Logos Have Evolved For Over A Century
Coca Cola aka Coke
Coca Cola is long standing brand, well over a century old. One of the big brand icons of all time. Further down are more global brand logo evolutions.
It’s a myth that a logo should never change. A logo is not set in stone.
Global brand icons have always changed. Your products and services evolve with your community and the market sphere you play in.
A logo needs to go through transitions from time to time. Whenever a logo maturation occurs, it’s not taken lightly. Maturation happens gradually, over time to best ensure a brand remains relevant and articulates the values that the products or services stand for.
Take a look at these brands, some more than a century old, some not so aged. They all have one thing in common.
Their logos have all matured.
Apple Computers’ logo wasn’t quite what you might have expected back in 1976, but they did stay true the famous image of the apple with a bite out of it since 1977.
