Simple designs work best for this because designs with too much detail may not translate well on the limited space you get for the album icon. But just because your design is simple, doesn’t mean that it has to be boring. To make things interesting, you can use abstract art in your design for a unique look. You can also get creative and use adorable logos featuring animal families.

Letter

We’ve seen a lot of illustration and icon designs. For this section, we are going to discuss letter logos that let you be more direct with typography.
