GE Healthcare Logo

The GE Healthcare logo reflects the brands balance between being dynamic and relevant with remaining true to its core DNA.

The brand logo is a round-framed white monogram on a blue background. The famous GE Monogram was created and trademarked in the 1890s. It is an elegant hand-written lettering, which first appeared in monochrome.

The Monogram consists of four parts: the solid circle, the stylized circle, the solid background, and the rounded script.

The custom GE Healthcare typeface, GE Inspira, was conceived from the Monogram. Designed in 2004, Inspira was derived from the rounded curves and precise nature of the brands mark.

The GE Healthcare logo offers a strong, relevant, and distinct visual representation of the brand. Its hand-drawn and rounded forms make it feel human and agile. Its balance references precision and technical expertise.
