Meaning and history

VMware Logo history

The logo of the American software company was created in 1998, and accepted from the second attempt. The first version featured a sharp black and red rhombus with white “VM” lettering, placed on the left from the black “Ware” lettering in a wide bold sans-serif.

It was a pretty aggressive and masculine logo and looked completely different from the second version, which was chosen by the company — a smooth rounded inscription in the lowercase with a light geometric emblem, composed of three squares with rounded angles. The color of the logo was light blue, close to gray, evoking a sense of reliability and trustworthiness. The first two letters of the nameplate were bolder than the “Ware” part.

The logo was redesigned and simplified in 2009. The sky-blue color was changed to gray, representing the expertise, authority, and confidence of the company, and the high-quality of its products. The three squares were removed from the visual identity, and replaced by a solid icon, which is used on its own, mainly on the websites and applications.

The VMware emblem featured a solid gray square with rounded angles and two white letters “VM” in the lowercase, executed in a smooth rounded sans-serif typeface, and connected with each other.
