Font and color

The simplicity of the Roche logo is a bit misleading, as it takes a lot of design work to balance all letters and lines, as it was done here. The main element of the badge is, of course, the wordmark, which is set in the title case of a stick and solid sans-serif typeface, looking quite similar to the Climbing Nevis Regular font. The letters are narrowed, yet still, look very stable and harmonized in terms of the thickness of their lines and the spacing between them.

As for the color palette, like many pharmaceutical and IT companies, Roche chose blue as its corporate shade. Blue is the color that reflects trustworthiness and professionalism best, and in the field, the Swiss company operates on these qualities are the most important.

The plain white background of the Roche badge elevates the meaning of the blue hue and adds a sense of loyalty and transparency to the company’s characteristics.
