The logo of Virgin Galactic is neither minimalist nor easy-to-reproduce. While it goes in the opposite direction than some design trends, it looks contemporary and conveys a powerful message. It catches your attention and, eventually, is a great marketing tool. “Take your chance and see the Universe,” – it seems to invite.

Meaning and history

Virgin Galactic was established in 2004 as a spaceflight company within the Virgin Group.

What makes the Virgin Galactic logo unique is the very true-to-life depiction of an eye. The pupil is very dark and deep. In addition to representing just the pupil, it also stands for the universe and depicts the black abyss of the night sky.

The iris is blue and features a lot of realistic details. It looks like a precious stone, with its multiple shades and highlights.

In the middle of the eye, there is the lettering “Virgin,” which is, in fact, the logo of the parent company. The word “Galactic” can be placed either to the right of the eye or below it. What makes the writing look unusual is that with each letter the type goes somewhat lighter. This helps to add a dynamic touch.

As the emblem of Virgin is part of the Virgin Galactic logo, we should say a couple of words about its history, too.

The original design developed by artist and illustrator Roger Dean depicted naked Siamese Twins and a dragon by their side. The cluttered design was soon replaced by a handwritten logo. The overall style of the logo has remained unchanged, although there have been at least three modifications.
