Armin Van Buuren Logo-2008

The very first logo for Armin Van Buuren was designed in 2008 and boasted a two-leveled logotype enclosed in a horizontally stretched rectangular frame. The inscription has its upper and bottom lines in different thicknesses and sizes — the “Armin” part was enlarged and emboldened, while the “Van Buuren” under it had smaller and lighter letters. The wordmark was executed in a sleek and modern sans-serif typeface which is very similar to one of the Helvetica Neue family fonts.

The redesign of 2015 kept the composition and style of the original version but made it look more brutal and heavy. The white negative space of the first two letters in “Armin”, and “A”, “B” and “R” in “Van Buuren” were colored black. This the contours of the emblem remained unchanged, but the character was elevated — became stronger and more solid.
