Meaning and history

The visual identity of a famous online book store is timeless and recognizable. The logo, composed of a wordmark and an emblem perfectly represents the company’s essence and profile.

The dark red and black color palette looks serious and professional on a white background, reflecting the expertise and authority of the e-commerce platform in its field.

The AbeBooks emblem depicts a red bird, whose wings resemble book pages. It is a symbol of freedom and creativity, which reading gives you. It opens you the new world of knowledge and imagination.

The black wordmark ideally balanced the bright and intense emblem, adding a sense of stability and reliability to the company and showing it as a thrust worth and professional one.


The wordmark of the online platform is written with only two letters capitalized — “A” and “B”— and have no space between the two parts of the inscription. The lettering is executed in a sleek and bold sans-serif typeface, which is very similar to Metronic Pro Bold with its thick lines and smooth angles, yet some of them are pointed, which adds uniqueness to the whole logo, making it strong and modern.
