Math Logos Symbols are becoming increasingly trendy in logo design. Part of this is due to the fact that they (up until recently) are only occasionally used in graphic design and thus seem original and unique logo. Another advantage is that they have a well-defined mean—there is no debate about what a plus sign implies. The following ten logos use math symbols to create interesting, eye catching, and meaningful designs.
Multiply It Media Logo Design
1 This maths symbol logo design takes advantage of a few trends. First, the folded appearance of the image fits in with the stylish origami logos craze we are currently experiencing in the word of graphic design. Second, it is created in black and white and then printed in a variety of colorful palettes. Last, it uses a mathematical symbol. The way the folded paper comes together resembles the multiplication symbol, which ties into the name perfectly. This logo design is very trendy, but has enough classic elements and simplicity to remain relevant over the long term.
Code Maus Maths Symbol Logo
2 Use of symbols in logos that are associated both with math and with computer programming, which ties in beautifully with the name and industry. A small mouse is created from these symbols, creating a witty image that is relevant to the name. Although the writing is rather plain, the use of a 5 for the final S ties it into the name. A serious blue and a sunny yellow provide balance between business and fun.
Plus GSM Logo Design
3 This company has a plus sign to tie into its name, but this mathematical symbol is cleverly drawn to be part of a smiley face. The hand painted look of this image gives a friendly feeling as does the bright colors that are used throughout the logo. The writing is a little more serious to balance an otherwise fun logo design.
4 The fact that this company has nothing to do with mathematics makes its use of a math symbol all the more brilliant. A stylized lemon with a plus sign inside perfectly represents the name, while the color scheme is clearly relevant to the subject. Rounded writing in upper case letters gives a serious yet approachable feeling and allows emphasis to remain on the unique image. It’s hard to picture a way of combining fruit and math, but this logo does so seamlessly.
Add Heart Logo Design
5 This logo design is minimalist and yet as perfect as it can be. The plus sign used for addition is placed next to a heart, with the entire loving heart logo in a Valentine’s Day palette of red and white. These shapes are slightly transparent, giving the image a layered look that is very popular right now. The name is written below in letters that are almost unnoticeable, in a pale gray that has little contrast compared to the rest of the logo design. The thin, lower case letters make the company name even more unobtrusive, allowing the image to get maximum effect.
Virtual Math Teams Logo
6 This collaboration between mathematics graduate students and experienced experts has an obvious reason to use math symbols in its logo design. The initials are created from well known symbols in a clever way, while the overall shape of the logo implies brainstorming. This is a clever logo that is interesting to view and easy to remember, helping to brand the group that it represents.
Factor Logo Design
7 There are several elements that make this logo effective, but its incorporation of the name into a simple, cohesive image is the top one. A plus sign is the center of the image, with F’s layered around it. The use of soft pastels keeps this image from being too severe or mathematical. A little shadowing below grounds the image. The company name is written in heavy black writing that commands attention, which is necessary as there is no way to deduce the name of the company from the image alone.
The National Autistic Society Logo
8 This logo has a mathematical symbol cleverly hidden: that of an infinity sign. This is clever and hopefully won’t be lost on the people who view it. Because this infinity symbol is made of two stylized people, the image is incredibly personal and friendly. Magenta and purple are both colors that appeal to women, who are the most active in this and many other charitable groups. The thin, serious writing creates a feeling of legitimacy that makes the organization feel more trustworthy. In all, this logo is subtle and well balanced, with a math symbol used to good effect.
Math Attack Logo Design
9 Of course there is no place more appropriate for a math logo than a math oriented company. This company focuses on products and services that make it easier to learn math. The image is simple but telling, with a stylized person fighting a person made up of numbers and symbols. Their weapon, of course, is the pencil. Yellow is used because it is the usual color of said pencils, while blue adds a business-like and trustworthy feeling. The lettering is simple and plain to avoid detracting from the interesting and expressive image. It’s almost impossible to view this logo design and not have a very good idea of this business’s field and brand, which makes it a winner.
Human Rights Campaign Logo
10 This nonprofit organization wants to create equal rights for all people, which makes an equal sign very appropriate indeed. In this case, the charity logo goes for a very bold and yet substantial image, with thick lines and a square shape that connotes tradition. The blue and yellow contribute to contrast, but this is not the only reason for their usage. Blue is an ultra-traditional color, which ties into the shape, while yellow is positive and gives the feeling that change and equality are possible.
Sometimes pictures speak louder than words, and these logos are good examples of that rule. Because mathematical symbols often represent an entire concept, they make appropriate additions to many different kinds of logo design.
