The original version features an italicized serif font that looks like Souvenir Demi Italic or a similar font. Later, the company moved to a more reserved, san-serif font choice. It closely resembles Tahoma Bold or Verdana Bold fonts. In both cases, the designers used all caps.

Later, the company chose a more vivid shade that looked good next to the bright green, yellow with an orange tint, as well as muted red color featured in the same logo.
