Assassins Creed is a multi-profile and multi-platform video game created by Ubisoft Montreal (France). It started in the 2007th year and since then has received many sequels, the last of which is dated the 2018th year. The game was developed by Patrice Desile, Jade Raymond, Corey May. They made an action-adventure with open action. As a result, there was a role-playing shooter, a walker with elements of parkour.
Meaning and History
The Assassins Creed logo appeared in 2007, at the same time as the video game debuted. The changes that he went through are completely insignificant and did not affect the appearance. There were no cardinal changes in his history. He always remained the way the developers introduced him. Each new option corresponds to the region or country in question in the plot. There are four versions in total.
2007 – 2010
On the debut version, the phrase “Assassin’s Creed” is located in two levels: the top line is black, the bottom is red. “A” and “S” in the first word are beaten the same way: they are larger than the rest of the characters and seem to frame the name. The second element is much smaller, but the letter space in it is wider. The background for the inscription is a light gray metronome with a drawn designation of a moving arrow.
2010 – 2012
In the next version, the designers removed the background graphic sign, replacing it with white, and the word “creed” was painted black.
2012 – 2013
In 2012, the bottom line got a burgundy color. Also, the developers added two gray sidelines to it (one on each side) and reduced the letter space.
2013 – present
The current version differs from the previous one only in the color of the word in the lower tier: the designers again made it black.
The famous sign in the form of an inverted metronome appeared in the 2007th year. It was created by one of the offices of Ubisoft. Simultaneously, the logo has a double role: it denotes the video game itself and is a symbol of the Assassins secret organization (it is mentioned in the game). Some people think that a brand name consists of two letters: “A” (upper) and “C” (lower).
The debut emblem contains two elements: graphics and text. The first serves as a background and looks pale; the second is located in the foreground and is enhanced by color. The phrase “Assassins Creed” is placed in two tiers. In other versions, only the verbal part is used.
Visually, the logo echoes the theme of travel, which the creators wanted to emphasize. It is perceived as a compass needle that always points forward. And one of the recent series (the game of 2017) is accompanied by an emblem on Egyptian themes. It depicts an all-seeing eye. As in other options, the design exactly matches the genre theme.
Font and color
The inscription “Assassins Creed” is made in an individual font developed by Alphabet & Type. The color scheme of the logo is monochrome. It is usually represented in black letters on a white background.
