Letter Mark: Let's take one example: Have you seen the logo of HBO(Home Box Office). It is used when your company name is too long. It is also the full form of your company name.

Brand Mark: Brandmark is combined with icon and WordMark. Just look at one example like Apple. They used icons and WordMark in their logo. More Examples: Nike, Starbuck, etc. BrandMark is not used when your company is newly established. 

Abstract Logo Mark: Abstract logo mark is used as a symbol. Have you seen the shapes of Nike, Addidas, Coca Cola, etc? Your abstract logo mark has provided feelings of people. The abstract logo mark isn't used when your company is started.

Mascot: Mascot is not a part of the logo but it is used for branding. Just take one example Mac Donald there is one character of a founded person in a logo. This type of logo is used when your company represents family, kids, etc.

The technique of Logo Design

You can earn money by logo design is very simple. If you ever design a logo for any brand then you can easily make any type of logo. Now logo design is the most demanding the worldwide. Many big companies pay a lot of money by making a simple logo. 
By starting logo making you need to understand the brand color of the company. And your logo provides feelings of the company. 

Choose up to 3 colors on the logo: The company uses only two or three colors of their brand logo. So you need to conscious while making a logo. You need to choose the brand color of the company. Many colors provide different feelings. Red colors provide feelings like dangers, Yellow colors feel hungry so many hotels use yellow colors, And blue and green colors provide feels of trust so many institutes use these colors. So, before design a logo, you need to choose the color of the company. And there are two types of colors: primary and secondary colors. 

Primary Colors: Under primary colors, Red, Yellow,  and Blue are included. Primary colors attract people rather than secondary colors Because primary colors are more cynical than secondary colors. Before you begin to make a logo you need to choose one primary color of the logo. All the companies choose at least one primary color for their brand.

Secondary Colors: Under secondary colors, Orange, Purple, and Green are included. It is made by mixing primary colors. Secondary colors play important roles while making a logo. You can use at least two secondary colors in a logo. Now secondary colors are used in making modern posters or designs.

First Design On Papers: Before you begin to design a logo in illustrator you need to design a logo on paper. You can try different types of logos then finally choose one design. You can also get ideas of logos from many websites like Harchful, Designhill, Canva, etc.
