Chapter 16: Abstract and Symbolic Marks

This chapter showcases abstract and symbolic marks, those that are not instantly identifiable. The abstract nature of the mark may intrigue the viewer, with the graphic often representing a brand feeling, attribute, or value. Often, the simplicity of the graphic increases the chances of an abstract and symbolic mark remaining truly timeless.
