Medicare Logo

The only graphical element on the Medicare badge is the emblem of its parental organization, the US Department of Health and Human Services. The insurance program’s logo reflects its affiliation to a reputable institution and puts its badge on the left from the simple yet bold logotype of the insurance service itself.

The emblem of the HHS is a modern stylized image of a flying eagle. The U.S. national bird is also prominent on the flag and the Department of Health seal, so another affiliation here.

The most interesting detail in the girl logo is its wings and tail, which are stylized as two human profiles, facing to the left, with the eagle. This is how the governmental agency brilliantly depicted the National idea of the country (the Eagle), and all American people (the profiles) in one simple image, which also reflects the values and priorities of the organization.

The full name of the agency is set along with the invisible circular frame of the emblem, in the uppercase of a traditional and strict typeface with clean contours and massive visible serifs.

The Medicare name is set on the right from the emblem, set on a blank white background. Set in a deep shade of blue and executed in a slightly italicized modern sans-serif typeface, which looks friendly yet evokes a sense of protection and confidence at the same time.
