Font and Colors

Duracell Emblem

The brand name originates from the term “durable cell.” The brand’s symbolism is the name, which, over the years, has been executed in different fonts.

As the emphasis of the emblem is on the text, its evolution is the change in the style of the inscription. As a result, the first versions of the logo are dominated by the Futura font. In the second, on the contrary, Delta Bold dominates with a characteristic curved “R.” These fonts share the fact that they are grotesque and sans-serif. The color palette is monochrome, consisting of the classic combination of black (letters) and white (background).

Duracell Symbol

The absence of sharp corners symbolizes the safety of the batteries, while the black, white, and copper colors convey their strength, reliability, and superiority.
