Meaning and history

1992 – 2017

The original Teal logo boasted a lowercase italicized lettering in scarlet-red, with the abstract geometric emblem composed of two parallelograms placed one above another and forming an angle. The emblem was executed in calm blue, which in combination with a red wordmark and white background created a color palette, representing power, reliability, and loyalty.

2017 – 2022

The Real logo is composed of a wordmark, which is executed in a condensed italicized typeface in all the lowercase lettering. It is simple and minimalist.

The Real color palette is based on a royal blue, which features a slightly lighter shade when placed on the stores. However, the print and web versions of the logo boast deep and rich blue, which is a symbol of strength and professionalism, as well as reliability and trust.

The Real logo makes the brand look stable and serious, the one that values quality above everything else. The use of the lowercase lettering for the wordmark evokes a sense of friendliness and makes the brand’s customers feel welcome.

2022 – Today

The reddish-orange color reminded of the brand’s origins. The letters were bolder and no longer italicized. Moreover, the first three were so close that they touched and flowed one into another. The font looked like a mixture of Syafiqa Rounded by ARToni and Sans Andreas Bold by Java Pep. The most noticeable update was an addition of the word “Mein” (“My” in German). It added personality to the logo and made the company more relatable and friendly.
