MoneyGram Logo 1988

The original badge of the MoneyGram company was introduced in 1988 and stayed unchanged for almost ten years. It was a simple and traditional horizontally-oriented rectangular logo in dark blue and white, with smooth and bold cursive serif lettering in white, written against a solid blue background. The banner was complemented by a thin white stripe with the black uppercase “The Better Way To Wire Money” motto written across it.

1997 – 2012

MoneyGram Logo 1997
The original MoneyGram emblem, created in 1997, definitely has a lot of resemblance to the minimalist and cool logo we all can see today. It became the basement for the current design, even though it was more complicated, detailed, and naive. It was a slanted black logotype in a fancy custom typeface with the two parts of the company’s name overlapping. The lettering featured smooth arched lines, sharp angles, some tail curves, and square serifs. It was placed on the left from the dark red emblem, which was composed of a solid flat circle with white arrows and orbits drawn on it. It was a representation of the money movements across the globe, the purpose of the company.

2012 – Today

The previous logo, which was used by the company until 2012, featured the same color palette, but the typeface was more classic and condensed, with curves and serifs and the last “Y” of the first word overlapping the first “G” of the second. The previous emblem was two-dimensional and comprised two white arrows creating a swirl on a red circle.

Font and color

The smooth and modern title case lettering from the MoneyGram primary badge is set in a rounded sans-serif typeface with medium-weight lines and slanted characters. The closest fonts to the one, used in this insignia, are, probably, Puck Medium Italic and Centrale Sans Rounded Bold Italic, but with some minor modifications.

As for the color palette of the MoneyGram visual identity, it is based on a combination of red, white, and black, a stylish and confident color scheme, which reflects such qualities as expertise, reliability, and professionalism.
