Runbox Logo

Runbox has actually two logos, which are used for different purposes. The first one can be seen on the website and all advertising materials of the company, while the second is just for the application itself. So the primary Runbox badge features a three-dimensional cube, formed by puzzle blocks, and executed in light blue gradients. The cube is set on the left from the lowercase sans-serif logotype, set in solid light-blue shade.

As for the software badge, it is a horizontally oriented rectangle, with the same light blue shade for the background, and the darker shade for the lettering and another emblem. The lettering on the banner is set in the lowercase of a strong and futuristic sans-serif font with slightly flattened and extended letters. The cool and modern wordmark is followed by a sharp geometric emblem, a tick, pointing to the right and having its bars elongated and sharpened.

Runbox 7

Runbox 7 is a web application of the famous Norwegian email provider, which offers next-generation services for encrypting and managing your emails. The visual identity of Runbox 7 differs from the primary badge of the email services provider and looks sharper and more progressive. The logo features a lowercase white inscription in a futuristic sans-serif typeface with contours of some letters open. The solid blue background of the badge is decorated by a stylized tick, placed the way repeating the contours of the numeral “7”.

Font and Color

The primary Runbox logo has the wordmark written in a very traditional sans-serif typeface, which is pretty close to such fonts as Texicali Alt Regular or Verdana Pro. While the lowercase inscription from the Runbox 7 logo uses a super modern font, which resembles such types as Shary Bold and Aspire. Although the two typefaces of the two logos are completely different, the badges have one thing in common — the color palette.

The Runbox logo color palette is based on different shades of blue. They are lighter for the primary version and darker for the Runbox 7 badge, although both versions evoke a sense of professionalism and security, they also represent the reliability and trustworthiness of the software, which makes sense considering the purpose and essence of the service provider.
