TOP LOGO TRENDS OF 2014

It is not already a secret for everyone that well-designed logo has power to distinguish your brand among competitors and make it more catchy for public attention. In daily life we usually come across with thousands of different logos. Logotype is always associated with particular company, it is integral part of company’s image and brand name.

Creation of logo design is an inception of development new firm brand style. So it is hard task for designer to create logo, which doesn’t run to extremes and noways looks too fussy or too primitive.

Let me give you short overview of key tendencies in logo design which can be used by designers. The winner trend of 2014 is mobile-friendly labels. This fact pushes logo design to simplicity and airiness. The most popular themes are hand-writing, flatness, clarity, closeness to nature, symbolism… And also bees, pompons, acorns, badges and so on :)

I would like to remind that these trends do not bind designers to follow them blindly. It’s just a few guiding rules to be aware of in order to reach new level in logo creation. Let us look at each of them in details.

 

2 colors, please

This year minimalistic trends continue to be in top. Bicolor logos keep viewer attention and don’t bother eyes. As good as it gets.

Geometry shapes

Striving for simplicity through figures is obvious. Designers still manage to create a stylish and at the same time unique artworks using symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes as well as short texts. Moreover, geometrical forms are proved to be grasped faster by human eyes and brains than other images.

Mono line & hand writing

Cross-lines, crests, flags and ribbons have received completely new look due to using of mono-weight line writing. To achieve maximum contrast logos are often composed with black and white. It is commonly agreed that thin line is an attribute to both sophistication and versatility.

Flat Facets & Animals

Since an eagerness to create volume effect for the viewer left for nothingness, designers began to play fair. Facets constructed of several transparent layers tend to be one of the most popular pattern.

Waves

We are humans of digital age… Look at the picture below. What was your first thought? Free WiFi? 😉

3 Hooped lines don’t stand only for wireless connection. But association sent out by this image subconsciously makes viewer to think about accessibility, comfort and desire to make a contact.

Round badges

Circle is the most important and widely spreaded geometry form. It has neither beginning nor end, as well as direction and orientation. Hence, it is often associated with both infinity and completeness. As you may see, logo badge always stays winning.
