  • Download PNG Komatsu Logo PNG Komatsu is the brand of a Japanese company, which specializes in the manufacturing of industrial and construction machinery.
  • The company was established in 1921 and today is one of the world’s leaders in its industry.
  • Meaning and history before 1991 The Komatsu company was named after one of the Japanese cities, yet the mane has a meaning of “small pine tree”.
  • The first visual identity of the brand was based on the company’s name meaning — the abstract image of a tree with a wordmark under it, placed in a square frame with rounded angles.
  • 1991 – Today The current Komatsu logo was designed in 1991 by Bob Wolf from Wolf Design Partners agency.
  • The company decided to switch to a more minimalist and modern logotype, and they did it brilliantly.
  • The Komatsu logotype is executed in an extra-bold sans-serif typeface with strong and solid letters.
  • It is intense and perfectly weighted and balanced so that no additional graphics are needed there.
  • The two most remarkable elements of the Komatsu logo are its letters “A” and “T”.
  • The “A” has no horizontal bar, which adds uniqueness to the lines of the wordmark’s “T”, which is the only letter in the brand’s name, having a horizontal bar.
  • The right half of the “T” bar is placed above the height of other letters and forms a square, the only element of the nameplate which is elevated.
  • The Komatsu color palette is based on a royal blue, which looks great on both the white backgrounds of typography materials and websites and the yellow of the company’s machinery.
