Combo Mark

It’s the combination of both word image/icon into a single mark. It allows you to brand your company’s name, with an image. You can either use your logotype/word mark, or the combo mark to express your brand message while both will be associated as one. Visualise how your name and symbol work together, and yield the advantages and flexibilities of the combo mark.
