2004 — 2010

The first Paramore logo was designed with the group creation in 2004. It was composed of a simple black wordmark on a white background. The lettering in all lowercase featured Neue Helvetica Thin font. It was a minimalist and elegant logo, with fine lines of the letters, evoking a sense of sophistication and style.
This logo can be seen on two albums’ covers — the band’s first All We Know Is Falling and Brand New Eyes.
