The first emblem consists of a stylized letter S and the company name. The symbol significantly surpasses the word in size. It resembles two disks between which the process of information transfer takes place. In the first ST-506 systems, information storage was carried out on several drives connected by cables. The emblem represents this system.

The green color is a symbol of life, development, and growth. It demonstrates that the company’s technology is the future.

The name is written in lowercase letters with a script font, embodying the flow of information, gradual data extraction, and the connection between the disk and the computer.

Seagate Logo 2015-present

In 2015, Seagate began partnering with IBM to develop data storage technologies using IBM Cloud, compatibility with IBM Power Systems, and the company’s disks. A new logo was developed to emphasize the important steps in development.

The emblem still consists of an image and an inscription. However, compared to the 2002 logo, they changed the placement sequence. The symbol is placed ahead of the name.

The wavy green stripes resemble:

  • A part of a fingerprint. The imprint is individual. It contains information about a person. The company’s products also store personal information.
  • Tracks on the disk. Information on the disk is stored in the form of magnetic pulses arranged in tracks.
  • A galaxy. Earth is located in the Milky Way galaxy, which has a spiral shape. The association points to the storage of information for future generations. The disks contain encrypted data that will exist for millennia. This form was created to demonstrate the company’s participation in NASA experiments. In 2015, the disks were prepared to record information about Mars in the Mars Curiosity Rover program.

The name is written in thin light-gray letters. This technique creates an impression of airiness and flight. Overall, the symbol looks cosmic and demonstrates a new stage in the company’s life, expanding into space. The word Seagate seems to lead the planet. The company defines the further development of the industry, developing new technologies that change information storage systems for humanity.

Font and Colors

The green color is an integral part of all the manufacturer’s emblems. The shades incorporate the profitability and potential of new systems. Light green represents discoveries, beginnings, and far-reaching partnerships with technology companies. The color reflects the youth of our planetary system. It is at the beginning of its journey, and many discoveries are yet to come. Seagate dreams of participating in upcoming developments and innovations.

The inscription style is simple, with its letters resembling many common fonts. It indicates the universality of digital systems and the ease of communication between separate modules from different firms. The space between the characters is increased, symbolizing the ability to store a large amount of data. Each letter is like a separate information cell. The technique gives the symbol airiness and a sense of flight.
