DESIGN ELEMENTS OF HEINEKEN LOGO
Shape and Color of the Heineken Logo:
Heineken International has two logos, namely the “Authenticity logo” and the “Star-Heineken logo”. The company’s famous slogan in the United Kingdom which remained in the force until 2005 was “Refreshes the parts other beers cannot reach”.
“Authenticity logo” has been particularly designed to correspond and strengthen the brand’s brewing quality, legacy and reliability. Its major creations are related to beer items only. On the other hand, “Star-Heineken logo” has been uniquely created to communicate and make prominent the modernism and originality of the brand. It is functional in areas of communication, sponsorships, merchandise and packaging. Star-Heineken on a Heineken green backdrop is favored more than a white background as it projects the features of the brand at its best.
The three Es on the Heineken logo are slightly slanted backwards, giving it a smiling effect. The innovative smiling Es in the label were assumed to be too formal for the brand. The racetrack labeled green bottle is the source of the brand’s visual recognition.
