The first step to take is deciding on what type of logo you’d like for your business. Did you know that there are different types of logos? The most common is wordmark, emblem, and combination mark. Let’s discuss the different types in order for you to decide which is the best.
What it is: Wordmarks are logos solely comprised of the brand’s name. This type of logo is similar to the art of typography by its use of line and curvature in text, in order to convey meaning to a viewer. They also are used to complement color in order to express personality. Wordmarks are designed to be bold, to make up for how it lacks graphics.

How to know if it’s for you: Select a wordmark if you desire a brand logo that omits graphics while incorporating typography.
What it is: Emblem logos are icons withheld in contours which derive from geometric shapes. The brand name is designed within the icon. With emblems, there is emphasis more on the imagery and less on the brand name. Graphic designers have to figure out ways to fit the name in a way that does not interfere too much with the image.
How to know if it’s for you: You should consider an emblem for redesigning your logo if you prefer a greater emphasis on an illustration instead of actual text.
What it is: Combination marks include both a wordmark and either an icon or symbol. Both the icon as well as the word mark are typically sleek and very polished. The intended goal for the logo is that both the icon and the text are so visually bold that, if separated, they independently stand strong. Many brand companies take advantage of its combination mark by splitting up the two components for various products and advertisements.
For example, Nike has a combination mark. Meaning both the wordmark as well as the icon are identifiable on their own when used on various apparel.
How to know if it’s for you: Perhaps you can’t decide whether to get a logo that incorporates imagery, such as an emblem… or one that invokes typography and text, like a wordmark. If you’re unsure about which logo type to pick, then you might enjoy a combination mark. This type allows versatile branding, giving the option to have both icon and word be together or just one of the two.
