Meaning and history

X-Men Logo-history


The X-Men logo was first designed in 1987 and consisted of a single wordmark. The emblem was created only in 15 years and had many versions. The last redesign of 2019 brought a new grease visual identity to the famous superhero team.

1987 — 2002

The original X-Men logo was a bright three-dimensional wordmark, executed in yellow with a red outline. All the capital letters of the inscription were written in a strict sans-serif typeface with straight lines and angles and a slightly shortened “-“ sign.
The yellow and red color combination is a symbol of power and energy, which is a brilliant palette for the superheroes’ image.

2002 — 2019

The new visual identity was created in 2002. Now it was composed of a wordmark and an emblem, which were used on their own. The modified wordmark consisted of an enlarged extra-bold “X” with a smaller “Men” part. All the letters of the nameplate were capitalized and italicized.
The X-Men emblem from the 2000s depicted a circle with an “X” inside. Its color palette changed throughout the years — from red and yellow, to red and white and even blue and black.
The X-Men heroes didn’t have a unified signature until 2019.

2019 — Today

X-Men logo
The modern X-Men visual identity was designed in 2019 by Tom Muller. The current emblem consists of a bright yellow circle with a thick black outline and an enclosed “X” sign, consisting of two equal parts.
Two parts of the “X” resemble two arrows pointing to the center in the negative space.
The X-Men logo is strong and modern, it reflects the extraordinary abilities of the hero team and shows the value of heritage as well as celebrates progress and moving forward.
