Symbolic meaning

The shield was a symbol of protection. Since the ancient times and before the introduction of the use of firearms, this served as an integral feature of the warrior.

What companies use?

Shield logos are most often seen as a symbol of law enforcement agencies and military units (Police, FBI, National Guard, Prosecutor's Office, etc.). It is often used by private security companies. The emblem subconsciously adjusts the potential client to the fact that he will be guarded. A well-known pioneer in the use of new technologies, Ilon Mask, also decided to use a shield in one of his companies Tesla.

How to choose the right elements?

Protective weapons are a self-sufficient symbol. It does not need a background, it can act as a background on which other elements of the logo will be placed. Good examples are: Warner Brothers, Porshe, FC Arsenal.

How to choose the right colors?

The design of the emblem is directly dependent on the color - the darker the chosen color scheme, the more threatening the ammunition itself will look. If it is not required –follow the footsteps of Ferrari and choose a bright color for the shield.
