Meaning and history

Clearasil Logo history

The visual identity of the famous American skincare brand has always been very constant on its basis — the name of the label has always been the main element of the logo. As for the color palette, it has been chosen in the 2000s and stays with the brand today.

The 1950s

Clearasil Logo 1950

The very first logo for Clearasil was introduced in the 1959s and comprised a simple title case inscription in the monochrome color palette. As there were not many competitors for the brand during that time period, the modest and simple logo didn’t affect the products’ recognizability, yet evokes a sense of professionalism and expertise.

The 2000s

The first major redesign was held by the brand at the beginning of the 2000s, and this is when the color was brought into the logo. The version of these years features a smooth and modern sans-serif inscription in a royal blue color, partially framed with arched lines on its right. The lines were colored blue, red, and gray, showing the brand as a powerful, reliable, and loyal. It was a pretty minimalist, yet bright image, which brilliantly suited the acne-medication and made it stand out on the shelves, evoking a sense of freshness and purity.

The 2010s

In the 2010s the new logo was introduced. Executed in the same typeface the letters of the inscription looked completely different, being written in white and outlined in blue. The sleek rounded contours were balanced by an overall square structure of the font, and the sharp rhombus, which was replacing the dot above the “I” only added geometry to the whole concept.

The 2020s

The Clearasil logo we all know today is softer and friendlier than all the previous versions. It is composed of white lettering with a red dot above the “I”, placed on a blue background, which resembles an arrow, pointing down. The shape of the logo represents the purpose of the product — fighting with acne, and its effectiveness.

There is also an alternative logo version, where the inscription in blue is placed on a white background and underlined by a thick smooth gray line, looking like a curly bracket.

Font and color

The Clearasil logotype is executed in a custom sans-serif typeface, which is pretty traditional and modest, yet has a very delicate and elegant character, due to its full rounded shapes and the bottom edges of the letter lines softened and rounded at the right side.

The typeface of the inscription is pretty close to such fonts as Futura Maxi STD Book and Maxi Demi Bold, but with the cuts modified.

As for the color palette, the brand chose a timeless combination of white, blue and red, which represents purity, passion, and reliability, and with the gray accents, the palette becomes more professional and confident.
