Features of the American Express Logo:
The American Express logo consists of a simple blue background with easy-to-read text mentioning the company’s name. Originally, there used to be an image of a Viking, which was the company’s trademark. But a few years back, the company changed their appearance to the current simplistic blue and white American Express logo. The text is kept sharp and
highlighted in white to attract the focus of the audience. The light and dark blue background ingeniously compliments the text. The 4-color, 2-color, and black and white Blue Box American Express logos each contain a radial gradient specifically created to enhance the text and the background. The size of the logo is a perfect square and a clear space of 1/3 the width of the box is usually kept to ensure the optimum legibility. There is always a registration mark “®” with the American Express logo at the bottom left corner in blue except with the black and white version, where it appear as black. The famous blue box American Express logo can be seen in every city centre and store throughout the world. It doesn’t matter how simple the logo is, the power of its acceptance is ample prove of the company’s domination in the field of financial services.
