Badge themed logos are great when wanting to portray an old fashioned feel and can fit into any type of business.Commonly used in the military as decorative elements to represent strength and authority, badges and emblems have inspired logo designers, and it is not uncommon now to see logos with shapes that look a bit like military patches. By looking back in history, we see that this is actually not a new trend. In fact, some of the earliest “versions of logos” where code of arms or family escutcheons painted on the shields that knights used in battles.
An Emblem is an object or a representation that functions as a symbol. Much info can be placed inside the badge/emblem like establishment date, location, address, tag line, and much more. Many businesses use emblems as their permanent logo design. Some logo designers frown upon this, because the lack of simplicity/the argument of visibility when re-sized, while others praise it. The bottom line is that if you attack this task correctly, the outcome should be beautiful.
