Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

Logos…The world seems like a colorful pastry with all these lively emblems all around us. No one can deny the fact that a proper logo is one of the simplest ways to create brand recognition because a visual symbol is more memorable than words.

However, when you notice these emblems, you will notice some icons and symbols which are used most repeatedly in today’s logo designing. I have listed few of them and the impact they leave on the viewers mind.


Although the Nike swoosh is one of the oldest and most recognizable logo of the world but nowadays also designers add swoosh to their designs to give it a trendy and contemporary feel and make people remeber it for ages.

To add a universal feel to a logo, designers prefer adding a sign of globe which gains worldwide recognition for your brand/product.

We get to see crests very often in designs, which display or describe arms and badges. Logo designs with crests define the steadiness and stability of a company.

Heart, is the most overly used icon in logo designing and after tat successful New York Logo by Milton Glaser “I Heart NY”, this symbol became a must ingredient for logos.

Funky spirals in logos make a logo look more stylish and fresh. These spirals make the logos more attractive for viewers.

So guys, do you agree with me…don’t you think these symbols/icons are used too often in Logo Designing and seem to stay here for many years to come.

If you think you can add any symbol to this list, you are more than welcome.

    Hey Charlie,
    I really liked the way you compiled such simple symbols of logo designing, which we usually don’t notice. Initals and stcik figures can also be added to this list….wat say?

    I discovered your homepage by coincidence. Very interesting posts and well chosen images.

    There are a bunch of logos that work without text that are much older than the Nike Swoosh.

    The christian cross for example is a great piece of branding. Swasticas, Star of David, pentagrams… all can be seen as branding – symbols that communicate a message about the wearer/ user.

    As you say though… a logo can be both with or without text. I would be interested to know how long a smiley face has been about.

    I love the list! I think it’s the colors that really bring out the best and worst designs despite the icons’ shapes being the most focused item in this case. Interesting.
