Capcom logo

The Capcom logo is bright and recognizable. It looks a little naive and retro, due to its simple style and color palette, but it is unique and memorable work.

The Capcom nameplate in all the capital letters is executed in a modern serif typeface, which is Korinna. Both letters “C” of the inscription have their upper parts bent to the center, which makes their serifs look sharp and bold.

The bright yellow color of the lettering is balanced by a thick blue outline, which be-comes more intense in the second part of the nameplate, accenting on “Com”.

The yellow and blue color palette of the Capcom logo is a reflection of the energy and creativity of the brand, as well as its progressive and innovative approach to the development of the game.

The simplicity and minimalism of the Capcom logo emphasize the unique style of the company and make it stand out from the list of its competitors.
