DESIGN ELEMENTS OF ZARA LOGO
Shape and Color of the Zara Logo:
The Zara logotype is a supreme example of a simple yet successful corporate identity. It is based on a custom typeface. The black color in the Zara logo represents elegance, style and excellence of the brand.
The wordmark’s success can be seen by the fact that, despite being one of the fastest growing fashion chains in the world, Zara doesn’t advertise, while largely depending on sale promotions and its visually distinctive corporate identity. The Zara logo has, however, also attracted criticism for being too simple and generic.
