Electrolux celebrates 50 years since launching its logo. Today’s logo was created in 1961, by Carlo Vivarelli (graphician from Switzerland) , following a competition in which were involved over 80 specialists.
Previous to 196, Electrolux’s logo had the shape of a globe, that was including a sun and the name of the company, in bold letters. In 1961, Swedish management of the company decided the logo doesn’t correspond to market’s demands and decided to undergo a radical challenge.
A 7 people jury made a shortlist from the total of 123 works submitted, with Vivarelli being designated winner.
