Font and Colors

Vodafone Emblem

The author of the new logo was the London studio Brand Union. It emphasized the quotation mark (in quotes) and offered various branding packages. It features the main visual identification sign and icons, buttons, short symbols, and inscriptions.

Vodafone Symbol

If the previous version of the word was simple and smooth, the current one is complex. For example, the thin sans serif font plays with the letter “O,” which repeats the graphic symbol. But the color palette has always been the same – a combination of red and white. At one point, gray was added to them.
