The Esprit logo is composed of a wordmark in a custom signature typeface. The font used for the nameplate is close to Tigra.
The “E” of the wordmark is drawn as three parallel horizontal bars, without a vertical one, which makes the logo light and modern, it adds more air and light to the whole composition.
The lightweight “E” is balanced with the intense “Sprit” part, which is strong and bold.
The two most common color schemes of the Esprit visual identity is red and black. Red has been the main color of the company for many years, used in label’s packaging and stores interior design. It is a symbol of passion and energy, which are the main characteristics of this dynamic and progressive brand.
