With a great logo your brand is remembered by the world, your product is understood by the public, and your potential customers can decide whether to purchase it. In the form of color, shape, and other design elements, logos communicate all of that. Get the basics on how to make your handyman logo tell the story of your business.

The 7 Types of Logos

The different types of logo give your brand a different feel even though they’re all made of typography and images. You also want to make sure you get the right logo, as it will be the first thing new customers will see. Do you know which type of business logo is best for your company? To help you understand the vast world of logos, here are 7 types

1. Monogram Logos (or lettermarks)

A monogram logo or lettermark is a logo that consists of one or more letters, typically an initial. Notice a pattern here? IBM, CNN, HP, HBO… Does that make sense? Their initials are those of a few prominent businesses with long name. They have each turned to using their initials for identifying their brand since there are only 2 or 3 words to remember. As a result, monograms – sometimes called lettermark logos – are the ideal way in which these organizations can represent themselves. As the name suggests, a lettermark is a typography-based logo consisting of a few letterforms, usually an organization’s There is a sense of simplicity to the lettermark. In cases where a brand’s name has long letters, lettermark logos offer a short, elegant way to streamline the branding of a company. How much easier is it to say-and remember-NASA over the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, for instance? Since the focus is on the initials, the font you choose (or create) is very important for getting your logo to be accurate and legible on business cards as well as be on-theme with what your company does. It may also be a good idea to include your complete business name below the logo so that people can start to learn who you are right away if you’re not an established business.

2. Wordmarks (or logotypes)

In a similar fashion to a lettermark or logotype, a wordmark focuses solely on the name of the business. The Coca-Cola and Visa brands come to mind. It is best to use a wordmark logo when a business name is distinct and succinct. As an example, the Google logo is one of the best in this regard. As a result of the name’s catchiness and memorable nature, the logo, when combined with strong typography, helps the brand be recognizable.

Typography plays an important role in branding, just as it does with a lettermark. As the focus of the design will be on your business name, you’ll want to pick a font or create a font that reflects what you do. As an example, fashion labels use clean and elegant fonts to promote their brands, while legal and government organizations usually prefer a more traditional, “heavier” font that presents a sense of authority.

3. Pictorial Marks (or logo symbols)

Pictorial marks (also called brand marks and logo symbols) are graphic symbols , usually made up of icons. Perhaps the first thing that springs to mind when you hear the word “logo” is There’s the Apple logo, the bird from Twitter, the bullseye from Target. Every single logo of each of these companies is so recognizable, and each brand is so established, it is easily recognizable on its own. There is no such thing as a true brand mark. Consequently, it is a difficult logo type to use for businesses with a weak brand recognition, or for those with just started. If you want a pictorial mark, the first thing you need to consider is the image you want. You have invested in something that will endure for the entire life of your company. When choosing an image, you need to consider the following Can you use the deer logo as a play on your name (like John Deere does with theirs)? Can you tell us what the product does with a deeper meaning (think how Snapchat tells us the reason for the ghost)? Would you rather arouse an emotion from your audience (as the World Wildlife Foundation does with its stylized image of a panda, a cute and endangered animal)?

4. Abstract Logo Marks

There are several different forms of pictorial logos, but abstract marks are the most common. Rather than being a recognizable image – like an apple or a bird – it’s an abstract geometric form that represents your company. The BP starburst-like logo, the Pepsi divided circle, and the Adidas flower with stripey lines have all been known as famous examples. In the same way that all logos work well, abstract marks help to convey your brand to the viewer in abstract logos grant you the ability to create something truly unique to represent your brand instead of relying on something recognizable. With an abstract logo, you’re able to convey what your company does symbolically while avoiding having to worry about attracting the attention of prospective clients. By using color and form, you can evoke meaning and cultivate emotions about your brand. (For example, think of how the Nike swoosh implies freedom and movement).

5. Mascots

An illustrated character serves as the basis of a mascot logo. A mascot logo is a great way to create your own brand spokesperson – or spokes-character (?) if you will. It is often colorful, cartoonish, and most fun. You can describe a mascot as a representation of your company’s culture. You should consider them to be your business’ ambassador. The Kool-Aid Man, the Colonel at KFC, and Mr. Peanut, a mascot for Planter’s, are among the most popular. It is great for businesses that are striving to create a wholesome atmosphere by appealing to families and children by using Mascots. Mascots create a great dynamic at sporting events by engaging the audience! Just think of all the mascots at sporting events!

6. The Combination Mark

Logos with combination marks consist of a wordmark and either a pictorial emblem or an abstract symbol. A picture and text can be arranged side-by-side, stacked on top of each other, or integrated together to form A combination mark works well for both text and pictorial markings, and the one-two punch of the text and the icon or mascot will establish your brand visually. Consumers are also likely to connect your name with your brand instantly with a combination mark logo. One day you may be able to rely on a logo symbol alone, and not have to include your name at all times. Additionally, because these logos use letters and symbols together to create an image of their own, they are usually easier to register as trademarks than a pictorial mark.

7. The Emblem

Fonts will be used inside of an icon or symbol to create an emblem logo Seals, crests and badges are some of the most common symbols. Traditional logos often give a lasting impression due to their traditional look and can make a striking impact, which is why they are a top choice for schools, government agencies, or organizations. Logos based on emblems are also very popular with the auto industry. In addition to having a classic style, however, some companies have successfully modernized the traditional logo look by adopting a design that is fit for the 21st century (think of Starbucks’ iconic mermaid emblem, or Harley-Davidson’s They do tend to be more detailed than the aforementioned types of logos, and they are rigidly entwined, so they might not be as versatile as the above types. Creating an intricate logo design will take time and effort and can be difficult to replicate across all brand identities. When it comes to business cards, a busy emblem may shrink down to the point that it’s impossible As far as embroidery of this type of logo on shirts or hats goes, then you’ll need to create a design that is a bit on the simple side, or it will be impossible. So, as a rule, keep your design simple and you’ll walk away with an elegant, stylish look that’ll make you seem like a pro.
