2007 – Today

Team Fortress 2 logo

The Team Fortress 2 logo is text-based. Composed of a wordmark with a delicate graphical symbol, it looks bright and confident.

The Team Fortress 2 nameplate is executed in a bold sans-serif typeface, which is very similar to Compacta Bold, created by Fred Lambert. All the capital letters of the inscription are drawn in gradient white and have thick orange outline and shadow.

The letters “T” and “F”, as well as “2”, are enlarged and look powerful in the con-densed square wordmark.

The rounded aim symbol in black is placed over the inscription, between the two words. When used on its own, the emblem is usually colored orange and has a black outline.

The white, orange and black color palette of the Team Fortress 2 logo is a repre-sentation of passion, power, and creativity. It looks friendly and welcoming, yet the shapes and boldness of the letter lines evoke a sense of masculinity and strength.

Font and color

The stylized uppercase lettering from the primary Team Fortress 2 logo is set in a heavy narrowed and-serif font with some of the contours slightly torn, and the characters accompanied by an extra-thick orange shadow. The closest fonts to the one, used in this insignia, are, probably, Robson Bold, or Kuunari Rounded Black Compressed, with some designer additions to the contours.

As for the color palette of the Team Fortress 2 visual identity, it is based on a combination of white and gradient brown with an addition of a black element. The scheme looks very brutal and strict, reflecting the plot and essence of the game, and making the logo stand out in the list of its competitors.
