Vestel Logo 1984
The first Vestel logo used a long black rectangle with the company’s name written on the right. The letters were big, bold and largely white. On the left side, there were instead three squares of red, green and blue respectively, occupying the whole half of the figure.

1989 – 1993

In 1989, they adopted a new font for the wordmark, which they kept using ever since. Here, it was dark grey and without any sort of geometric background. There’s also now a new emblem – a downward triangle with a little serif of sorts sticking out of the left side. It was half red and half grey (like the wordmark).

1993 – 2009

2015 – Today

Vestel logo

In spite of its minimalism, the Vestel logo is memorable and eye-catching enough. It showcases the name of the company in a bright red color that has been scientifically proved to catch people’s attention and have positive associations with energy and optimism.
The glyphs don’t have serifs and combine strokes of various widths, which add a touch of refinement. The two identical “E’s” create a visual rhythm, while the curvy “S” (the only rounded glyph) adds dynamics.

Font and Color

The bold geometric lettering from the primary badge of Vestel is set in a clean and heavy sans-serif typeface with a custom contour of the letter “S”, which makes the whole inscription look unique and elegant. The closest fonts to the one, used in the Vestel insignia, are, probably, Formal Dance JNL, or Titanium Motors Std Regular, but with some minor modifications of the letters’ contours.

As for the color palette of the Vestel visual identity, it is based on an intense shade of red, which evokes a sense of power and professionalism, also representing passion and warmth, attention, and caress. The hue of red elevates the look of the badge, making it look more elegant and chic.
