One of the many changes we saw in 2016 was in logo designs. Learn more about the logo trends of the year! Plus, tips for buying the perfect logo stamp.

2016 Trends


In general, companies are adopting logos that speak for themselves. Whether it’s the font, color and/or shape, less is definitely becoming more. A simple logo positively lacks clutter and represents a brand and products that are straightforward.


San Serif Fonts

These typefaces don’t use serifs, or the small lines at the end of each character. Popular fonts within this category include Arial, Helvetica and Geneva. Studies show sans serif fonts are more difficult to read. This trend goes back to the desire to be simple.


Geometric Shapes

Most popularly, the circle, but no matter what the shape, the more simple the geometry the better.pinterest-logo

Wide Logos

This trend goes against the grain as designers generally prefer a condensed or balanced look. However, nothing lasts forever and many large companies (ie: SpeedTree and Oculus) are adjusting their logos and surpassing borders.


We saw many new trends for logos in 2016, but there are a variety of interchangeable design styles that refuse to be ignored. Some of the styles growing in popularity seem to be Ombre, Linked, Dog Eared, Corners, Line Dash, Curls and Letterblock – just to name a few.
