Meaning and history

Esquire Logo history

Esquire is a great example of a magazine that experiments with typefaces and it never feels overdone—it’s always cool, stylish and contemporary.

Esquire logo

The Esquire logo is the wordmark in the magazine’s famous custom font, which reflects the brand’s style. Typeface Esquivel is a good replica of the original Esquire Logotype.

The brand tries to appeal to a male audience by using monochrome, grey and red. Its logo for a long times used red as its main color, but later the magazine switched to monochrome.

Throughout the magazine, the spreads are balanced with ultra-clean San Serif, notably Brandon or Embauhaus fonts. The publication frequently utilizes Mercury and their custom font Granger for sub-headings.
