Meaning and history

Maybank Logo history

1993

Maybank Logo 1993
The previous Maybank logo was introduced the same year the company purchased Safety Life & General insurance Sdn Bhd.
The logo featured the word “Maybank” in black inside a gold rectangle. There was also a stylized view of the tiger’s head inside a black ring. The ring was placed inside the gold rectangle, too. The type was a pretty heavy one. Also, it looked very flat (squashed), which damaged the legibility.
In addition to the version with the gold square, a black-and-white version was used where the gold square disappeared.

2011

Maybank logo
The design grew clearer and better-legible. The letters grew higher, due to which the feeling of lack of space disappeared. While the logo still featured the side view of the tiger’s head, the picture was redrawn. It now looked more attractive and cleaner.
The shade of gold became slightly different, more vivid and sunny.
According to the company’s press release, the updated design represents its “strength and leadership especially in the region.”

The type featured in the Maybank logo is a bold sans looking very much like FF Dax Wide ExtraBold. One of its distinctive features is the presence of the unusual curved elements on the “a’s,” “b,” and “n.” On the whole, the current type looks more modern than its predecessor.
