ProtonMail Logo 2014
The ProtonMail visual identity was created in 2014 and stayed with the e-Mail service provider for years, as a great graphical representation of confidence, security, and protection of data. The logo is executed in a dark and solid color palette, with an intense and deep shade of blue for both logotype and emblem.

The ProtonMail logo is composed of a delicate yet strict and stable emblem, followed by a bold sans-serif logotype on the right. The inscription has two parts of the name written in the title case, with “P” and “M” capitalized. The two parts are written without any additional space between them.

The main part of the ProtonMail visual identity is, definitely its emblem, which also works as an icon and the service’s signifier. It is a stylized lock, which has a traditional rectangular envelope replacing its bottom part. The “handle” of the lock is smooth and bold, which perfectly balanced the heaviness of the bottom lock part.

The ProtonMail logo redesign, held in 2022, has shown the progressiveness and development of the mail platform, by creating a sleek and very stylish badge in a purple and black color palette. The new emblem is composed of two purple layers, the solid one, and a transparent gradient one, which together forms a geometric figure with the triangular cut-out in the upper part, making up a stylized envelope; and a bold sans-serif wordmark in the title case, with the “Proton” set in black, and “Mail” — in purple.
