Meaning and history

Michael Jackson Logo history


One of the most significant and well-known singers in history, the legend of pop-music, Michael Jackson, always paid a lot of attention to his brand’s visual identity, and all the design features. His logo history was pretty intense and had around five redesigns throughputs the years.
Despite numerous redesigns, there has always been one feature that never changed — the monochrome color palette, a sigh of power, quality, and timeless elegance.

1982 — 2009

Michael Jackson Logo-1982
The very first logo for Michael Jackson was designed in 1982. This was the one and only logo used by the singer until 1988, and one of many used until 2009.
It was simple black lettering, repeating the Michael Jackson signature. It was usually placed on a white background and looked perfect on any background with different illustrations.

1988

The most iconic and recognizable logo was designed in 1988. It was an image, showing the famous moonwalk. Two legs in black and white were placed on the right side of a horizontally placed white rectangle with numerous thin black and white stripes and one wide white.

1995

The logo design from 1995 was something new for the brand. It was a stylized monogram, where two letters “M” and “J”. The upper part of the image resembles a butterfly, while the smooth “J” and its curve looked like a long playful tail of a small monkey. Or a cat. This monogram was used on the cover of only one album — HIStory.

2004

In 2004 the new logo was created for the Michael Jackson brand. It was a graphical image, showing the legendary singer dancing with his hands up and legs crossed. Michael was wearing a black suit, an iconic hat, and black-and-white shoes, the same look as from the “Black or White” video clip.

The 2010s

After the singer’s death, the series of logos were designed. There were different options — graphical ones and logotypes, minimalist, and detailed. The most famous graphical was composed of the stylized singer’s silhouette standing in profile and doing his moonwalk. It was executed in black and usually placed on a white background.
Another version was composed of the wordmark where “Michael” and “Jackson” part in all capitals were divided by the black crown. The lettering was executed in a sleek and modern serif typeface with thin and delicate serifs.
There was also a monogram version, based on the logotype. Intertwined “M” and “J” in the same font were complemented by the black and white crown above the capital “J”, which was placed in the center of “M”.
