Logo is short for logotype. It is a uniquely designed or lettered word. It often includes a word and a mark.
To distinguish between the logotype and the symbol that often accompanies the type, I use the term mark.
A brand is the way the public perceives a company, product or service. A brand exists in the mind of the consumer.
