Meaning and history

Spotify Logo history


Though Spotify is a pretty young company, it has already undergone two major logo redesigns, which brought the brand to its modern and edgy logo we all can see today. The main thing, making it recognizable is the bright, even acid, color palette, which makes the app stand out in the list of its competitors.

2008 — 2013

The initial Spotify logo, introduced in 2008, featured a solid green square badge with playful lettering along its bottom side. The inscription in the title case was executed in a white outline serif typeface and had its letters placed uneven, resembling dancing, and having fun with the favorite music the app finds for its users. Three arched lines of different lengths and thicknesses were placed above the letter “O”, representing the sound.

2013 — 2015

The redesign of 2013 made the logo more laconic and clean, placing a circular emblem on the left from the confident and solid black logotype. The new inscription was executed in a smooth modern sans-serif typeface with thick rounded lines and straight cuts. As for the emblem, it was a solid green circle with three white arched lines, just like the ones on the previous version, though this time they had a thin black outline, which made them look embossed on a green background.

2015 — Today

In 2015 the Spotify logo is being redesigned again. Today it is drawn in a bright green color, which is accompanied by three white lines on the emblem. The new wordmark has its letters enlarged and looks friendlier and more welcoming than the previous one, though is written in the same typeface. The magic of the green color makes the whole image vivid and kind, standing for progress, growth, and success.

The earliest Spotify logo, which was introduced in 2008, looked a bit more playful than the current one. Right above the “jumping” “o” there were three lines, which symbolized sound waves and in this way emphasized the company’s connection to the world of music.

The 2013 logotype got rid of the “jumping” “o”, while the lines symbolizing sound waves were placed inside a circle shape and moved to the left. In 2015, the color scheme was modified, while the shape of the logo stayed the same.
