The redesign of 2021 has brought back the more traditional 7-Eleven concept, refining the logo of the company, used in the 1990s. The green banner was removed, so now just the orange and red digit, crossed by the green uppercase lettering, was placed on a plain white background with no framing. The shade of green in the wordmark got darker.


The iconic wordmark, composed of the capital letter with “N” in the lowercase, is executed in a bold sans-serif typeface, which is very close to Filmotype Manchester font with its thick straight lines, evoking seriousness and stability.
