Some car logotypes

cadillac logos

I was thinking to make a research about the cars’ logotypes ( not the main logos ), but I’ve stumbled accross someone’s research that’s actually pretty good and I’m dying to share it with you, so we can make some observations together.

citroen logo

It all began ( in my research ) with the two dots over the Citroën’s logotype. Which are actually called “tréma” in French. It’s a small detail that people don’t notice and I wanted to highlight it. Then the logotypes of the different car models appeared and I’ve decided to check the general situation. Here are just some of them. Once again – it’s not my selection.

Except for the “Picasso” logotype, which is actually a replica of the Picasso’s signature ( the painter ) – the rest are quite boring. Ordinary cars with ordinary logotypes. We’ll discuss the new “DS” line in another post. It’s a different case.

fiat multipla

“Punto” is funny.

“500” could be improved a bit.

Nothing to say about the “multipla”

honda logos

CIVIC has probably the coolest logotype from the whole selection. I bet the guy who came with the name draw this on a sketch.

hyundai logos

They’ve got new car designer ( ex Audi guru as far as I remember the story ) and I’m sure we’ll see better logos than these in the future.

kia logos

CEE’D could be better, don’t you agree ?

mitsubishi logos

May be “eclipse” bothers me a bit , but every design has an explanation. Probably the designers were under pressure. Overall Mitsubishi cars have great logotypes.

nissan logos

I’m fan of the brand, but the logos could be better. Although – they do what they are designed for – recognition and readability on the road.

subaru logos

May be better logotypes will come for the next models of Subaru. Great cars deserves great logos… or may be the Subarus are not so great… like the logotypes we see here ?
