Volkswagen — Das Auto
October 15, 2012
I chose do represent the Volkswagen logo for this assignment because not only do I love my VW, but I also think that the logo has stood the test of time. It’s pretty clear what the logo is — simply a “V” on top of a “W” in white lettering on a blue circular background. Below is a picture of the changes it has made over history.
This logo was the result of an office competition between the engineers to come up with a logo to use. The winner was Franz Reimspiess who came up with the design seen above on the far left side of the “Logo Evolution”.
What I really like about this logo is that it is easy identifiable, which is very important in choosing a logo, as well as that it is an over all very simple design. I believe its simplicity has allowed it to remain mostly unchanged because it has stayed relevant to whatever year it happens to be. It doesn’t have any “gimmicks” or flashiness, but I think this logo is charming just how it is.
