Logo Lounge, one of my favourite logo design inspiration galleries, posts the latest logo design trends each year, based from submissions to their gallery. This morning, the founder Bill Gardner, released the the 2010 Logo Design Report based on the analysis of the latest 35000+ submissions.
Below is a quick snapshot of the 2010 logo design trends:
On this topic of trends, one should not follow trends for the sake of following them. As Bill Gardner points out:
Every year, it’s worth noting that this is a report on trends, not a recipe book of styles. It is also not a finite list: There are other valid trends out there that are not mentioned here.
The report should serve you as an ongoing view of where logo design is headed. The word “trends” in itself can have a very negative cast, but in truth, trends aren’t bad. They reveal our growth. It’s our take on them that allows us to move even further forward.
Do these identity / branding trends effect you or your process? Do you agree with these suggestions? Have you noticed any other trends?’
