Simplicity is the key factor in this trend. The reason behind the rise in popularity is due to minimal logos being seen as more recognizable for consumers than complicated ones. This helps to increase brand awareness which is vital in business.
A minimalist logo needs to be clean, uncluttered and void of unnecessary details. Using simple shapes to represent a brand is relied upon in minimalism. Negative space is another common tactic used in minimal design to try and optimize the use of space. The best logos are when no explanation is needed to explain what the brand is about, it can be shown just by looking at the logo.
