Meaning and history

Malibu Logo history

1982 – 2013

Malibu Logo 1982
Their original logo consisted of an emblem – a red semicircle posing as the Sun, with two dark brown palms in front of it – capped by a curved writing. The letters there were bold serif characters of the same color.

2013 – 2019

Malibu Logo 2013
The 2013 design is much like what they used afterwards, except the wordmark is carried on from the 1982 logo, and the emblem is different. It’s a lot more orange, and there’s an additional uneven frame around the Sun.

2019 – Today

Malibu logo

Malibu Rum is an innovative and dynamic brand that invites consumers around the world to share the Caribbean spirit.

The Malibu logo color scheme is inspired by Caribbean sunset and includes different tones of orange, as well as the coconut main color – white for the bottle, and deep brown for the wordmark and the palm trees.

The famous Malibu logo is an image of two palms and sunset with an eyebrow lettering above it. After the last redesign, the Malibu logo has a new bigger and bolder look with lifted palm leaves, sunset colors and a revised horizon.

The icon is beautifully crafted and looks like a jewel and is aimed to protect the free and easy spirit of Malibu. It captures the inspiring moment when the setting sun meets the beach, and the day opens up into an even better time.

The custom typeface is bold and elegant, based on a classic flare serif font, the closest might be Fire Ladder (with generated shadow lines) or Dragon Serial Heavy.

The Malibu logo is distinctive and modern and emphasizes the unique MALIBU character.

The Malibu brand aims to stay relevant and top of mind amongst a future generation of consumers. The latest redesign made the brand look and feel more  contemporary and improved its visibility in e-commerce. The ambition was to create an identity that is as clear and direct as the Malibu brand.

The Malibu logo design is vibrant and fresh, it celebrates the brands spirit. Malibu is all about spreading the summer feeling of being carefree and open to good times.

The most popular advertising campaign of Malibu labeled it as “seriously easy going”, with reference to people from the Caribbean. This “island” focus of Malibu stands in some contrast to the fact that it’s named after the town in California.

Through the evolution of its much-loved design and logo, Malibu is seeking to maintain strong brand equity and relevance with millennials, aiming to reinforce its quest to become a global icon of summer.
