Cinemex Logo 1995

The visual identity of the Mexican cinema chain was introduced in 1995 and only changed once in 2009, keeping the original emblem almost untouched, but adding some modernity to the logotype.

The original version was three-dimensional, composed of a glossy emblem and a white lowercase wordmark with a dark blue outline. The outline had its color diluted with white accents, which made it look voluminous and shiny.

As for the emblem, it was a silver-gray sphere wrapped in celluloid, boasting the rainbow palette. It was a bright and cool representation of cinematography, which made the company stand out and became very recognizable in the region. This is why when Cinemex decided to make a rebranding, they kept the sphere and went for the new logotype.

2009 – Today

The logotype from 2009 is a light gray sans-serif lettering, which is slightly italicized. The font features soft lines and rounded angles, which makes the letter look friendly and elegant. Under the main inscription in the title case, there is a cursive “La Magia Del Cine” tagline, executed in the same gray shade and written in cursive.

The sphere on the new logo is not three-dimensional, due to the replacement of the metallic gray with flat gradient color, but it only looks stronger and more contemporary, evoking a sense of expertise in cinema, design, and style.

Font and Color

The smooth modern lettering from the Cinemex primary badge is set in an italicized sans-serif typeface with softened contours of the massive title case letters. The closest fonts to the one, used in this insignia, are, probably, FF Signa Round Pro Extra Black Italic, or Neue Frutiger And irks Extra Black Italic, but with the contours of the characters softened and slightly modified.

As for the color palette of the Cinemex visual identity, it is based on a bright and gradient combination of rainbow shades, which are used for the globe emblem, representing diversity and endless options. The bright and vivid color scheme of the graphical part is accompanied by dark gray, a color of confidence, professionalism, and stability.
