Is the new Burberry logo the start of an exciting design trend?

For the last few years, it's felt like logo designs have all been moving in the direction. Flat, minimal, sans-serif wordmarks have been the order of the day for what feels like forever – but Burberry has just bucked the trend with a rebrand that looks to the past whilst also feeling like a step forwards. 

Burberry was one of the first fashion houses to introduce a minimal, sans-serif typeface back in 2018, but it's just gone back to its roots with a new "archive-inspired" sans-serif look. And the company has also resurrected its 1901 '‘Equestrian Knight Design’ (EKD) symbol for good measure. (Looking for inspiration? Check out the best logos of all time.)
