In the fall of 2012, Nike started selling a collection inspired by Ronaldo. The collection called CR7 was supposed to represent Ronaldo’s two sides – a relentless footballer and a playful style icon.
The logo of the collection featured a heart slashed by the letter “X.” The heart represented the passion to win, while the “X” represented the hatred of losing. According to Nike’s press release, the logo meant “Love to win, hate to lose.” You could see the typographic logo featuring the letters “CR” in bolder type and “7” next to them, in a thinner type.

In addition to the official logo of the CR7 Nike collection, you can come across a concept logo developed by the Portuguese visual communication studio GOMA.

The letters “C” and “R” also have a distinctive look. The “C” is based on a circle and has sharp angles on both the ends. The “R” has a characteristic gap in the middle.
The agency provided several possible color palettes. One of them featured red and bright green with white, while the other was based on the combination of fuchsia with blue and white.
