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.

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.

Despite the progressiveness of the music service and its trendiness, the visual identity of Spotify has never been something outstanding and brilliant. The original Spotify logo, like its name, was a product of a trend that quickly became a cliché. Though the company decided to keep it for years, modifying and brightening it up with each redesign.

The Spotify Icon consists of three arched lines in white, placed on a solid green circle. To illustrate the use of new technologies, such as streaming and related ways to transmit bits wirelessly over the airwaves, Spotify and hundreds of other brands adapted the visual convention of concentric lines, which in the past had been used to represent radio waves and t. and were increasingly used in UX icons representing Wi-Fi or audio volume.

In 2015 Spotify adopted a clean, trendy, adult wordmark without serifs and separated its three flowing waves to serve as a separate symbol. This was the birth of the icon.
