Meaning and history

Cosmopolitan Logo


Cosmopolitan is an international fashion magazine for women. After it was first published in 1886 as a family magazine, it was transformed into a literary magazine and then became a women’s magazine in the late 1960s.
The Cosmopolitan logo is very recognizable due to its fuchsia pink main color. It is a color of the wordmark, or the icon’s background (where the lettering is white). Another version of the Cosmopolitan Ivón is a fuchsia “C” in a black square.
The font used for the Cosmopolitan logo is Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed. Franklin Gothic is one of the most popular sans serif types ever produced. It was designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1902 for American Type Founders.
