Standing out in a crowded marketplace can be difficult. How do you make your brand logo easily recognizable and lasting for generations? This can be an extremely challenging feat. Few have mastered this level of advertising iconography, and many of them attained it by chance.
Logos that Stood the Test of Time
A few company logos are easily recognized around the globe, and have remained virtually unchanged since their original design. Here are some notable examples.
The Coca-Cola Spencerian script logo has been around, with almost no tweaks, since 1885. What makes it so memorable by now is its longevity. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. Contrast this with the many variations of competitor Pepsi’s logo.
Another well-known script logo is the Campbell’s Soup brand in its never-changing red and white color scheme, dating to 1898. It is said the cursive script of the logo was an attempt to resemble hand-written recipes found in many kitchens.
Although not as old as the other examples, Absolut Vodka burst onto the international scene in 1979 with the same logo you see today. The plain bold lettering has not changed, although the company is not bashful about exploring numerous changes to its advertising, including one campaign where they designed and sold 4 million different bottles.
