So what does 2016 hold for logo design? No one can be 100% sure, but we've picked some of our favourite trends that we hope to see more of in the future.

Typographic Designs

A typographic logo is typically extremely basic, featuring only the company name, sometimes with the addition of a small logo or shape.

Line Drawings

Logos using line drawings are also becoming popular. Above is a very basic example, however, talented designers can create beautiful illustrations from these lines.

Retro Logos

Classic and retro styles are in at the moment, so we're seeing an increase in logos in a similar style. With these logos, it's common to see mocked ageing marks like dust and scratches.
