In June of last year, the RapidSSL.com website got a new look and feel. What we did not change, however, was the RapidSSL Seal. Finally, the time has arrived and today, we have released a new, updated RapidSSL Seal.

Old RapidSSL Seal Design:

The new seal design follows the brand color scheme of the website - brown, orange, and yellow - in that order. Our goal was to create a fresh, sleek, modern, and easily recognizable seal that looks and feels like an integrated part of the updated RapidSSL brand.

The dimensions remain the same enabling current customers to easily replace the old seal with the new. The seal is still animated - rotating messaging on the security it provides to websites including encryption strength and warranty. (This new version updates the encryption strength description to up to 256-bit and adds a notation about our new 2048-bit root.)

The new design main elements are the RapidSSL logo for brand recognition and a padlock for an immediate visual clue of security. The brown and yellow background shapes mimic the website box treatments with a combination of cinched and radial-edged corners. The hairline outline provides a solid border around the seal and makes it easy to stand out against any background. Despite the small profile of the seal, the high contrast colors enable text legibility.

We want our customers to proudly post their seals on their websites so their customers feel more secure and their businesses ultimately benefit.

Hi Kerwin,
When we designed the seal our goal was to make it work on all kind of backgrounds. We tested it on black as well. You see the dark brown outline practically disappears on the black background, and you'll end up with the white outline around the seal.
Please let us know what was your experience.
