Meaning and history

Axa logo history

The visual identity of the AXA company is a representation of stability and fundamental approach, as once created in 1985, the elegant and recognizable badge wasn’t changed much, just the colors got switched to make them look more modern and bright.

1985 — 1994

The AXA logo, introduced in 1985, featured an elegant monochrome inscription in a custom italicized typeface with the edges of the letters slightly expanding, resembling serifs. All three symbols of the wordmark had their bottom parts overlapping and intertwined, which added a sense of togetherness, unity, and reliability. This balance of the airy and light upper part and a pretty intense bottom one made the logo unique and timeless.

1994 — Today

Axa logo

The redesign of 1994 brought a new color palette to the AXA visual identity, and this is how the logo we all can see today looks like: a white logotype, which completely repeats the previous version, created in 1985, is placed on the bottom left part of a solid blue square, and has a red thin diagonal line coming out of its “X” and going upright, as a symbol of growth, success, and progress.

The new blue, white and red color palette of the company’s logo is not only a tribute to its motherland, France, and the colors of its national flag but also a brilliant representation of the company’s values: responsibility, expertise, high quality of services and attention to the customers.
