Brand history


QUnit logo 2011

Prior to January 2013, the QUnit brand featured a green color theme.

A temporary logo used the Myriad Semibold font for the project name.

In 2012, the logo was updated to align with the other jQuery Foundation projects, based on the jQuery logo as designed by Scott Jehl in 2008. The 2012 version of the QUnit logo was created by Zach McCarthy.

The 2012 website theme was designed and developed by Doug Neiner and Darcy Clarke, which would be deployed to two months later. You can browse the 2012 version of the website at the Internet Archive.


In January 2013, QUnit changed its branding to its now-beloved purple. This was the outcome of a 2012 color study in collaboration with FortySeven Media, that reviewed it in context of other jQuery Foundation projects.

In 2018, Trent Willis designed a new homepage for QUnit. In 2020, Timo Tijhof launched the redesign with a matching redesign of the API documentation. The QUnit site framework is published as jekyll-theme-amethyst.
