  • Vilma says:

    Great article, very useful for clients or beginners in the industry (and even for non-native speakers in the agencies, who meet the terms for the first time).
    If I may, I would suggest that, while it is true that a logo is very functional and one must take into account the usage to decide upon the needed form, it is also a matter of how new a brand is. While you can have get to use only (or predominantly) a brandmark for brands such as Shell or Nike, for instance, it is not advisable to do that with a new brand, irrespective of how beautiful the design is.
    In this case, while a full branding book should be developed, with all the versions that may be used, the book should be an appendix to a proper communication strategy and plan, where the milestones in the usage of the types of logos should be included.
    By that I mean a brand needs to meet certain awareness objectives in order to start intensively using very symbolic logos. Honestly, one of the most disappointing feedbacks for a client (and a good agency) is: „Oh, beautiful blue bird, yes, I remember it. Sorry, no idea what it stands for.”

    • Megan Schaulis says:

      Vilma, Thank you for your thoughtful comment. We completely agree that until brand awareness is well established a brandmark should not be the primary logo in use. They can be a helpful additional format, perhaps for internal use where the audience is entirely aware of who is being represented. We also agree that brand standards/a brand book should include a clear system of when and where each logo format should be used. Thanks again for reading and commenting!

    • I can’t think of a company that jumped the shark on this issue worse than Starbucks; they still have about 20 years to go before they can do it with grace.

  • Hey @Admin,

    Very Informative and great post about “Logo Terminology in Depth”. love to share with others.

  • I’ve also seen brandmarks/logomarks called “symbol” and “bug.” I’ve heard symbol more often than the others. It just depends, I think, on whether you’re working for an agency and a client’s marketing team, or whether you’re independent and working with companies that are unfamiliar with marketing and branding.

    • Megan Schaulis says:

      Jeff- We agree! While it’s helpful to know some “textbook definitions,” we often use real-world terms like symbol or icon when talking to clients. We frequently hear people use “logo” to mean brandmark as well, for example: I don’t need a logo, just a way to handle the text of my name.

    A wordmark logo is a powerful branding tool. By relying solely on typography, it conveys a brand’s essence with simplicity. This clean and focused approach ensures immediate recognition and lends a timeless quality to the logo, making it a versatile choice across various platforms and industries. The art of crafting a distinctive wordmark lies in balancing creativity and legibility, leaving a lasting impression on the audience.
