Meaning and history

Topman Logo history

1978 – 19??

Topman Logo 1978
The oldest Topman logo in the list showcased the name of the brand in a very bold, heavy type. The structure of the letters wasn’t unusual, but the sharp serifs added a unique touch making the logo recognizable.

19?? – 19??

Topman Logo 1980s
The vertical version features the word “Top” above “Man.” The “A” lacks the horizontal bar, which makes it look unusual.

19?? – 200?

The vertical version features the word “Top” above “Man.” The “A” lacks the horizontal bar, which makes it look unusual.

200? – 2005

Topman Logo 2000s
The glyphs have grown lighter and taller. They stand closer to each other, but the “sandwiched” effect hasn’t returned.
Some of the square ends have been replaced by sharp angular ones (note, for instance, the “M”). Also, a notable change in the widths of the letters has taken place. For instance, the “O” is now a circle instead of the oval.

2005 – 2018

Topman Logo 2005
This one is like a mix of the previous two versions. It has preserved the circular “O,” but the sharp tops of the “M” and “A” have again been replaced by square ones.

2018 – Today

Topman logo

The Topman logo is composed of a bold and confident wordmark in a monochrome palette.

The all-caps lettering of the nameplate features classic sans-serif font Intestate. It has clean and straight lines, quite minimalist, but condensed and strong.

The black lettering of the wordmark looks good on any background, but the company prefers using white for its visual identity. The timeless black and white combination of the logo makes it elegant and stylish, evoking a sense of power and trust to the brand.

The Topman logo is modern and simple, it shows the brand’s values of quality and design and doesn’t feature extra graphical details, as they are not needed — the label speaks by its fashion products.

It is a brand for young people who value freedom and creativity most of all, and the brand represents the new generation, moving forward and progress.
