2. Throwback Logos

Over the past few years, we’ve seen brands return to their roots with rebooted versions of their classic logo designs.

7. Ditching Containers

Just as this year’s logo design trends include clearer fonts and stripped-back branding, we’re also seeing brands free their logos from containers.
