1942 – 1996

Thule Logo 1942

The previous Thule Group logo was by far heavier than the current one. It consisted of the word “Thule” featuring a very bold sans. All the letters were capitalized, which added even more weight. The most distinctive part was the extended horizontal bar of the “L,” which merged with the “E” so that the two characters formed a single glyph. The extended bar housed the writing “Sweden.”

While the design forces behind the brand redrew the logo and changed its style, they decided to preserve the original black-and-white color scheme.

1996 – now

The lettering “Thule Group,” which takes up the majority of the surface, is given in a sans serif type featuring classic proportions. Only the initials are capitalized.

To the right, there are two elements that have a somewhat similar shape but different sizes. They resemble the ends of two rounded arrows or the “speed up” icon.
