Original symbol

Similar to the current logo, the previous one featured the word “Qualcomm” in dark blue. The shape of the glyphs and the color were not exactly the same, though.

The wordmark looked slightly inconsistent. The “Q” glyph appeared bolder than other letters. The “U” seemed to have been squeezed between its neighbors. What was even more obvious was that the majority of the letters had sharp angles, while the “m’s” were the only glyphs with rounded corners.

To begin with, the color has grown lighter and richer. All the letters have the same thickness. The letters have a similar style now, which makes the design look like a single whole. The authors of the logo took the double “m” from the previous Qualcomm logo as the basis and modified the other glyphs to match it.

The updated logo, which was introduced in early 2018, was developed in collaboration with Interbrand as part of a new brand strategy to engage wider audiences.
