Meaning and history

Pandora Logo history

1982 – 2019

Pandora Logo 1982
The original Pandora wordmark had capital, sans-serif letters in it. They were rather thin, although the width of the lines subtly changed to even slimmer proportions here and there. Above the letter ‘O’, there was a small image of a crown. It’s a simplified symbol, consisting of a miniscule rectangle, three dots and three triangular peaks.

2019 – Today

Many things changed here. Firstly, the font became a less elegant, uniform style with bolder lines. The crown got rid of the rectangular base, but was otherwise unchanged. Lastly, the coloring switched from jet black to dark brown.

Icon

After the latest redesign, Pandora started using a very special and tender color, powder pink. The brand chose a pink hue to stand out from competitors Tiffany & Co. and Swarovski. The new branding is thicker than its predecessor, with smaller gaps between the letters. The new version of the Pandora Icon also has changed and now it does not have any line under the crown symbol.Logo Pandora

How to determine the originality of Pandora jewelry?

The letter “O” became the new monogram of the brand. It was the crowned letter on a pink background that became the company’s avatar in social networks. The updated visual identity is designed to convey a fresh and modern tone, and the pink color became a new recognizable element in the points of sale.​​

Font and color

The name of the company is given in a perfectly legible sans serif typeface. All the letters are capitalized. Interestingly enough, although there does exist a font named Pandora, it is not the font actually used in the logo of the namesake company. The type bearing the name “Pandora” looks rather weird, if not eerie. Hardly a surprise, taking into consideration that American Horror Story is cited as its inspiration. The Pandora logo font is different. It is a customized typeface very similar (yet not identical) to Optima Demi Bold created by Hermann Zapf.

The wordmark is built around a simple black-and-white color scheme, emphasizing the elegance and refinement of the Pandora jewelry.
