Abstract logo designs are more than just shapes and patterns. They are the perfect styles of designs as they allow the business and designers to represent multiple aspects of the brand in a single image. They are also great for those who want to avoid literal imagery and want to go for something more interesting and creative.

Abstract logo designs mostly rely on shapes to represent their meanings. However, they are often paired with typography to spell out the brand name. This approach works really well in the long run for the business’ success as the abstract shape can gain longevity as the brand’s signature logo mark.

Before you decide to represent your brand with an abstract logo shape, here are a few designs to help you get acquainted with them. Explore these 20 unique designs created by professionals and determine which shapes, patterns, and ideas seem the closest to your brand.
