MetLife Logo Meaning and history

Logo MetLife

The second MetLife logo appeared in 1985. The designers who worked on the wordmark decided to modify both the typeface and the shade of blue used. However, the most notable change was the introduction of the beloved cartoon character, Snoopy. The lively character was probably supposed to make the emblem warmer and happier in order to attract more customers.
