The Skullcandy logo, introduced in 2003, after the brand’s establishment, featured a modern sans-serif logotype in dark gray, with the last letter “Y” colored in orange, balancing an orange and white emblem, placed above the “N” and “D”. The lettering was executed in a modern rounded font and had a lot of space between its extended letters. As for the emblem, it was a white skull drawn on a solid orange circle.

The redesign of 2007 switched the brand’s color palette to monochrome, and all the shapes of the emblem became massive and brutal. The lettering was now set in two levels with the upper one, “Skull”, slightly bigger than the “Candy” under it. The emblem now featured a black skull image placed on the left from the wordmark, which was executed in a strong geometric sans-serif typeface with numerous straight angles and distinct cuts.
