Logo Evolution of Tech companies

I’ve been looking at Logo designs of a few companies for the past few days as inspiration for some new concepts of my own.

I thought it would be interesting to see how logo designs have changed for some of the  big guys in the industry. Sometimes having a simple and unique design is all it takes to be iconic.

Logo chanes for IBM, apple, microsoft and Google

Some Funfacts that you may not have known about the logos:

  • IBM used to have a globe in its 1924 designed logo, but dropped it because it wasn’t fun looking.
  • Apple’s symbol has a bite to showcase it’s an apple and not a tomato. And there’s also some word play on bite/byte.
  • The 1976 Microsoft logo features the blibbet, the name of the stylized O. This was also a burger served at the Microsoft cafeteria.
  • Google’s always changing its logo to symbolize the a day in the year. Its most popular logo was the interactive Pacman logo released on May 22, 2010.
