Modern logos often come in a minimalist and simple way, either by putting a single picture or a brand name without a picture. The Howel logo also follows the rule. Presented in only one main color, the logo comes with the name of the brand only, without putting any picture into it. The eccentric H is added as the symbol, however, to maintain the interest of the people toward the logo.

Besides using a letter mark with a sans-serif font option, this logo also adds a symbol. The symbol is quite delicate, but as you try to see closely, it's like the initial S being stacked in such a way to create a unique flower. The symbol is given different color from the rest so that it becomes the center of attention.

The logo is the ambigram type; you can see how the numbers are created and put together in such a way so that it becomes symmetry. However, you can say that it is a very simple work; it is interesting somehow. If you want to celebrate your birthday or if a company is about to throw a party for its anniversary, then this logo is going to be a perfect choice for such an occasion.
6. The Dynes Media
Created by The Monochromatic Institute | https://dribbble.com/shots/19189875-The-Dynes-Media-Logo
The logo of Dynes Media takes a simple concept. It doesn't play a lot in words; that's what most of the modern logos do; instead, it uses a simple font but is clear enough, and it uses a symbol to enhance the message. The symbol is the representative of the news current, and all the current heads to Dynes Media.

It doesn't have many elements involved in the logo design. It's only the letter K, with a half shadow of it, making it like it's double K. The symbol is perfect for those who have a name that starts with K, like Kiera, Kayla, or else. The initial will be the right choice of a symbol for the brand's name.

First of all, there's something really tickling here; it is the color. The design uses three different colors, which look so different from one another, they are yellow, black, and purple. This contrast has raised's people attention, and surely they won't miss what they will get in the next part.

AI has stricken and shaken the digital world lately. Flipando is apparently a brand name in the digital world of business, which involves AI in its works. Besides mentioning AI on its logo, it also uses the symbol of technology, which is so close to an eye that it can watch and control everything happening in the digital world nowadays. Be careful with what you do because AI is watching!

There are three meanings to be conveyed by the symbol. First of all, the letter K could be the initial of the owner or the initial of the brand name. Then, the logo suggests that the business is trying to raise the bar, and it also means the future thinking that we need to have to get through the world today. Therefore the symbol and the letter K have made a great combination.
Created by Second Eight | https://dribbble.com/shots/17752984-Oriton-Logo-Brand-Identity-Design
Taking a mysterious theme, the Oriton logo comes in black-and-white contrast. To add nuance, a sense of maroon is deliberately presented in the logo as it is used in the background picture. These all will surely raise people's curiosity, and that will be a good point.
Created by Ahteshamul Haque | https://dribbble.com/shots/20754054-square-logo-design
It presents in a very simple way where there's only the brand name with a symbol that represents the name itself. The background used shows the gradation of grey, which is also the color used in the brand name. Using it for a building construction logo could be a perfect option.
Created by Lance | https://dribbble.com/shots/20468439-lapine-Custom-Wordmark
Wordmarks or letter marks could do the magic as well. While some designers believe in the power of a picture, Lapine's logo designer apparently doesn't in favor of that idea. Lance created a wordmark logo without any presentation of a picture or any other ornament for supporting details. Yet, you can see that the logo stands still firmly.
Created by Davor Butorac | https://dribbble.com/shots/19802670-BT-STUDIOS-ON-BEHANCE
It applies the concept of projector light framing. The initial B and T have been in a line of the beam light. This concept will enable people to understand easily what is being told here by the logo.
Created by Antonio Calvino | https://dribbble.com/shots/19553306-Emme-logotype
Simple, nice, but still very; it's how the logo is. What makes it an eye-catching logo is how the designer plays with the letter. A little different touch is given on both the E letter. Not quite significantly styled, but still, it captures the most attention.
Created by VASK®️ Studio | https://dribbble.com/shots/19958698-sonde-Brand-Identity
Sone's logo is an example of one of the most modern and artistic logos ever. Created in a simple concept, the brand simply uses the brand name as the main theme of the logo. The minimalist background has futuristic touch instead of a vintage one, showing that the brand is dealing with something technology-savvy today.

All you can see here is number 5, which is artistically written in three layers. Those who look at it for the first time may read it as literally 5, or even some of them will think that it's 55. Without any detail addition, the logo has opened an opportunity for people to give their impression and interpretation.
Created by Alen Pavlovic | https://dribbble.com/shots/19959645-R1NG-Wordmark
Coming up in a very bright color, the logo surely has its point to get the attention of the people. The word "Ring", using the number 1 to replace the letter "I," is also another point to be considered as the enchanted part. And to sum up, every element that is put in this logo will do good to attract people's attention.
Created by Ahteshamul Haque | https://dribbble.com/shots/20442060-Fourshine-logo-design
The letter mark is again used in this logo, and the designer has put some effort into keeping it interesting by playing with different thicknesses on the letters for variation. What's so good about it is that the symbol enhances the bolded letters as well as shows a thunder sign on it. Two messages in a picture; very nice.

Look at how beautiful the logo is when being hung like that. Though it has a white background, it perfectly matches the white wall where it is hung, and still, the logo is not even fading away by the colors. It even looks very nice and cool there. It's because the brand chooses the right contrast, and it has a great choice of font so that it is clearly seen, even from afar.
Created by Desire Creative Agency | https://dribbble.com/shots/18494514-Smooth-Logo
The gradation of the background is as smooth as its name. The font is perfect, and the addition of an upside smile on the O letter makes everyone smoothly smile as they see the logo.

The background has certainly given a modern and futuristic look here. The choice of color enhances the theme chosen. Another element that you can see supporting this idea is the symbol. The shape it creates has obviously related to the future style of design. Technology development brand is the perfect field to take this logo.

Digital technology has been involving itself in almost every aspect of human life. The Digitech tries to portray this by creating this logo with colorful bubble background meaning that every bubble will take its easy way to get into the human's life.
Created by Dimitrije Mikovic | https://dribbble.com/shots/18978325-GreenTech-Digital-Smart-Solutions
While this logo portrays that technology could also be safe for the environment and can keep green life alive. Some people may think technology development will destroy nature. Therefore, this brand is trying to encounter that thought. It tries to tell people that the technology could be environmentally friendly so that nature won't be interfered with by their presence.

Red is rarely chosen as the background of a logo for the sake of the eye's comfort. But the designer of this logo has been brave enough to take the color and combine it with black to get the right contrast. Besides the color, he also plays with the creation of the letters by styling the fonts. Something has to be done in a wordmark style.
27. Lab 5
Created by Antonio Calvino | https://dribbble.com/shots/18832664-Lab-5
Antonio Calvino doesn't involve various elements in this logo. Being aware that letter marks could be challenging in keeping people's attention, he tries to give a little touch on the number used as the brand name. This little curve he made doesn't significantly ruin all the concepts, so people will still get the clear message.
Created by MD AL AMIN | https://dribbble.com/shots/19272262-O-Logo-Orbitals
Using standard sans serif font on the logo has made it look simple but clear. The only way the designer plays around here is the "O" letter used in the logo. It is given a dim light of green, and it also functions as the symbol of the logo by the addition of a little curve below it. It shows that the brand is ready to orbit and be one of the players in the business.
Created by Lucas Fields | https://dribbble.com/shots/20876412-RUBO-Logotype
Simplicity and clarity are the main goals shown in the logo. The brand name is written in a very bold font with a large size so that there's no space for any other elements to be put. It shows that the logo only focuses on the brand name, and that's what the designer wants from the people. They focus on the brand when they see this logo.
Created by Simon Walker | https://dribbble.com/shots/20839310-Acorn
As you read the brand name, you probably expect to see corn. Well, similarly, the designer has created the logo using a keyboard of a computer and has made it into the shape of a sort of corn. Not only that, an animatic hand is added to press one of the keys as it is a hand taking an ear of corn out of its corncob.
