Safran Logo

The dynamism at the heart of the Safran logo is evident in various details, from the slanted font with rounded corners to the symbol in the form of a stylized “S.” The slanted shape of the letter “S” resembles a rotating propeller, and the two thin curves, in this case, act as lines of its speed. The blue gradient is associated not only with the sky but also with the reliability of aviation equipment. The name of the company is painted in gray, which speaks of seriousness and professionalism.

The logo seems to tell a mini-story about an airplane flying high in the sky and passing by the clouds. The blue color brings to mind the vast sky and freedom, and gray as if to say, “Hey, this is a serious company that does big things.” The letter “S” seems to aspire to soar into the sky like an airplane taking off. All these small details make it clear that these people know what they’re doing.
