Logo Styles of 2009
Bill Gardner, the man behind the LogoLounge book series you’ll likely find on the desks of most graphic designers reports on the styles he sees emerging in 2009. Currently readying another volume of LogoLounge, Bill has compiled fifteen categories that the bulk of logos he’s reviewed fall into. He recently posted the list with a few examples on CreativeReview. While his review doesn’t provide an overall summary of trends, commenter Dani Roberts seemed to get close with “less simplicity, more humanity.”
The above collection called ‘Concealed’ are illustration based logos that use both positive and negative space. Each has contains a hidden image that adds to the meaning of the logo.
