Meaning and history

Courtyard Logo history


Courtyard hotel brand is focused primarily on transient business travel and the brand’s logo reflects its philosophy.
The Courtyard logo is simple in its form but adds more life by using bright orange as the main color. Orange color is a symbol of youth, passion and success and it represents the brand, targeting the next generation of business travelers.
The previous Courtyard logo was more traditional and had 3 colors in its palette (burgundy, green and gold with a white lettering). The typeface was more classic. The new wordmark is executed in a bold modern font, the only thing it borrowed from its past version – a diagonal bar on the letter A.
The Courtyard logo adds a fresh and fun feeling to the brand identity and aims to attract young professionals and explorers around the world to enjoy its hotels’ services.
