2012 – Today
The platform had a minimalistic and modern logo created for it back in 2012. It consists of the name printed using a bold font with sharp, pointed stroke ends and straight cuts in other places. These elements added a stylish touch and reflected advanced technologies incorporated into the platform. To add a little more interest, the “it” portion was not made bold. The designers also added a second line that specified the company that developed the product. It gave the product more recognition and reflected that it was being presented by a trusted company.
Font and Color
The first half of the name is printed using a bold font that resembles FS Lola Bold Italic and FS Lola Italic for the “It” portion of the name. The name of the company that created the platform is printed using a different sans-serif font that looks like a modified version of Gotham Rounded ScreenSmart Book font as the letter “t” has the horizontal bar erased to the left of the vertical line.
When it comes to the color palette, the company went for a sophisticated, powerful, and classic choice –black. There is also a splash of light green, which adds a touch of freshness and has multiple positive associations with it. It can symbolize growth, safety, progress, balance, stability, and good luck.
