A logo is the biggest marketing tool that a company has. It is the face of a business, portraying the company’s values, services, aspirations and personality to consumers. The message that it portrays will shape consumer perceptions. Designing a logo that has to say so much about a company is a tricky process. Over complicated designs can be confusing for consumers, which is why a minimalist approach is a great solution.
Minimalism is a style or technique in design that is characterised by extreme simplicity. Void of unnecessary clutter, a minimalistic logo should portray a very clear message that does not require any explanation to be understood. These logos rely on creative typography, simple shapes and clever negative space to tell the story of a brand, rather than over complicated graphics and detailed icons.
Their simple message is also often much more memorable to the consumer than over complicated designs.
Showcased here is a selection of some of the most inspiring minimalistic logo designs. As simplistic as they may appear, they are the perfect examples of logos that say more with less, leaving a strong impression with consumers.
