Paypal logo history

PayPal was founded in late 1998 under the name of Confinity. Originally it specialized in security software. However, in 2000, after the merge with the online banking company, its main focus moved to money transfer business.

It was then that the company became well-known under its current name and got its first logo, which was just a white wordmark with a blue border.

The most successful PayPal logo so far has been the one introduced in 2014. The campaign was designed by San Francisco, CA-based design firm and included not only a new wordmark, but also an icon and a new PayPal interface. It was an absolutely logical move, taking into consideration the rise of mobile technologies.

Paypal logo font

The clean, round sans-serif type of the 2014 PayPal logo may seem very similar to the one used in the previous emblem. However, there are a couple of differences.

The most noticeable one is the new “a” character. Also, the letters seem to have grown a bit wider, which is especially visible when you look at the “y” character.
