The American multinational hygiene products company Procter & Gamble long held on to one of the world's oldest logos still in use. Originated in the 19th century as a star painted on boxes of candles, it was eventually developed into a complicated wood print emblem of a man in the moon overlooking thirteen stars. This lasted with only minor changes until 1991, when it was finally replaced by a P&G lettermark.
Late last year, the company introduced a new look, created by Landor Associates that came with a new version of the corporate logo. Taking inspiration from company heritage, it moves the existing lettermark into a blue circle with a crescent shape. Procter & Gamble has started increasingly facing consumers as one company, and the new identity system is a part of that effort.
