Meaning and history

From a modest CD wholesaler into a huge international conglomerate, which manages most of all the J-Pop stars, in ten years. Those are some impressive numbers from the Japanese Avex Group. The company followed the route of progressiveness and dedication, with high quality as the main value. Speaking of visual identity, there were no trials and experiments, Avex has always stayed loyal to its stable yet bright and recognizable emblem, created at the very beginning of the company’s life.

The Avex logo, used by the company at the beginning of the new century, was composed of a two-leveled logotype in a fancy and sharp typeface, with both lines in the lowercase, but different sizes. The upper “Avex” was enlarged and had its sans-serif letters smooth and playful, while the smaller “Group” under it had square serifs and looked more confident and strict. As for the graphical part, the emblem, set on the right from the inscription, featured a solid blue cloud-like shape with an enlarged bold “A” in white, set in the lowercase of the same typeface, used in “Avex”.

2017 – Today

The redesign of 2017 created a more modern visual identity for the Avex group, keeping the idea of the original color palette and shapes, but enhancing everything to a new level. The solid deep blue background now has a silver-white three-dimensional letter “A” in the lowercase, and a lightweight sans-serif “Avex” logotype, written under the “A” in a modern custom sans-serif typeface.
