Meaning and history

Autodesk Logo history

The Autodesk logo was redesigned three times during its history, but the wordmark has always been the main part of its visual identity.

1982 – 1994

The original Autodesk logo was a strict monochrome composition of an elegant wordmark and a modern and sharp emblem.

The smooth traditional serif typeface of the lettering was perfectly balanced by a geometric emblem, which depicted three “V” silhouettes, turned upside down, with their legs pointed and their tops flattened. This chevron emblem stayed with the product for almost twenty years.

1994 – 2000

The very first Autodesk logo was executed in a black and white color palette with a sharp geometric emblem placed on the left from the bold and elegant serif logotype in a title case. The wordmark was written in a fancy full-shaped typeface with arched lines and long yet sophisticated serifs. As for the emblem, it was formed of three white pyramids, creating a stylized letter “A”, placed on a solid black square background.

2000 – 2005

In 2000 Autodesk simplifies its logo to a lowercase wordmark in a bold sans-serif typeface. The light blue color of the lettering is the only element of the brand’s visual identity, which makes it stand out.

2005 – 2013

The logo version of 2005 is even simpler and more modest than the previous one — the traditional inscription in a modern serif typeface is colored black and reflects the company’s professionalism and strength.

2013 – 2021

The minimalist Autodesk logo was redesigned in 2013. The new stylish and remarkable emblem was created.

The green and blue three-dimensional Autodesk logo depict a ribbon, forming a triangle, or a stylized letter “A”. With its modern stylish lines, the emblem looks outstanding and elegant.

The modified wordmark is now in all capitals of a sans-serif typeface, with a lot of space between the letters. The right side of the “T”s horizontal bar has a diagonal cut, which adds playfulness and uniqueness to the logo.

The logo looks fresh and light, reflecting the innovative approach of the brand and its willingness to move forward.

2021 – Today

The redesign of 2021 brought the Autodesk logo to its original black and white color palette. The black uppercase logotype in a bold sans-serif typeface is placed on the right from the minimalist stylized emblem, featuring a fancy and progressive letter “A” written in a thick black ribbon, with its right side straight and vertical.
