Alright, I’m gonna come right out and say it: I hate the Verizon logo. A lot. I’ll even go as far to speculate that it was most likely created by a senior VP who threw something together late one night for a really big presentation he was giving the next morning. Yeah…it just reeks of something that was designed in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint at the very last minute.
I’ve spent enough time in large Fortune 100 companies to witness this sort of design occur first hand, and it makes me cringe each and every time. However, I give Verizon much props for sticking with this logo for so long. There’s gotta be a story there. Why haven’t they made any attempts to freshen the brand?
Even though I hate the design of this logo, I thought it was significant enough to integrate into my stock illustration collection. Here in the US, Verizon is huge. Love them or hate them – they’re everywhere. If you don’t have a Verizon phone, you probably know many others who do. Big deal, right? I think so – they’ve built themselves up into a successful company despite their atrocious corporate identity, and that’s no easy task.
