Meaning and history

Foster’s Logo history

The Foster’s logo is a great example of using contrast colors. The brand’s color palette includes iconic blue, gold and bright red.

The recognizable red Foster’s F sits within a gold roundel. The serif F symbol has slanted crosses and a white outline.

After the last redesign, the word “Melbourne” features within the roundel and elsewhere on packaging.

1889 – 2001

Fosters Logo 1989
The very first Fosters logo was created in 1889 and stayed untouched for more than a century. It was a bold white serif inscription in the uppercase, placed on a bright blue background under a colorful emblem, which became a basis for all the future redesigns. The emblem was composed of a sleek thick “O” in intense yellow color with the red capital “F” in a white outline, placed inside. The font of the red “F” resembles the one from the white wordmark, though featured cleaner lines and sharper edges.

2001 – 2010

Fosters Logo 2001The redesign of 2001 removed the white wordmark from Foster’s logo, making the emblem the only element of the badge. The colors of all the components were brightened up, and now the light yellow “O” with a scarlet-red “F” inside, were placed on an electric-blue background. The white outline of the “F” was balanced by a white outline on the internal part of the “O”.

2010 – 2017

The “O” gained an interesting texture and some gradient shades, which made it look vivid and voluminous. The contours of the “F” were refined and softened, while some white accents were added to its red body. The blue of the background became muted and calm, showing the brand as a luxury and professional ones and evoking a sense of reliability and expertise.
