Logo Syoss

The Syoss logo has its official version executed in black-and-white, although when placed on the packaging, the lettering can change its color to gold, silver, or any other, depending on the collection.
The logo is composed of the lowercase inscription with the name of the brand, which has a thin horizontal line going under it and separating the main part of the visual identity from the uppercase sans-serif “Professional Performance” tagline, which is always written in the same color as the upper part. Although, sometimes the tagline is shortened to just “Professional”, and the horizontal line is not always there.
The clear yet impressive strokes of the Syoss logo seem to have been inspired by the efficiency of the products sold under this brand. Probably the most distinctive letter is the second glyph, the “y.” The unusual shape of the lower end adds a unique touch – it is neither an acute angle nor a soft curve – just a distinctive and stylish stroke.
As for the typeface of the other letters, it is a clean modern sans-serif with traditional shapes and distinctive contours. The closest font to the one used in the Syoss logotype is probably Europa Grotesk SH Extd, but with the “Y” stylized.
