The Hewlett-Packard Company was a US information technology company based in Palo Alto, California. The range of products it manufactured included hardware components and software. Founded in 1939, HP became the world’s largest PC manufacturer by 2007 and stayed at the top until 2013.

HP Logo Meaning and history

In 2015 Hewlett-Packard split into two companies, each focusing on a different audience. The Hewlett-Packard Enterprise is a product and service organization that deals with industrial-grade servers. HP Inc. deals with individual customers. Each of the companies created its own logo.

HP symbol: Hewlett Packard Enterprise

The emblem is pretty simple: just the name of the company written in two lines and a white rectangular with a green border. All the three words are written in a sans-serif font, the first line is in bold. The HP symbol is far from being imaginative, but at least it is easily recognizable and doesn’t leave you in doubt as to whom it belongs to.

HP emblem

Unlike the logo that belongs to Hewlett Packard Enterprise, the HP emblem is pretty experimental. It consists of four lines angled at 13 degrees. Every line has a different length and is supposed to represent a part of the company’s name. The logo is sleek, elegant, and definitely looks innovative. However, a person can’t easily understand what company the emblem belongs to unless he is already familiar to it as the “HP” lettering is hardly readable.

The mark was created between 2008 and 2011 by the British creative agency Moving Brands. It looked so unusual that it was only in 2016 that the company dared make it is official logo.

Colors of the HP Logo

While the older HP logo featured a white lettering on the blue background, the new one can be performed in a variety of colors.

Font of the HP Logo
