Meaning and History

Huawei Logo History

The debut logo arose simultaneously with the company. Over time, it changed several times, but it undoubtedly remained within the framework of the original idea and had approximately the same visual form. It always had narrow or wide lines, an invisible white semicircle in the center, and the name below, executed in a strict font.

What is Huawei?

Huawei is a technology company from China. Since its foundation in 1987, it has been involved in the production of telephone switches. Later, its business expanded to the construction of telecommunication networks and the supply of equipment for cellular operators. Now, the corporation manufactures laptops, smartphones, and other devices.

1987 – 2006

Huawei Logo 1987

This year’s emblem represents the rising sun’s elongated rays, which seem to peek out from behind the horizon. Below them is the inscription “Huawei Technologies,” executed in a classic font. The first letters are uppercase; the rest are lowercase. The legs of “l” and “h,” as well as the dot over “i,” match the height of the capital “H” and “T.”

2006 – 2018

Huawei Logo 2006

This period is legendary in the history of the logo, as the company underwent a redesign. Thin rays have now turned into wide petals. Also, out of 15 elements, the artists left 8, evenly distributing them around the word “Huawei.” The proportionality of the segments remained the same, so the lower side parts look shorter than the central upper ones. Some details were supplemented with highlights to create a three-dimensional effect. The inscription is in uppercase. The letters “U” and “E” were rounded.

2018 – today

Huawei Logo

In 2018, changes mainly affected the upper part of the logo. The color became more saturated and darker. The 3D effect disappeared, so the company logo now looks more solid and strict. This is related to the need to print the logo so that it looks equally good as a label and as an official sign. Guided by this principle, the developers revised the text part and returned “U” and “E” to the previous style – clear, even, and concise.

Font and Colors

Huawei Emblem

“Huawei” in Chinese translation means “flower.” Therefore, the company placed an emphasis precisely on this meaning. Moreover, one of the characters that make up the word resembled the debut version of the logo. Initially, designers tried to link the picture of a blooming semi-bud with many thin petals with an image of the sun. Such a technique indicates an association with upward movement.

But then the image of the flower got a more recognizable picture. As a result, the company’s idea means that something new has begun. The logo’s brand colors have always been the same: black, white, and red, with varying shades.

Huawei Symbol

The 2006-2018 logo uses the Handel Gothic Bold font. It’s a sans-serif font with a characteristic semicircular letter “E,” resembling an inverted “U.” After the 2018 redesign, the font changed: the strokes became thinner, and the rounded letter “E” acquired two straight angles.

The color palette of the logo has always been unchanged. Since the graphic element symbolizes the dawn sun, the rays are painted in several shades of red. The word “HUAWEI” is black, and the overall background is white.
