1999 – now
The manga logo was coined with the first comic book series and since then has never changed. It consists of the name of the main character Naruto in graffiti style. The letters are large, written in casual handwriting. The predominant colors are yellow – the color of the main character’s hair, and orange – the color of his costume. The letters have an unusual white and black/dark blue outline, where the white serves as the outline of the letter and the black gives it a 3D feel. The letters barely touch, which makes them look like one whole. In general, the logo is very bright and rich and perfectly conveys the eccentric energy of the main character – Naruto. Behind the name, there are three pink oval shapes drawn at a diagonal and mostly covered by the letters. There is also a small inscription of the name in Japanese done in red color.
Font and Color
The logo features a custom font that has uneven edges along with a border and shadow that create a 3D appearance. The letters are mostly rounded with a few sharp ends, which creates an interesting contrast and gives some dynamics. The colors are very bright with some dark blue or black. An orange and yellow gradient is used for the letters with pink, red, black, and white being used for other elements. Overall, such colors symbolize power, strength, energy, youth, hope, and excitement. The black adds a little mystery and might symbolize the dark, hard times the character had to go through.
