8. Brush Pen usage in logo designs
Cafes, bars & clubs commonly want a stunning and striking trademark of their platform that gives out an urbane and bold feel of the place. Therefore brush pen is recommended in making the logo designs for these companies. I have seen that toy shops, water companies and baby products/companies prefer their logos to have bolder appeal.

9. Infinite Impression in Logo Design
Logo designs that are closed ended appear to be totally premium and memorable, usually it gives out the picture of infinity—showing continuation and persistence. This is a very good gesture to present it in the logo designs. Yet an ample exploration is needed in this trend of logos.
