Space Exploration Technologies Corp., doing business as SpaceX, is a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California.
The name is an abbreviation of Space Exploration Technologies and it takes on a similar approach as the Tesla logo, not only in terms of typography but also by stylizing one of it’s letters.
However, in this case not the first — but the last letter is stylized, which seems to be perfect for the job.
The X is like a rocket trajectory.
One of the diagonal strokes forming the X letter resembles the trajectory of a rocket launched into space. As simple as it can be.
This typographic treatment is 100% accurate and it seems that it couldn’t be done any differently.
Comparing to those of Tesla and SpaceX, the logo of Musk’s third major venture is relatively straightforward.
