Meaning and history

Drupal Logo history
Dries Buytaert started developing Drupal as a message board in 1999. With the support of his friend Hans Snyder, he set up a local network between the buildings of the university dorms to communicate and exchange news with other students. During the year more people became interested in using Drupal, so the project was made open source. The Drupal community gained momentum by 2005 with several conferences. Today, Drupal is confidently among the top five popular free CMS. It is being used by government agencies, non-profit organizations, trade associations, news portals, foundations, and large corporations.

The naming of the company has a funny history, first, the founder came up with the “Dorp” version, which means “village” in Dutch, but when registering the domain they made a typo and the “Drop.org” was created.

The Drupal software was released a year after and its visual identity is based on its founding company naming. The Drupal logo is composed of a wordmark with an emblem above it.

The wordmark is written in a simple yet bold sans-serif typeface with rounded lines of “U”, “P” and “A”, which resembles water drops.

Emblem Drupal

The Drupal emblem is not always used in the brand’s logo. More and more the company uses a text-based version, but the famous Drop-symbol still appears on the websites and app icons.

The bright blue rounded drop with white sunglasses and a smile was modernized throughout the years and became an “8” symbol, which is today the emblem of Drupal 8 software.

The bright blue and white combination is fresh and positive, showing the company’s professional approach and expertise in its segment.

The drop stylized with glasses and a smile was redrawn to look more like an abstract drawing of a water drop. It was light blue in color and had three white highlights. Although the font was not changed, the inscription was enlarged in comparison to the drop. In addition, the logo now featured a lighter shade of blue, which gave the software a friendlier and more transparent and trustworthy appearance.
