Meaning and history

The MATLAB logo is a three-dimensional figure of a membrane. It is a very meaningful and complicated emblem, which is based on the wave equation, which is one of the basic models of mathematical physics.

The brand uses a mathematical algorithm in order to create their L-shapes a membrane, which first appeared in the earliest years after the company’s foundation and became its official symbol a few years after.


The MATLAB logo contains no wordmark or framing, it is just a pure form, which is colored orange with the addition of a metallic gradient.

The orange color is commonly known as a symbol of creativity and energy. It also shows the passion of the company in what it does. Its scientific approach, which is even more artsy and creative than any humanity or design segment.

The MATLAB logo is unique and built on science and formulas, it shows the brand’s authority and expertise, their wide research, and experience.
