  • The red stylized “A” was placed on a white and black background with a lot of additional lettering and the enlarged “Acrobat Reader” wordmark in black and Ted sans-serif, written in bold slightly narrowed contours.
  • It was placed horizontally on a white background, in the upper part of the emblem.
  • This version stayed with the software for two years, until the 3.0 version of the Acrobat was released.
  • 1999 – 2001 The horizontal element of the logo with the image of the running man switched its color palette to gradient blue, with some black and beige elements.
  • This was the only version without any red “A” symbol on it.
  • 2001 – 2003 The new era of the Acrobat visual identity started in 2001, and this is when the first minimalist logo was introduced.
  • The red “A” with loops on the angles was placed slightly diagonally over a silver-gray square, enclosed intro a red square frame.
  • The dark gray and silver Adobe emblem was placed in the bottom left corner of the logo.
  • 2003 – 2005 The light gray background of the logo was switched to gradient purple and silver.
  • The purple background became smoother and lighter and the whole image gained gloss and volume, looking more professional and confident than ever before.
  • 2006 – 2010 The redesign of 2006 makes the logo minimalist and strong by switching the purple background to a silver one, sharpening the angles of the square, and embossing the red iconic symbol in the middle of the square icon.

  • 2012 – 2015 In 2012 the logo becomes flat again and the silver background becomes lighter.
  • Now it’s a gradient white square that becomes light gray at the bottom.
  • As for the main element, the Acrobat red stylized “A” is refined and emboldened, and on this version, it is not engraved, but just drawn on the light gray square.

  • As for the stylized “A”, in this version of the logo is it executed in smooth white lines.
