Foo Fighters is an American band established in Seattle, 1994. The music genre in which they generally sing is rock and its derivatives. The head of the band, responsible for guitar accompaniment and lead vocals, is Dave Grohl. He was the drummer of Nirvana in the past. The band became popular after its first album, called after its name – Foo Fighters.

Meaning and history

Initially, it was a one-man project, driven by Dave Grohl, a previous Nirvana drums player. After the disappearing of the group, he decided to make his own premier album and called it Foo Fighters. This name derived from a term, spread in US Air Force during the War, used to describe unknown flying things as well as paranormal phenomena in the sky above Eurasia and Pacific Ocean. Soon after the impressive success of his album, the popularity came to Grohl, and he had to form a collective to record more songs.

2007 – today

Foo Fighters Logo

The following logo was created by the brand design team of Foo Fighters band in 2007. It refers to the collective’s sixth album, which was called Echoes, Silence, Patience& Grace. As previous ones, the 2007 logo depicts the nameplate of the brand. It’s a two-line inscription without a background or any special badges, signs and other elements.

Font

The font of the 2007 version of the Foo Fighters’ wordmark has custom letters. For example, both ‘O’ characters are looking like circles cut in two parts by white lines. The last ‘S’ also was a circle, but with white strokes embedded inside it. The general appearance of the whole inscription consisted of extra wide lines of characters, which gave the whole wordmark a heavy style.

Color

Historically, Foo Fighters didn’t have a single brand identity. Their logotypes were always made for new albums, but not the band itself. This instability was also reflected in their color palette: the very first logotype was painted red, while the 2002 version had a black painting, and the 2007 variant was colored gray.
