Some well-known company logos include Nike's Swoosh, Coca-Cola's script typeface, Apple's lone apple with a bite taken out of it, Google's multi-colored letters and the Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star. There are additional iconic brand logos for establishments such as McDonald's, Ford Motors, Warner Bros. and Levi's.
Carolyn Davidson first designed the Nike Swoosh in 1971. Inspired by the Greek goddess of victory, the logo implied speed and movement. Coca-Cola's logo has changed a bit over the years but it has retained its original script, only changing the typeface.
From 1976 to date, Apple has had four logos. The iconic bite first appeared in a 1977 design and over the years, the logo's design changed subtly as a result of modifying colors and shading.
