Meaning and history

Skillet Logo history

All the band members agreed they need an ironic name for their group, so the Skillet was chosen. It is a remarkable and humorous name, which sounds and looks good in typography.

1998

Skillet Logo 1998
The Skillet logo, created in 1998, was composed of a simple yet voluminous gray lettering in a bold and italicized sans-serif typeface, placed on a gradient background and surrounded by a dark shadow, to elevate the three-dimensional look.

2000

The redesign of 2000 kept the three-dimensional lettering as the base, but switched the style and color palette of the logo, stretching the letters horizontally and adding some pink glitter to the surface. The wordmark was all set in the lowercase, which made the smooth lines look friendlier and chicer.

2001

In 2001 the Skillet logo becomes sharp and aggressive. The new inscription is set in black and placed on a light yellow background. The custom typeface of the slanted lowercase letters was all about massive shapes, elongated lines, and triangular cuts, which made the whole composition look sharp and edgy.

2003

The experiment of 2003 included a gradient dark yellow background and a narrowed wishbone lettering, where all the lowercase symbols looked neat and clean, though the color palette added some sense of danger and evil.

2006 — Today


Skillet Logo

The Skillet logo is a unique and strong wordmark, executed in a font similar to Batman Forever, with distinct and confident lines and sharp angles.

The center of the logo is a double letter ”L”. The two letters make an arrow pattern when the upper one replaces the lower bar of the ”E”.

It is a powerful logotype, which looks strong and masculine on its own and on album covers with additional graphics.

The color palette of the Skillet visual identity varies from dark, almost black, gray to bright green on a black background, which makes it eye-catching and remarkable. Green is a color of energy, and this is what rock music is about.
