About the NVIDIA brand

NVIDIA is an American technology corporation that specializes in the design and manufacture of graphics processing units for the professional and gaming markets. that was founded in 1993 by its current CEO Jensen Huang, Chris Malachowsky, and Curtis Priem. NVIDIA offers a wide range of products and technologies, including graphics cards, PC processors, automobile hardware, wireless communications, and software. NVIDIA was nameless until the three co-founders needed to register the company. Then they remembered that they had all their files named NV, and this led them to “INVIDIA” Latin for envy. In January 1999, NVIDIA went public.

Official font used in the NVIDIA logo

The NVIDIA logo was introduced in 1996. Over the years, it has been tweaked a few times, but its main element has remained the same. The iconic visual identity of Nvidia is based on an abstract graphical symbol, representing the company’s vision of “seeing everything.” The brand symbol and wordmark were redesigned in 2006. The text in the “eye” became bold and changed its shape. The “n” disappeared, while the capitalized letter “N” emerged. The all-capital typeface in Nvidia’s letter makes it highly legible and clear. The wordmark’s first version is presented in a serif typeface, while the second one is given in a sans-serif typeface.
