Bank logo

Bank logo

Logo VÚB banky vychádza z prvkov použitých v logu materskej spoločnosti Intesa Sanpaolo. Zjednocujúcim motívom všetkých dcérskych spoločností je oranžový štvorec s tromi oblúkmi predstavujúcimi symbol rímskeho akvaduktu.

Akvadukt je stavba, ktorá prináša ľuďom vodu, technický pokrok, život a prosperitu; no symbolizuje aj spojenie medzi ľuďmi a kultúrami. Akvadukt v logu v prenesenom význame predstavuje väzbu v skupine Intesa Sanpaolo, zodpovednosť za rozvoj spoločnosti a budovanie vzťahov medzi jednotlivými bankami v skupine.

Názov „VÚB BANKA“ je písaný písmom Trajan pomenovaným podľa rímskych znakov na Trajánovom stĺpe stojacom na Rímskom fóre. Tmavozelená farba v logu vyjadruje pocit dôvernosti a bezpečia.

Štyri základné farby:

  • oranžová: farba rámu; predstavuje slnko, energiu
  • žltá: farba horizontálnej línie; predstavuje zem, piesok a prácu
  • modrá: farba prvého oblúka; odtiene modrej predstavujú vzduch, vodu, more
  • zelená: farba loga a druhého oblúka; odtiene zelenej predstavujú rastliny, rast a prírodu
