Pentagram has created an elegantly simple new logo for Houzz, a leading home remodeling and design website. The new design transforms the letter “h” into a mark that immediately says “home.”
From a Pentagram release: “The design revamps the architectural ‘H’ of the company’s original logo into an easy-to-read symbol that works well as an app icon. With its roof-like slant, the customized letterform reflects how the company helps people make a home uniquely their own, and the distinctive angle and pointed edges of the mark have been extended to system of custom icons for various categories.”
