Meaning and history

The logo, designed in 1962 was composed of three bold and sleek black digits “007” with a black gun coming out of the “7” and pointing to the right so that the digit became a handle of the gun.

The numbers, executed in thick lines with smooth contours have some of the edges slightly curved, which added a sense of luxury and style.

As the years were passing, the logo has been changing, becoming thinner, taller, and more inclined. But the composition and monochrome color palette have never been touched.

The current version of the James Bond visual identity was designed in 1995. It is still the “007” nameplate with the “7” as the gin’s handle, but the numbers on this logo are thin and elegant, while the gun has become shorter and bolder. Now the image looks more balanced with smooth sophisticated lines of the digits, and short geometric lines of the emblem.

The black and white color scheme of the James Bond logo is a perfect choice, as allows placement on any possible surface and pattern, and the 007 Agent has a very wide presence in different segments across the globe.
