Shape and Colors of the Wells Fargo Logo

The simple, visually distinctive and well-executed logotype of Wells Fargo Bank is one of the most memorable emblems in the finance industry. Initially, the use of red color was considered heretical by the finance community, but with the passage of time, it has been understood that it clearly gave the company a clear, passionate and unique identity as compared to those of most financial institutes that contain the blue color. The yellow color, on the other hand, depicts happiness, richness and prosperity of its customers.

The old logo of Wells Fargo as an express service consisted of a stagecoach in a black and white color scheme.

Font of the Wells Fargo Logo

The Wells Fargo logo uses the famous Clarendon typeface which was created by English font designer Robert Besley.
