ESET Logo 1988
A rectangular form with rounded corners appeared right from the very beginning. The emblem had a three-dimensional appearance and featured the name in a frame. The word “software” was printed underneath in smaller, but exactly the same font. Besides having an interesting angle of view, the logo also had a captivating green color palette. The color choice was not done by accident, as the green is always associated with safety and security which is what ESET is all about.

2022 – Today

The ESET visual identity is simple yet well-recognizable across the globe, due to the wide use of its software.
The logo is composed of an emblem with the nameplate placed inside it. The ESET emblem is a horizontally located rectangle with its corners rounded.
It is vertically split into two equal parts — white and sea-blue. The emblem has a thick sea-blue framing, which is harmonized by the bold lines of the lettering.
The ESET wordmark is executed in a clean and neat sans-serif typeface, with “S” and “T” capitalized and both “E” in the lowercase. The first half of the inscription is drawn in sea-blue and placed on a white background, while the second half is white and located on a sea-blue part of the emblem.
The ESET badge resembles a pill and was drawn three-dimensional in its previous versions. The logo looks professional and modest, showing the company as the one, that values quality and security above all.
