Meaning and history

Shriners Hospitals for Children Logo history


The Shriners Hospitals for Children is run by the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. And its visual identity is based on the image of the Arabic man holding a kid.
It is actually a stylized version of the very first foundation’s logo, which was a picture of a man carrying a child and walking away. The original logo was more detailed and colorful, and its typeface looked slightly amateurish.
The current logo depicts the modern and strong contouring of two figures (a man and a baby), forming a heart-shape. The figures are placed in the bottom part of a circle frame, which adds balance and harmony to the logo.
