When to use a black and white logo

Which businesses should use a simple black and white logo to represent their brand identity? It all comes down to how you want your company to come across to potential customers or clients.

A black and white design can be the perfect type of logo for businesses that want to appear formal and refined. This classic color combination has a timeless, traditional quality and is often associated with sophistication and elegance.

Brands can design a logo in black and white to appear authoritative and powerful. This simple logo style can also look very modern and clean, especially with a mostly white design.

A good logo in black and white will make use of negative space to emphasize text, icons, or shapes. When having a black and white logo designed, invert the colors to create two design options.

Don’t think a simple black and white logo is right for your brand? That’s fine. However, every business with a color logo should also have a plain black and white version available for certain applications. This logo can be a preferable option when color printing costs are prohibitive. It should also be used if your regular logo clashes with a colorful background.
