Bombardier Logo

“Bombardier” is not only the name of the company but also the last name of its founder. The designers incorporated this word into the logo using a simple, bold sans-serif font. The inscription looks solid, as all letters are capitalized and consist of strokes of approximately the same thickness. They are stretched vertically, so they do not seem visually heavy. The main color of the emblem is black – a win-win option to convey a business approach and professionalism.

Capital letters resemble small skyscrapers, creating a sense of growth and ambition. Black color, as a business suit for the emblem, allows it to look very strict and ready to take on any challenge.
