041-Ramen-restaurant-logo
OM ramen sure is more modern and literal. The design only uses a logotype, but a small alteration on the M is the key image. The M looks swirly to represent the noodle. It is simple, but sure, it will help reimagine the menu. The rest of the concept has a pastel color, with the lettering in brown and the background in cream.
12. Kaori Ramen Ya
Created by Natália Fanchini | https://www.behance.net/gallery/151919769/Kaori-Ramen-Ya-branding
Ramen ya kaori feels more down to earth thanks to its design concept. It has a badge-shaped logo, which comes out with a simple illustration in the center. From the image, you can see that the illustration resembles a bowl of ramen captured from a bird's-eye view. It's drawn in a line art style, simple and direct. Which is why it works perfectly for a stamp.
13. Mecha Noodle Bar
Created by chuck brooks | https://dribbble.com/shots/3729277-Mecha-Noodle-Bar
Chuck Brooks makes a unique, modern, and simple design using only monograms. It comprises the name Mecha. But the design is provided using almost-abstract symbols. It appears like a rectangle composed of four letters in a geometrical shape. It almost feels like a traditional family stamp, which makes great sense for Japanese shops. It's weird, but it simply works.
Created by Mortise Design llc. | https://www.behance.net/gallery/33555875/NOROSHI-*image
Noroshi logo will be the best example of a combination of traditional imagery and modern intake. The visual aspect comes from the simple illustration of a smoke signal on top of top ranges, which is also used as a beacon. Beacon itself is the meaning of Noroshi. Thus a fitting image to use. The lettering is neat as it combines both Japanese letters and romaji.
15. Ramen Bowl
Created by Drew Rios | https://dribbble.com/shots/2905605-Ramen-Bowl
Going for the straight translation, the Ramen Bowl logo feels more like an icon. Its illustration is a simple geometric shape looking like a ramen bowl. It looks like a bowl, chopsticks, noodles, and the topping. Simple but direct is the first impression. It also uses Japanese katakana that appear in white on top of a light blue background.
16. Future Ramen
Created by A Friend of Mine | https://www.behance.net/gallery/83042679/Future-Ramen
Future ramen from the get-go creates a unique impression. From the concept, the future ramen uses lines for the lettering that appear like a ramen noodle. But to stay relevant with the name and mood, it uses a cursive font with more straight edges. Hence, appears like a future naming and graphic illusion thanks to the black and white color.
Created by Richard Smith | https://dribbble.com/shots/5970258-Kitsune-Logo
Kitsune, in Japanese, refers to that of a fox. But there is also a menu called kitsune ramen or fox noodles. So the name is relevant. The logo itself goes with a more modern intake, using a neat font and replacing the U with the ramen bowl. The color choice can either fit luxury items or relate to blue ramen bowls.
18. Omani Ramen
Created by Charles Honig | https://dribbble.com/shots/4754735-Omani-Ramen-Alternate-Logo
Omani Ramen has a unique illustration of the ramen packaging. Instead of using a bowl, the ramen is served in a box. This ramen logo design might be part of the identity and also the distinctive menu. As a ramen shop, this unique illustration can help entice the audience's attention or curiosity. Especially with the simple color, line art, and clear identity.
19. Miso Fast Ramen
Created by Arpita Mitra | https://www.behance.net/gallery/164366241/Miso-Fast-Ramen
Looking at the design concept and illustration, the logo surely gives a fast-serving option. The red color can represent warm or speedy services.

20. Tamashii Ramen
Created by CAXA estudio | https://www.behance.net/gallery/88471307/Tamashii-Ramen
In this ramen logo design, you can see that providing the impression and identity as a ramen shop does not have to be so stoic and direct. The Tamashi logo plays with its lettering. As you can see, the A, M, and A part of the name is drawn to resemble a noodle being picked by the chopstick. It is simple but also understandable.
21. Qoyo Ramen
Created by joshua robins | https://dribbble.com/shots/7012427-Qoyo-Ramen-Logo
One of the pretty common stereotypes of Japanese graphic style is always cute and manga-like drawings. Qoyo Ramen uses those ideas and makes a mascot of a cute walking ramen bowl. This kind of mascot sure helps create a more friendly image. It also uses a blue and pink scheme which gives the best contrast for the overall design model.
22. Kita Ramen
Created by Ross Bruggink | https://dribbble.com/shots/3280248-Signage
For the first impression, Kita ramen gives a luxurious impression. The line art of a rabbit hopping and the neat skewed name on top shout out luxury. But is it a good logo for a ramen shop? Considering the image and how the implementation was, it is likely a high-end ramen shop brand. So it fits the target image.
23. AKUMA Ramen
Created by Peter Zaitsev | https://dribbble.com/shots/11020498-AKUMA-Ramen
Akuma is translated as a devil. Hence the use of a crazy-looking font fits the name. The design itself does not show a strong relevance to the ramen industry. Instead, it goes with the fancy logo design to appeal to the corresponding audience. In this case, the gravity-like lettering, yellow color, and effect will help the brand be suitable for younger spectators.
24. kyoto ramen
Created by Febrian Hidayat | https://dribbble.com/shots/6257890-kyoto-ramen-shop
Kyoto Ramen shop has a beautiful illustration that depicts the image of a bowl of ramen under the sunset.

It has immaculate lettering and a color combination of black, white, plus red.
25. Ramen Fortune
Created by Jake Warrilow | https://dribbble.com/shots/20752020-Ramen-Fortune
Ramen fortune is one of the designs that go with the classic or even vintage graphic style. It is very apparent from the color choices, the shape, and the graphic concept. It combines an old-styled drawing of the ramen bowl. The font is pretty much bold sans serif. And the whole logo is inside a circular or badge shape.
26. House Of FU
Created by Lucas Jubb | https://dribbble.com/shots/11084684-Ramen-Bar-Pop-Up-Logo
House of Fu uses blue and white, which gives a more professional and cool impression. It is one of the logos that feel like it was made for an old yet luxurious ramen brand. All thanks to the minimalized approach, which you can see from the simple shape of the roof on top of the name. Neat lettering and small Japanese writing for clarity.
Created by Katelyn Berkshire | https://dribbble.com/shots/6405042-Ramenup-Japanese-Noodle-Bar-Logo
At first glance, the beautiful drawing of the ramen bowl, shape, and line art engage the audience to think further. The symbol is sure to take people's attention as it developed with the golden rules of drawing. You can see the shape and line direction. Plus, a small red dot as a highlight. To follow the design, it also uses a simple font to balance the concept.
28. Clever Koi
Created by Mark Johnston | https://dribbble.com/shots/12396112-Clever-Koi-Shirt
It is clear to see that clever koi is a ramen brand or ramen shop which is established in the USA. It feels more appropriate since the illustration has an image of a ramen bowl with the koi inside, plus cacti and the desert around it. And sure, it is a shop in Arizona. The design gives a vintage and Western style that appears from the illustration, color, and font choice.
29. GUN JA RAMEN
Created by X2 Finest Design | https://www.behance.net/gallery/93615087/GUN-JA-RAMEN
Like many other logos, every design has its way of representing the brand or image. Gun Ja Ramen decided to use the authentic kanji calligraphy style as the main visual. It feels more traditional since the designer adds a red stamp image and uses a brown-colored paper background. This kind of design will give more literal meaning and appreciation for the origin.
30. Slammin Ramen
Created by Colin Gauntlett | https://dribbble.com/shots/7802946-Slammin-Ramen
Another modern interpretation and imagery of the ramen brand came from Slammin Ramen. In this design, the designer uses an animated or motion full image of the ramen bowl. It is illustrated as the ramen is moving around and slamming its foot. Everything gives a more youthful impression, from the bold lettering, funky illustration, stand-out color, and branding name. It sure is attractive.
