Over the 35 years of its history, the Ryanair logo has become more memorable and straightforward.
Meaning and History
1984 – 1986
The original design depicted an emblem consisting of three letters “R” in red and blue. The word “RyanAir” was composed of very unusual glyphs. Instead of one line, the inscription was made in three lines (two blue and one white in the center).
1987 – 2001
There is something similar to the previous letter “R,” but the font used is entirely different, new. This time it became fatter and with light italics. On the left appeared a golden bird in flight.
2001 – 2013
The company name on the logo of this time is highlighted in bright yellow color and was applied over a blue rectangle for better contrast and perception. The letters are made in a rounded and pleasant font.
2013 – present
The design echoes the 1987 version, although the font has been simplified.
