Meaning and History

Nintendo Logo History

The Nintendo emblem has changed many times – both globally and in a minor way.

What is Nintendo?

It is a Japanese manufacturer of video game consoles and video games, the creator of the famous Mario franchise. It entered the market long before the advent of computers – in 1889. His first products were hanafuda cards; then, the company produced toys for children.

1889 – 1950

Font and Colors

Nintendo Emblem

The manufacturer’s trademark contains the word “Nintendo.” For those who do not know Japanese, it sounds like nonsense. It is based on three hieroglyphs, which are deciphered as “the temple of free hanafuda.” After all, the company’s first product was precisely hanafuda – one of the varieties of a deck of playing cards.

The logo is written in a personalized font. It features rounded sans serif letters and a small horizontal stroke at the “t.” Throughout history, the palette has changed several times. Commonly used colors are red, black, and white. The same combination is presented in the current seventeenth emblem.

What is Nintendo’s current logo?

The current Nintendo logo is a wordmark surrounded by a white line in the shape of a rounded rectangle and placed inside a red rectangle. The company name uses Museo Sans sans serif font. All letters are white.

Why is the Nintendo logo red?

Red reflects Nintendo’s heritage as many of the company’s logos used to be red. The game console maker has returned to classic branding by ditching the boring white and gray color scheme.

Who made the Nintendo logo?

Nintendo has not disclosed who designed its current logo. It is only known that such a graphic sign has already been used before: it first appeared in 1970 and then returned several times with minor changes.
