Meaning and History

Iberia Logo History

The company’s debut logo is very laconic. But over a long time of its existence, it has often changed, sometimes acquiring a radically different form.

What is Iberia?

Iberia is the largest and oldest Spanish airline, recognized as one of the safest in the world. It was founded in 1927 and has been part of the Irish-British-Spanish holding company International Consolidated Airlines Group since 2010. The airline offers domestic and international flights to dozens of countries, using modern technology to improve service quality, such as providing electronic boarding passes and in-flight internet access.

1927 – 1939

During the initial period of work, the main focus was on good readability. That is why the first brand name is minimalist: it contains only the word “Iberia,” written in black capital letters.

1939 – 1941

Font and Colors

Iberia Emblem

The development of individual symbolism began with a simple version and went a long way, stopping again at a simple one. Indeed, after completing several stages with a complex design, the choice again fell on a minimalistic logo. Leaving behind the globe with parallels and meridians, ribbons, flight signs, broad letters, and geometric shapes, the company executives chose the text version with a small icon. Interbrand designs corporate identity and logo. The emblem consists of two leaf-like strokes formed from the letter “B,” which are now located to the right of the word “Iberia.”

Custom logo typeface based on a sans serif font from the Sans Serif category. The letters are convex, more precisely – curved to the sides, which is seen in the example of “I,” which has a barrel-shaped shape. The color palette is based on a gradient transition from dark to light. It consists of several shades of red and yellow.
