Meaning and history

Winamp Logo history

The Winamp iconic logo was created in 1998 and only redesigned in 2018. The logo was and is composed of a wordmark with an emblem on its left, and the current version is fully based on the previous one, but in a modern interpretation.

The original Winamp logo featured all capital lettering in a bold sans-serif typeface with straight lines and angles. The gold letters featured a black outline, which added strength and made the logotype look solid.

The Winamp original emblem consisted of a flashlight sign, placed above a white rhombus in a black outline. The golden flash was also outlined in black.

The redesign of the 2018 changed everything, but the original mood and concept remain. The new wordmark in all the lowercase lettering is written in a rounded sans-serif typeface and looks friendly and welcoming.

The new emblem keeps the shapes of both the rhombus and the flashlight, performing a new sign, composed of two orange triangles.

The new black and orange color palette of the Winamp logo is a reflection of the creativity and progress of the software, it also shows its professionalism and a perfect reputation.
