The redesign of 2018 simplified the Houzz logo yet kept the bright and recognizable lime green black and white color palette. The new logo boasts a combination of a simple and traditional lowercase sans-serif inscription in black, placed on the left from a lime-green emblem, which depicts a stylized house silhouette. The letters in the logotype have a lot of space in and between each other, which makes the whole picture airy, yet keeps the confident and strong look.
