Meaning and history

Strepsils Logo history

1958 – 1991

Strepsils Logo 1958

Strepsils originally had a yellow circle painted over the letter ‘I’ instead of a dot. The rest of the word was, just like now, a rather usual sans-serif style, even if somewhat bolder and thicker than now.

1991 – 2000

Strepsils Logo 1991
In 1991, much of the text became sharper and more pointed. The letters also resemble a serif font now, with all the little notches here and there. The circle also became red, bigger and received some illumination onto its left side.

2000 – 2005

Strepsils Logo 2000
In 2000, the text became more basic than ever. It was now just a relatively thin serif lettering with a lot of pleasant, sharp details. The big red circle was removed in favor of the usual black dot.

2005 – 2012

The 2005 variation is mostly the same as the one from 2000, except the font is different in several places.

Strepsils Logo

The Strepsils logo is a great representative of its time. It’s strict and modest, as the pharmaceutical logo has to be, yet modern and recognizable all over the world.

It’s bold clean typeface executed in black is complemented by a brand’s graphic icon. The Strepsils icon is a red and grey circle, divided into two parts by a white letter S.

The Strepsils logo combines geometric shapes without resting mobility or lightness, resulting to be elegant and fresh. It represents a unity of a modern logo with a traditional one, due to its classic yet bright color scheme and it’s bold yet simple typeface.
