As for the visual identity, the application has been very stable since the creation of its original logo version in 2011. Only two light redesigns were held throughout the years, but everything from the idea to the color palette has been saved.

2011 – 2013

Line Logo 2011

The initial LINE logo was introduced in 2011 and stayed unchanged for almost two years. It was a bright square emblem with rounded angles (normal web icon shape) in vivid green color with a voluminous white dialogue cloud, where the green rounded logotype was engraved. This was the only three-dimensional version of the LINE emblem, with a glossy surface of the white element and gradients of the green background.

2013 – 2016

The redesign of 2013 made the LINE logo flat and simple, keeping the shapes and sizes of the previous badge. The main thing here was about the color palette, which got rid of any gradients and lights and started looking more professional and serious. The lettering was written in the same rounded sans-serif typeface, but with a darker shade of green the letters looked bolder and more stable.

In 2013 the contours of the lettering on the LINE logo were refined and straightened up. The sans-serif typeface became more square and bold, which turned the badge into something solid and concrete. The shade of green was also enhanced and intensified, making the contrast with the white dialogue bubble cleaner and smoother.
