App Store Logo-2008
The very first logo for App Store was introduced in 2008 and stayed with the software for five years. In was the iconic white combination of brush and pencil with the ruler, forming the letter “A” and enclosed into a circular frame. The emblem was placed on light blue gradient background with rounded angles. The blue color of the iconic square featured a texture resembling numerous rays coming out of the middle.

The App Store visual identity was always based on one and the same color palette and the letter “A”. But until 2017, the iconic App Store “A” was composed of a pencil and a paintbrush with the ruler as a horizontal bar of the letter.

This artistic symbol was a reflection of a wide variety of content, available in the Apple Store and was one of the most recognizable app icons ever.

2017 – Today

The redesign of 2017 came with the release of iOS 11. The light blue and white color palette remains untouched, while the letter “A” is simplified and modernized.
The new sleek letter “A” repeats the contour of the previous version, but in smooth rounded lines. It looks more confident and elegant, giving more space for imagination and creativity.
The rounded ends of the letter bar perfectly balance the rounded angles of a blue square, which looks friendly and welcoming in the used color. The white “A” shows loyalty and trustworthiness, as well as evokes a sense of security and reliability.apple app store logo
