Vakifbank Logo before 2008

The initial Vakifbank logo was executed in a black and yellow color palette with a plain white background. The bold and slightly narrowed sans-serif lettering was set in the title case, with “V” and “B” in the uppercase. The two parts of the nameplate were set with no additional space between each other. The bright and heavy emblem was placed above the right part of the inscription. It was a solid black circle with a stylized yellow “VB” monogram in thick wide lines on it.

2008 – 2012

The Vakifbank logo was first redesigned in 2008, keeping the original idea and color palette, but adding progressiveness and style to both parts of the logo. The inscription was now set in a slightly italicized full-sized sans-serif typeface with smooth and slightly elongated lines of some letters. The black wordmark is complemented by a bright eye-catching emblem, which is formed by the stylized massive yellow letter “B” and a thin white “V” placed over its left part.
