Since the 1980s, the Suncorp Bank logo has gone through at least three updates. In most cases, the modifications have been quite profound – in fact, we can talk about completely new logos, although all of them have preserved the two core elements: the stylized sun and the name of the bank.

Meaning and history

Suncorp Bank Logo history


Suncorp Logo 1980
To better understand the evolution of the brand’s visual identity, it would be interesting to take a look at the emblem of Metway Bank. If you compare it to the following logo, you will notice the ray motif and the circle theme present in both of them.
The old Metway Bank logo used before the merger featured a hexagon formed by brown, yellow, and green bars. Next to it, there was the lettering “MetwayBank.” The first part of the word (“Metway”) was brown, while the word “Bank” was white with brown trim. The structure of this logo looked very much like that of the following Suncorp logo, although all the details were different.


Suncorp Bank Logo 1996
In late 1996, Suncorp and Queensland Industry Development Corporation, which belonged to the Queensland Government, were merged into Metway Bank. As a result, the Suncorp Metway group was formed.
In the spring of 1999, the brand Suncorp Metway was officially introduced.
The logo featured a red circle, which was apparently the stylized sun. There were three waves in the circle, which had been borrowed from the Metway logo. The word “Suncorp” featured a minimalistic sans. The letters were capitalized and were based on a rectangular shape. They were solid black.

The sun grew white and yellow. It was rising from behind a red abstract shape reminding a leaf. At the forefront, there was the teal lettering “Suncorp Bank.” The logo also existed in other color variations.

The teal on the Suncorp Bank logo grew darker. The lettering was reduced to “Suncorp,” which made the design cleaner and easier to grasp. Now, it featured a simpler sans serif type (Helvetica), all the letters were capitalized. Instead of the part of the sun, you could now see the full circle, while the red shape disappeared.
