Share more. Share often.
Initially created as a way to share intimate moments with close friends, the platform has become a way to interact with the world around you. From international news, to local stories, users are empowered to shape the world around them using the most powerful camera in the world; one that is with you wherever you go. See the world through a strangers eyes, experience a concert from the other side of the globe, have a private, in the moment chat with your friend.
As the primary usage of the platform changes, so must the design aesthetic behind it. Snap’s new logo consists of easy to recognize shapes playing together to form a personable, descriptive, and minimalistic character.
The new Snap logo was designed to be a reflection of the life of the company. You. Inspired by the expressive nature of everyday objects (primarily sci-fi robots), the logo becomes a centre of expression for the user. Relying on a line and two circles, you can express your excitement, shock, anger, or happiness.
The expressive nature of the logo carries over into everything. From business cards, to company apparel, the lighthearted spirit of the logo follows through to everything we do.
Including subtle callbacks to the companies history, the redesigned Snap logo incorporates familiar elements built to surprise and delight those who look for it.
Be Bold. Be Subtle
Being a digital company, the new logo must be bold enough to be properly displayed on the small screens we carry with us throughout the day, but also must be bold enough to stand on its own; be it advertising, or on branded merchandise.
