Creating Your Bank Logo

Designing a bank logo doesn't have to be complicated, but there are a few basic principles and best practices to keep in mind. There are four core pieces to building a great bank logo: shapes, colors, fonts, and symbols. These elements, when combined, will work together to communicate your bank’s brand and message in just one glance. 

But before you even think about colors or font choices, there are a few questions you’ll need to ask yourself to determine what makes your bank unique, such as:

  • What emotions do you want to inspire in your potential customers?
  • How would you describe your bank’s style or vibe?
  • What images or pictures does your bank’s name inspire?

Answering these questions will give you the information you need to create a logo design that perfectly captures and communicates your bank’s unique brand.

What Shape Communicates

If you look at logos from some of the biggest banks, you’ll see a lot of circles. This makes sense because circles remind us of one of the most common forms of currency: coins. Circles also symbolize connection, security, protection, and longevity — all qualities customers look for in a bank. 

You’ll also find a lot of squares and rectangles in bank logos. These stable, balanced shapes communicate that this institution is strong, trustworthy, and professional.

The third shape element used repeatedly in bank logo design is an upward pointed triangle, a shape that communicates grounding and strength. Because of their upward (and often forward-leaning) trajectory, triangles also suggest growth, momentum, and increase. 

Color Is the Language of Emotion

Surprisingly, colors aren’t just a part of a logo’s aesthetic —they communicate emotion, mood, and purpose. When looking at logos of top banks, there are a few colors that show up over and over. Blue, red, and green are all popular colors for bank logos.

Blue is associated with trust, dependability, and strength. Red feels bold, assertive, and patriotic. Green is the color of the US dollar, but it also speaks of vibrance, health, and growth. No wonder so many banks use these colors in their logo designs! Bright pops of orange or yellow are also common, as they add contrast and visual interest, along with feelings of confidence, optimism, and warmth.

Fonts Have Feelings Too

Clean and modern fonts like Helvetica and Futura are some of the most used fonts in bank logos because they communicate strength, stability, and progress. You’ll also frequently see serif fonts like Times New Roman in bank logos, as they suggest longevity, reliability, and trust.

Symbols Are Super Important

Symbols can make or break your logo design, so choose carefully. Common symbols used in bank logos include keys, flags, and trees — visual cues that speak of security, patriotism, and growth. Symbols that show connection, like arrows pointing towards each other or elements linked together are also popular. 

Ultimately, a symbol needs to be relevant to your bank’s brand and message. But not every design needs a symbol, in fact, some of the best-known bank logos leave them out. The bottom line: If you are going to use a symbol, make sure it’s small, meaningful, and blends well with the rest of your design.

Bank of America

What works: The red and blue diamond nods to both the American flag and a plowed field, and the red arrow within it points forward. The font is a mix of traditional and modern, and the colors red and blue are patriotic and suggest strength and forward motion.

Citi

What works: The font is ultra clean and modern. The ‘C’ and the red ‘umbrella’ both hint at circles, connectedness, and protection. The overall shape of the logo is triangular, indicating that it’s both grounded and growing. 

Wells Fargo

What works: The red rectangle with yellow lettering communicates bold optimism. The traditional font and coloring speak to the bank’s historic roots. The logo itself is extraordinarily simple and distinctive.

Conclusion

As you go on to design your own bank logo, make sure you’re clear on what your bank has to offer, and what sets it apart from all the rest. Then use the language of color, shapes, symbols, and fonts to create a design that combines these elements into a logo that communicates exactly what you want it to say.

1. Enter Your Business Name and Tagline

The TRUiC bank logo generator requires you to add your business’s name and optionally a tagline, or slogan, to help generate your logo.

2. Choose a Type of Logo Design, Font, and Color Scheme

When designing your logo, you’ll have to choose between having a logo with a graphic or a text only bank logo.

Option 1: Graphic

This type of logo displays your business name with a themed bank graphic that will be displayed in a few different layouts. The graphic will either sit next to your business name, or it will sit above it.

After choosing this, you’ll need to choose your favorite font style and color pallet to generate your first set of logo choices.

Option 2: Text 

This type of logo displays your business name or just the initials of your business name in a stylized way using creative fonts and typography

After this, you’ll choose a color pallet and generate your logo choices.

Things to Consider When Picking a Logo

Your company logo can convey different meanings depending on the logo design you choose so try branding your company with a logo sporting symbols, icons, and/or fonts that clearly represents what you’re selling to your customers (e.g., use a coffee cup in the logo for a coffee shop).

Color Psychology - The colors in your business logo design can help define the mood of your business. Consider which color scheme will best represent your logo design when using the color editor and creating your company brand with our logo maker.

  • Warm colors such as red, orange, pink, brown, beige, and yellow are considered to be inviting or exciting.
  • Cool colors like blues, greens, and purples convey a relaxing mood in a brand relating to the ocean or a calming atmosphere. 
  • Black and white provide great contrast when branding your business and are easy to see and read. 

Accessibility - There are basic rules when it comes to creating an effective and accessible logo design. 

  • The font you choose should be easy for customers to read and recognize. 
  • Color contrast is vital for the readability of your business logo.

Icons vs. symbols to make your own logo design - Symbols can help to represent your business, like products you sell or the type and quality of service you offer; it’s like a visual metaphor for your logo design.

For example, a logo design for a CBD oil shop could be depicted as a leaf; the symbolism being that it’s earthy, organic, natural, or all of these. Or, if you own a computer store, you can create a logo design that has the icon of a computer, it can really be that simple.

Font style - Choosing the right font for a logo design is important since fonts capture the attention of customers and show what they can expect from your company. 

If you own a more formal business, such as an accounting firm, you’ll likely want to choose a font that is more minimalistic and professional. If you’re opening a business such as a toy store, you’ll probably want to choose a font that is more fun and whimsical.

What is the difference between copyright, trademark, and patent?

Copyright, trademark, and patent are all types of intellectual property (IP)  that do different things: 

Copyrights are often used by artists to protect their creative work; if someone copyrights their work (e.g., novel, song, etc.), they own the rights to be able to do what they want with it, from selling to recreating.

A trademark, according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. Trademarks are commonly used for logos and slogans.

Patents are used to protect inventions and ideas. For instance, if someone creates a type of machine or tool, a patent can grant rights to the inventor so no one can use their invention/idea without permission.
