Natural History Museum Logo

Natural logo and symbol, meaning, history, PNG

  • Meaning and history The history of the collection can be traced back to the 17th century, to the private collection of Sir Hans Sloane.
  • Originally, the Natural History Museum was part of British Museum.
  • Symbol The logo falls into two parts: the emblem (the distinctive capital “N”) and the wordmark.
  • The wordmark is given in three lines.
  • Favicon emblem The museum uses the first part of its logo, the capital “N,” as its icon.
  • The letter itself is white with a black border, while the background is also white.
  • Interestingly enough, the favicon has a different shape than the “N” of the wordmark.
  • Font While at first glance, the wordmark type appears to be a traditional and rather generic one, if you take a closer look, you will definitely notice its unique letterforms.
  • For instance, each of the letters “U” is different from one another.
  • The “U” in “Nature” is bold and has a rounded left end.
  • The first “U” in “Museum” has a rounded right end.
  • The second “U” in “Museum” has a rounded left end, but it is not bold, like its counterpart in “Nature.” We can also point out the asymmetrical “T.” It is possible that such design details symbolize the immense diversity of life.
  • Color Typically, the Natural History Museum logo appears in black and white.
  • The palette can be extended though when a pattern or a photo is used as the filler for the “N.”
