Meaning and history

Greenpeace Logo history

1969 – 1985

Greenpeace Logo-1969
The initial Greenpeace logo did not differ much from the one we can see today. Though the green shade was more intense, closer to dress grass color, and the lines of the handwritten inscription were a bit thinner than now. Another thing about the first logo was the size of the letters — the symbols of the wordmark were slightly bigger than in the current logotype, and there was more air between the bars.

Font and color

The uppercase Greenpeace inscription is executed in a modern handwritten font, resembling marker-style writing. The thick and slightly slanted lettering is written in a custom typeface, which is pretty close to such fonts as LeDrole Lettering Pro Black and Permanent Marker Pro, but with some shapes and lined modified and elongated.

As for the color palette, the Greenpeace visual identity is drawn in the green and white mix. The green on the current logo is light and bright, juicy and intense, reflecting growth, energy, and life. This shade of green is also associated with nature and progress. Overall it is a very fresh and vivid palette, which makes even simple lines look stylish and bold.
