Discover Different Types of Logos
Let's start with monogram logos, also called lettermark logos! This type of logo is composed of only letters: the initials of the company or an acronym like NASA. Monogram logos and signature logos should not be mixed as wordmark logos include the entire name of a company and monogram logos are composed of only a few letters.
The emphasis of a monogram logo is the font. Precisely, along with the positioning of the letters, it is often the font that makes a monogram logo stand out. In addition, letters are often duplicated or intertwined to create a unique, recognizable symbol. Monogram logos are generally short, which goes with current trends.

To start, what exactly is a wordmark logo? A wordmark (or signature) logo is a type of logo composed only of the company name. There is no icon or symbol, although there may be a slogan or a few frills. It is the full name of the company that is used and not the initials or an acronym because that would then be a monogram logo. The wordmark logo is one of the most common types of logos.

Let us introduce the emblem logo, also called the symbol logo. It is a relatively simple type of logo. As the name says, it is composed of an emblem. You won't find text in an emblem logo, because if you did, it would be a combination mark logo. This is a type of logo often used by large companies that no longer need to add their name to their logo to be recognized.
Do you have trouble choosing between a wordmark logo and an emblem logo? Why not use both at once by creating a combination mark logo? This type of logo is considered a basic logo. It includes the name of a company and an image. It also offers a lot of flexibility, because depending on your needs you can only use the text or icon. This really is a type of logo to consider and easy to create.
If you choose to make a combination mark logo, you can try different versions by playing with the position of the text and image – symbol at the top of the text, bottom, left, right. Don't forget to choose a font that works well with your icon and vice versa.

The elements of these logos include icons, text, different colors, or a slogan, and each item on a badge or coat of arms logo has a meaning. A badge or circle are the most commonly used shapes for this type of logo.
