A good logo intelligently uses the following elements:
Figure: the form, shape or outline of something in a composition. Usually a human, but sometimes an animal or an object.
pattern: lines, colors or shapes repeated.
balance: when composition appears unified; creates a sense of stability
symmetry: having both sides exactly the same
