Meaning and history

But it is the name of one of the oldest and most reputable banks in the Philippines, which values its traditions and legacy, and it can be seen in the bank’s visual identity history, which only features one logo design during the company’s existence.

Chinabank Logo

The Chinabank logo was introduced in 1920 and has never been changed, just slightly cleaned and refined. As for its color palette, it has also been adopted in the early years of the bank’s history, and it brilliantly reflects the character and main values of the financial organization.

The logo is composed of and simple and modest emblem, which is placed on the left of the wordmark in all capitals. The italicized wordmark is written in a neat and bold sans-serif typeface with thick lines and straight cuts of the letters’ edges and has its first “C” enlarged.

As for the emblem, there are no graphics and ornaments, just three letters. The “BC” in a modern sans-serif is located inside a bigger “C”, which looks like an open square frame with rounded angles. The symbols of the emblem are also italicized, which makes the visual identity balanced and dynamic.

Sometimes the bank uses only the logotype, without an emblem, but in these cases, the lettering is colored white and placed on a red background.

Font and color

The Chinabank inscription is written in a clean and modern sans-serif typeface, which is similar to such fonts as Nuber Next Black Extended Italic and Neue Helvetica Pro 93 Extended Black Oblique. It looks confident and strict, but the inclination of the letters makes in friendlier and more progressive.

The red and white color palette of the bank’s visual identity represents power and passion, along with loyalty and professionalism, and shows the bank’s customer as the main value.
