Ever wondered how designers decide on the placement of a brand’s logo on the homepage of a website?
The logo usually serves as a way to help you find yourself back to the homepage in an instant after some navigation. It is often found in three places on a page: on the left, in the center, and on the right, although this is rare.
Creative Market has narrow down and focus on left-aligned logos vs centered logos and how this seemingly “small” change in placement can have a massive impact on the site’s user experience.
In a recent study, they concluded that centered logos hurt site navigation. The study author recommends that all logos on a site should lean left because we consistently read from left to right and traditionally, logos have always been positioned on the left-hand side of pages.
Here are the sites that nail it when it comes to good logo placement. For the full article, head over to

Infiniti. Nissan’s luxury vehicle division places its logo way to the very left of the page, in a very striking fashion.
