Great logo design requires a complex mixture of design skills, creative theory and skilful application. Any designer worth their salt can create a fit-for-purpose logo, but truly mastering all aspects of the craft takes time.

Over the past year, we’ve seen dozens of logo redesigns from globally recognized companies including Instagram, MasterCard, Pandora among others. Many of these redesigns caused a significant social media backlash from designers, fans and brand loyalists.
The vast majority of these redesigns have involved a shift towards minimalism.
