Meaning and history

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. logo

The visual identity of the famous shooters which name deciphers as “Scavengers. Trespasses. Adventurers. Loners. Killers. Explorers. Robbers.”, is strong and mas-culine. Its logo in monochrome evokes a sense of danger and makes the main pur-pose of the game very visible.

Though the logo is composed of a single wordmark, executed in white with black accents, and placed on a black bag round, it looks very vivid and full of energy due to the stylized and blurred lines of the inscription.

The matrix-like wordmark in narrowed bold sans-serif typeface has its lines elongated yet strict and solid. Each letter has a dripping texture and uneven lines, but despite it, the lettering looks distinct and readable.

The black and white color palette of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. visual identity is the perfect choice for representing the powerful manly character of the game and its shooting line. This color combination also allows placing the logo on various backgrounds of posters and covers, without losing individuality and recognizability. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. logo is minimalist and timeless, able to elevate the whole perception of the game and to show its purpose.
