The original GCash logo, created in 2004, stayed with the application for about three years. It was a stylized inscription in white-to-blue gradients, with a bold dark-blue outline and some yellowish tones at the bottom. The lettering looked pretty futuristic due to the solid shapes and elongated lines of the strokes, coming out of it to the sides. The “G” in the logo was enclosed into a circular frame, with a solid blue background in the negative space.

2007 – 2013

The redesign of 2007 was held after the rename of the company to Globe GCash. The new badge became literally a graphical representation of the new name, with a three-dimensional blue globe placed on the left from a two-leveled inscription, and executed in blue and purple. The globe boasted some white decorative elements, depicting mobile icons, with a hand in the center.

2013 – 2019

In 2013 the company returned to its original name, GCash, and this is when the second era of the mobile app started, celebrated with the new logo. The modernized visual identity of the application was based on a minimalistic design, with clean white sans-serif lettering written against a solid dark-blue square with rounded angles. There was nothing else on the icon, and it looked very stable and professional, staying unchanged for more than six years.

2019 – Today

The redesign of 2019 has created a friendlier image for the application, adopting brighter shades of blue for the new badge. The new primary logo of GCash is composed of white lettering in a refined sans-serif typeface, written against a bright blue background and accompanied by a laconic emblem, depicting a white capital “G” in a rounded font, enclosed into a circular frame, formed by an open dark-blue ring and two short arched lines in a lighter shade of blue, placed on the right from the letter and symbolizing the connection sign.

Font and color

GCash Emblem

The clean and stable title case lettering from the primary logo of the GCash application is set in a modern geometric sans-serif typeface with distinctive contours of the full-shaped characters. The closest fonts to the one, used in this insignia, are, probably, Caros Soft Medium, or Neometeic Alt Medium.

As for the color palette of the GVash visual identity, it is based on a combination of white and several shades of blue. Blue is the most popular choice for the brands, connected to finance and IT, as it stands for reliability and innovations; while white elevates the sense of security and expertise.
