Meaning and history Tube8 Logo

Tube8


The Tube8 logo can be broken into two parts. On the left, there’s the white word “TUBE” in solid capital letters. The word is given on the black background, which appears to be the most widely used choice for porn websites. Black is softer for the eyes when the room is dark. The lettering is followed by a roundel emblem.

Colors

Tube8 Logo
The color scheme appears to have been made with the popular 60-30-10% rule in mind. This rule requires that the surface is divided between two main colors relating to each other as 60% and 30%, while 10% are left for an accent color. In case of the Tube8 logo, the two main colors are black taking around 60% of the surface and white (approximately 30%). To add some life and vividness, red details have been added. Red is probably the color most widely used as an accent for black and white.
