Sony Logo Information and History

The Sony logo first debuted in 1958 and was redesigned in the following year. The company was on the brink of change with the introduction of the Walkman eighteen months earlier. Rather than hiring a designer to create a new logo, the company opted to make the redesign a public spectacle. Today, the logo is recognized as the company's iconic symbol. Here are a few interesting facts about the company logo.

The logo is recognizable because of its black background and appears in the center of the screen. The logo flashes briefly on the official website and in movie trailers. The logo then transitions to the logo of the Sony Pictures unit that distributes the film. A modified version of the logo is also used in the production of TV series and films for Sony Television. And, if you're looking to use the logo on your own website, contact the company's legal department to inquire about licensing terms.

The Sony logo is composed of two parts: the name of the company and the trademark. The company uses black on white to represent elegance and integrity. The font used is reminiscent of the Clarendon typeface, which was designed by typographer Robert Besley. The typeface features a wide, bold serif, long, rectangular serifs. The Sony logo was last modified in 2001. Aside from the font, the company has changed the logo several times.

Basic Colors

We've taken a look at the image and pulled out some colors that are common across lots of logos. The colors below aren't the exact colors found in the image, but approximations to common colors.


Advanced Colors

We've extracted the below 'advanced colors' from the logo. These should be much closer to the actual colors found in the logo. Our extractor tries to only take the main colors of the image and tries to ignore shading on anti-aliasing or shadows. This generally leads to better results, but in some circumstances you might find a few unusual colors being pulled from the logo.


Hex Colors

The below are the hex colors that are found in the logo. You can assume that these are the actual colors used in the logo. Our color extraction tool that takes the colors from the logo tries to ignore anti-aliasing and shadows, so you may sometimes find a slightly odd result, but this is rare. These colors should be very similar to the Advanced Colors, but you'll notice subtle differences. If you're interested in the exact color then use the hex, but if you're trying to describe the logo then use the Advanced Color or the Basic Color above.
