Compass Airlines logo

The Compass Airlines logo is simple yet eye-catching and unique. Both words of the company name feature simple sans-serif typefaces with slightly rounded tips. The lettering “Compass” is much bolder and larger. What adds a distinctive touch is the open ellipse on the left. While the ellipse is grey, it is paired with a bright red triangle, which makes the design better visible.
