Why the Revamp?
While we liked our old logo, we felt like it did not strongly represent our brand, and in a way it lacked personality and authenticity.
The old logo was hard to distinguish when reduced in size, felt out of place on merchandise, and we wanted the new one to have a look and feel that everyone could get behind.
We made a color change as we thought the cyan was too bright, making it quite hard to distinguish on lighter backgrounds. This was a problem, because it forced us to complement the logo with a darker background, and limited our graphics and merchandising color options.
Picking the new logo and colors wasn’t easy. We went through an incredible number of iterations, which eventually landed us on this slick wordmark.
We wanted the wordmark to be simple and legible, so that it looks good on its own and next to the logo.
Below you will find our new main colors, Dark Purple and a Less vibrant shade of Cyan.
In addition, we added a brighter shade of Purple for accents and highlights, as well as a fitting red color to match the rest of the palette.
If you’ve been keeping up with our Social Media, chances are you’ve seen these color combinations being used on our Twitter and Instagram graphics for announcements. These colors are more authentic, vibrant, and give Voltaic a new energized look and feel.
Okay, so what changes?
We will be applying our new logo, colors and typography to all our socials, website and Discord server.
