Object Based Logo
Object based Logos are designed and inspired by the things we see around our self every day and night. These Logos gives a recreational architecture and a new soul to the non-animate bits and pieces and give them a new look. Object based logos can be seen in various organizations that are known for their creativity and art. Some of the honorable mentions are Apple and Twitter logos.
In these days twist effect is the famous logo design effect added to the Logos to show the elasticity and friendliness. Twist effect also shows the impression of a complete domain in which the organization is setting up its work. It starts and end facing each other vertically or horizontally reflects that the organization never forget its past and by no means leave its loyal customer when they are in peak of success.
Unlike any other logo design, the bracket logo design expresses the relation of trust and equality. It always shows the combination of two equal things and combined them graphically to make them considered as one. Bracketing logo design is the latest logo trend of 2013 and has been used by many web and logo designers when they need to show the meaning of equality and strength. The bracketing design is used by creative and artistic designers because they have to be used in a way that if any of the part separated rests no meaning for the left.
