PayPal is the original innovator in digital payments, but its visual identity was designed for a web 1.0 desktop era. The fuseproject brand and user experience team jumped at the opportunity to create a new PayPal identity that would better represent its pioneering history and address its goals for mobile, online and real world growth. We focused on two key themes for design: connection and forwardness. For connection, we designed a new monogram with overlapping double P and transparent effect to emphasize human connection. For forwardness, we strengthened the italics that have always been a part of the PayPal logo — harking back to the brand’s heritage, and affirming a forward thinking spirit. -fuseproject
Working in a large group I made several iterations on the logo and surrounding materials.
