Meet the new 500px

Today is a big day for 500px, as we reveal our brand new logo, one that can continue to grow and adapt with us.

Clean, simple and articulate, the new logotype clearly communicates the 500px name and will be the one predominantly used in most applications. The mark is bold, demonstrative and more playful, with a pattern that evokes a fingerprint and animation that echoes the turn of a camera lens. It will be used in applications where its size and shape are advantageous, and may also be used as a design element.

This brand identity change is important to us for three reasons:

  • You can now clearly understand the company name from the logotype
  • Creating both a logotype and a mark allow us to better reflect our brand identity consistently and clearly depending on the platform and dimensions of space available
  • The simplicity of the logotype merges into a sophisticated mark with a strong, distinct visual identity – pretty important for a visual creativity company!

Want to hear more about the design details? Listen to Adam Shutsa, our VP Design and Chase Turberville, Brand Designer at Focus Lab, our design partner, talk through the elements of the logotype and mark.

Starting today, we will roll out this new logo on our desktop, iOS, and Android apps and will continue to update our experiences in the weeks to come. So that you can share in the experience, here is a new 500px wallpaper you can download and customize for your computer and mobile devices.

At the heart of 500px is this community, driven by the visual creativity of millions of photographers of all ages, skill, and camera gear who are linked by a willingness to share their moments of personal expression with the world. Because we take this very seriously, we have updated our Community Guidelines. We encourage everyone to read and review.

We’ve been happy to be your partner for the past six years, and look forward to continuing together for many years to come.

Love,
The 500px team
