2.      Letter-based Logo Design:
This refers to logo designs that base their design on the first letter of the business’s name  – either the letter itself can be used (using a great font) or the letter can be created into another image.

3.      The “Here” Logo:
“Here” logo designs have an element of GPS and co-ordinates within the design. Much like the Google Maps tear-drop pointer, many brands are now following suit and creating their own images around this concept.

4.      The Crossed Logo Design:
This design can be used for almost any industry – take two aspects of your business, create an image for each, and then cross them over one another – the same can be done for words.
