Mall of Asia Logo History

The mall opened in 2006. It was the 25th mall in the chain of shopping malls owned by the company. Today it ranks the 4th in the Philippines and the 12th in the world. Mall of Asia provides excellent facilities not only for shopping, but also for leisure and entertainment, which has made it a popular tourist destination.

Having utilized the idea from the “SM” logo used by numerous malls, the designers created a new and unique logo.

The 2006 Symbol

The brand identity for Philippines’s most popular shopping mall features the abbreviation “SM” characteristic of all “SM” logos. The letters stand for “Shopping Mall”. They are of navy blue color with a white strip in the middle.

This distinctive element is paired with the name of the mall which is below the “SM”. The “MALL OF” is in blue color and the word “ASIA” is in red. The words are written in all caps but they are different in size. Thus, the letters in the word “ASIA” are almost twice as large as in the “MALL OF”. Besides, the letters in it are straight while in the rest of the wordmark they are inclined.

The yellow horizontal curve goes across the word “ASIA” creating a horizontal bar in the letters “A”. It suggests community and tranquility.

Below the name of the mall and a bit to the right there is the slogan “No Other Mall Comes Close” in a thin handwritten script.
