Magic Leap Playful Logo Design

MagicLeap is going to make screens disappear.

Your computer screen. Your TV screen.

Gone.

Watch Netflix. Anywhere. At any size.

Put the Mona Lisa on your ceiling.

Stick, yes, stick—the stock market ticker to your desk.

Check your email and your Instagram and the Laker’s score at the same time.

A mysterious expression lay on the faces of those who experience the MagicLeap’s mixed-reality headset for the first time.

Their words are mumbled. Their sentences are stammered.

They act as if they just seen a ghost.

The meaning of the logo is shrouded in secrecy as well.

World renowned designer Natasha Jen—partner at design firm Pentagram—led the creation of the updated logo which was released on September 28, 2017.

The leaper logo was transformed into a sophisticated, fun, and mysterious symbol.

To nail the design concept, the logo creation philosophy fell between the spectrum of “premium” and “playful.”

What is known is that it has significance to the founder of MagicLeap-Rony Abovitz.

The red figure is known as The Leaper. It sprouts two wings to its side. The color is #EA2340. The font color is #97999B.

The MagicLeap wordmark was created from scratch. The typography takes on a circular form that was inspired by The Leaper.

We see a rare glimpse into the design firm Pentagram’s initial shaping of the logo:

The original logo concept is extremely rare and was obtained by Natasha’s team from MagicLeap:

After perilous research, Natasha discovered The Leaper character was seen throughout the pages of comic books as a robot, or organism with top facing eyes and two wings at the creature’s sides.

This symbol adorns the office walls, bringing whimsy into business at every turn.
