Web 2.0 style logo is the fastest growing styles for logo design. There is no translation of what a web 2.0 style logo should look like. Like it or not web 2.0 designs has had a brilliant impact in the field of designers. Ever since web 2.0 has made its fling in 2003, it had turned the prospects of many websites. Modern websites mostly prefer web 2.0 technologies that demand user interface and hint to an improved form of World Wide Web. It supports technologies such as weblogs, social bookmarking, wikis, podcasts, RSS feeds (and other forms of many-to-many publishing), social software, Web APIs, Web standards and online Web services to bring a significant change in web usage. Designs made with web 2.0 versions are yet simple but professional. The designs have a large text with lots of white space in the content area and the designs are in large type and feel open and relax. The text has a brighter color and lighter background with web 2.0 styles.
Simplicity is probably the main factor determining if a Web 2.0 logo is nice. To contribute to simplicity combination of font colors and style plays a major role. Fonts need to be blatantly big with smooth gradients and its utmost important to get the right font style, else it’ll just don’t look right. In a nutshell, good font style with the combination of the right colors made up a good Web 2.0 logo.
But among all that, some designers have failed to maintain the consistency and proper concepts in designing a logo, while some designers have created a fabulous design. A designer by hobby is wasting time, energy and resources. Even if he/she creates a design, no one will buy it. According to me,” designer without creativity is dejection”.
I hear the phrase “web 2.0” thrown around very loosely, with different meaning. It seems like each designer has their own idea of what it means. Web 2.0 is not a style it’s a mode of designing sites that are more interactive, have better functionality and are dynamic. The term “web 2.0” is often unknowingly misused by those who use it to mean a graphical style. The term “web 2.0” actually refers to certain technologies (Ajax, Ruby.etc.). I can really say that there’s a new trend in graphic design, the web 2.0 design?
If I have a mouse, and a clicking finger is A-o.k., then I can create images that will be the envy of all my visitors and onlookers. With web 2.0, I can create a design without wasting lots of time. I know that creating a design takes a lot of time, money and lots of patience. If I follow any tutorial, use graphic editors of any sort, I will become over-qualified but broke, time wasting internet graphics designer just like the countless others out there. The best solution is the use of web 2.0 versions in creating my designs.
The characteristics web 2.0 logos have are, they have bright colors, color levels, cute, icons, 3D effects, shiny surfaces, shadows and reflex ions. The fonts are simple and most of them rounded. In some cases the color levels, shines and 3D effects are also applied to the lettering. These effects must be used very carefully, because we have seen countless cases where the logo designer uses these elements to make la logo look good but neglects to give the concept the necessary attention it deserves.
I create that glossy, refection, single gradient, double outline, shadowed and really cool image in less time with a few simple clicks of the mouse.
I hope most of you agree with me so far.
