10 logos from 2019 that defy design trends

Anyone who’s kept an eye on logo design in 2019 knows the score. When it comes to redesigning a major brand’s logo, the standard route is to take the existing design and simplify it in as many ways as you can. 

If it features multiple colours, reduce that to just one. If it has ornate, expressive or cartoony typography, change that to a more streamlined font. If it has graphic elements, remove them, or at least make them look more geometric and app icon-like. If there are serifs, swap them out for sans-serifs. You get the idea.
