SpaceX logo
Space Exploration Technologies Corp., doing business as SpaceX, is a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California.

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.
