Next month, we’ll announce our favorite logos from agencies and brokerages. See a logo you think ought to make our list? Email it to Bill Coffin ([email protected]).
What Your Peers Are Reading
A literal as well as a figurative symbol of vigilance and protection; the Sentry logo portrays Revolutionary Captain John Parker, who rallied 77 of his fellow minutemen to hold off an overwhelming British advance.
The humpback whale has been the brand ambassador for Pacific Life since 1997, acting as an avatar for providing for the next generation. Pacific Life doubles down on this with its corporate contributions to whale preservation and improving the health of the oceans.
As the company rebranded itself, so too went the logo. What followed was a subtle reversal of everything the old logo stood for, to communicate that this really was a new AIG. The blue and white scheme softened and inverted. The old-style serif lettering gave way to a more modern sans serif treatment. Result? A reinvented brand for a reinvented company.
The Rock is one of the most famous insurance icons, with a long history. “Prudential has the strength of Gibraltar” read the company’s earliest ad copy, and since then it has maintained that image with a logo that, while updated, never strayed from the original concept. Even little kids know this one.
