Lately, we are seeing more and more logo designs go back to basics, using simple flat colors and basic geometric shapes integrated into their design. One of the most commonly featured shapes seen in many emerging logo designs includes stars.
Check out the 2018 Olympics Logo
The logo for the upcoming 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang was recently released at a publicly held conference in Seoul. According to POCOG (the PyeongChange Organising Committe), "The first character in the emblem also represents a gathering place where the three elements of Cheon-ji-in – heaven, earth, and human – are in harmony. The second character symbolises snow and ice, as well as the athletes’ stellar performances."
This logo emphasizes simplicity, flat colors, and basic geometric shapes in it's design.

Trend: Ribbon & Folded Design
We are seeing more companies want to reflect the qualities of ebb and flow in their logos, and one of the best ways to represent dynamism is to use a ribbon. Ribbons naturally flow and move every which way as the wind changes. In this day and age, things are constantly changing so fast, which is why people are probably trending toward ribbon logo designs, because they move and adapt to changes without compromising their integrity.
Check out the new Mall of America Logo
The idea behind the new Mall of America logo was to create "an identity to reflect the dynamic experience of MOA™. Far more than a logo, [the artist] designed a ‘living’ brand with the ability to evolve as Mall of America grows… always new."

This logo was recently designed and created to flow naturally, and blend colors to give the effect of flow, and the concepts of "trade and return" that are deeply integral to the company. I love the aspects of ribbon and flow incorporated in this design, as well as the blending of colors.
