Lucky Strike Company The brand was first introduced by R. Patterson in Richmond, Virginia, as chewing tobacco and then as cigarettes. In 1905, his company became a part of the American Tobacco Company, and in 5 years the products entered the market, being a worthy competitor to Cameland Chesterfield. Cigarettes owed their appearance to a fire in a tobacco warehouse. The owners did not throw away the burnt tobacco but mixed it with normal tobacco. The result was a whole new flavor, which made the brand different from its competitors.

In 1917 a famous slogan “It’s Toasted” was introduced, telling the customer about the toasted tobacco in cigarettes. The pack itself was a soft wrapping paper, withthicker, a green paper on the outsidea red circle with a black and gold border on the front side, and the Lucky strike inscription in the middle.In the late 1920s, cigarettes of this brand were actively promoted as a product for weight loss.

Lucky Strike Logo

Both the roundel and the lettering “Lucky Strike” in the middle were preserved. Their proportions were pretty much the same.

The new logo, which was developed by G2 Germany, resembled a seal, which made it look more precious. The combination of gold and noble red made the effect even more pronounced. The updated design was inspired by vintage hipster cool.

Font and Color

The type in the new Lucky Strike logo is slightly more unique due to the unusual elements in the ends imitating serifs.

The custom recognizable lettering from the primary Lucky Strike logo is set in a fancy geometric font with square elements slightly standing out of the straight characters’ bars. Even though this font was exclusively designed for the brand, it has something in common with such commercial types as MPI Republic Gothic and Dynamo Pro Medium.

As for the color palette of Lucky Strike’s visual identity, it is based on a sleek and elegant combination of red, gold, and white, which stands for quality, attention, and professionalism. Red is a color of power, and this red circle has been on the Lucky Strike packages for decades, while gold is the color of precision, and white is here to empha size the brand’s loyalty to its customers.
