Coty Logo 1904

The very first logo for Coty was introduced in 1904 and featured a simple yet bright and confident inscription in all capitals of a slightly extended sans-serif typeface with clean lines and traditional cuts of the letter-ends. The wordmark was usually written in dark red, which was associated with a rich and intensive lipstick shade, the one that suits all skin types and occasions. This logo stayed with the company for almost a century.

2001 — 2016

In 2001 the iconic logotype was first redesigned. The typeface was changed to a more strict and simple one, though the difference with the previous wordmark was not too big, the letters became slightly narrower and shorter. Another change was about the Coty color palette — it was switched from sleek red to electric blue, which added some freshness and young feeling to the image.

The company was expanding and growing, so the new color was a representation of its progress and ability to follow the latest trends and needs of its customers, which mainly are teenagers and young ladies from all over the globe.
