DESIGN ELEMENTS OF BURBERRY LOGO
Shape and Color of the Burberry Logo:
The Burberry Equestrian Knight Logo was created in 1901 holding the Latin word “Prorsum”, which means “forwards”. Ever careful to safeguard the interests of his business and products, founder Thomas Burberry registered the logo in 1904 and the eponymous check in 1920, which, however, did not appear on the lining of the raincoat until 1924.
The Burberry logo depicts an equestrian carrying a shield. The equestrian stands for purity, nobleness and honor, whereas the shield visualizes protection. The black color in the Burberry logo represents strength and durability.
Font of the Burberry Logo:
Strikingly elegant yet simple, the Burberry logo borrows from the Linotype Didot Bold typeface.
