What are Whole Foods?
Whole Foods is an American supermarket chain; which was established in 1980 and today has over 500 locations across the country. The chain is specialized in bio and natural grocery products, along with pharmacy items, beverages, and even flowers.

1980 – 1984

The original logo of the grocery chain was designed the same yet the company was established, in 1980. It featured a sharp serif font for the “Whole Foods Market” inscription. The letters were a dark blue color and had a light beige background that repeated their shape. This inscription was placed on an elongated rectangle with rounded ends and had a shadow behind it. This base had a blue and beige gradient with a light brown border. The logo turned out quite detailed and polished.

1984 – 2016

The logo was composed of a sleek bold wordmark set in two levels and the word “Market” in all capitals placed on a thick green underline.
The emblem of the store is a stylized letter “O” in “Whole”, which looks like fruit with the leaf, waving to the left. It looks simple and delicate, yet very elegant and recognizable.

The green and white color palette of the visual identity is a reflection of freshness and growth, the colors also symbolize reliability and success, letting the customers know, that here they can find the best products of the highest quality.

2016 – Today

The original logo wasn’t changed much, only slightly modified in 2016. The typeface of the inscription was replaced by a more confident one, while the whole logo now is color red white and placed on a rounded green background.

The word “Market” is now placed right under the wordmark without any additional lines and details. The leaf of the “O” gained a smoother and sleeker shape, and now the letter started resembling a fruit even more. It can be seen as an apple or a peach.


The main wordmark is executed in a bold and elegant serif typeface, which is very similar to Brighton Com Bold, but with the letter “F” modified — one vertical serif is added to its horizontal bar.

The strong and sophisticated classy inscription is balanced by a light and modern “Market” tagline in all capitals, which is written in a light and clean sans-serif typeface, which is pretty close to Lawyer Gothic but with some letters modernized.

The nameplate is perfectly balanced and two typefaces ideally suit each other, adding modernity to classics and fundamental approach to progressiveness.
