Knowing The Aspects About Kia Logo

An automaker’s logo is what sets it apart from the rest and makes the buyers recognize the brand. The same goes with Kia that is the part of Hyundai. Kia has introduced the logo emblem for the recognition. When we talk about the Kia logo, there are two variations that it uses to represent the vehicles in different regions.

Let’s discuss further the brand and the logo variations that represent the automobile manufacturer.

Get To Know The Variations Of Kia Logo

Kia logo is simple, yet it conveys the message. It is neither very much creative nor straightforward.  The brand features two logos: one is text-based, and another is a bit more creative.

The text-based logo shows the brand name in silver with an oval shape that is also in silver along with the black background. Another logo is just an alphabet ‘K’ with the missing upright shape of K. The rest stays the same, and the logo is in the silver shade with an oval shape and a black background.

Kia keeps it simple because there is no exceptional creativity in either of the logos. As a result, to some people, it is perfect because of the simplicity.

Introducing The Novel Kia Logo

Kia launched two different logos for the same brand for a reason. The text-based logo clearly says KIA except the horizontal line is missing in ‘A.’ This logo was designed for the international market or every vehicle of Kia that gets launched in all over the world except South Korea.

Another variation is the Kia Korean logo in which it brings only the alphabet ‘K’ comes embossed in the vehicles of South Korea alone. The models built in Korea come with the distinctive logo of Kia that is the stylized K.

However, it hardly comes in any models outside Asia. The K design used in the logo is not any simple one, and if you notice closely, it comes with the sharp curves of the alphabet. It seems pointy and kinetic that depicts energy and speed and so the logo feels right for the manufacturer.

As per the recent reports, Tom Kearns, the chief designer for the Kia brand has said to redo the Kia badge. 2019 may be the dawn for Kia in terms of the emblem that represents the brand. Like other automobile manufacturers BMW and Mercedes, Kia may also return with the innovation. The removal of the oval shape, change in the font style, and added up creativity may bless Kia with a logo that no one has imagined yet.

As no brands can afford to throw their past logo’s design and start with all new, Kia may initiate with a bit of tweak. It may be in a way that resembles the old design as well as the new one. We can expect it to be something cool for Kia. Making major changes in the logo can be harmful to Kia’s reputation, and thus they may start with changes while taking care of the industry’s standards.
