The Anvil logo design is purely conceptual. Anvil is a business created to create new businesses. Like an actual anvil is a tool used to create other tools. Anvil is a metaphor. The brand visual is two steps of an infinite pattern that diagrams infinite creation. For example, the center circle is surrounded by a circle of dots. That (center circle surrounded by a circle of dots) is repeated at the red dot. If the pattern is extended out it would repeat into infinity.
The Anvil logo is a perfect example of design style matching the company profile. The idea of the company is conceptual so a simple and clean design puts the idea, the concept, in the forefront. An illustrative or complex logo design would distract from the conceptual meaning of the logo.
