Meaning and history Xerox logo

history Xerox logo

Over its existence and since the Haloid era, the company has had 11 logo versions. The first one (1906) was an image of a torch stick with an oval plate with “Haloid” inscribed on it. The next Xerox logo was accepted in 1938: that was a rectangle with rounded corners sporting the torch and the company name on a black background. Ten years later, a new Xerox logo was introduced: the rectangle was still there, and, as the company changed its name, a beige X mark and the company name “Xerox” were added. The logo was modified in the next year: it used the 1938 rectangle and the “X + company name” combination from its predecessor, except the X mark was red. In 1958, the rectangle changed color to dark red, the X mark was dropped, and the full company name – Haloid Xerox – was introduced. In 1961, the rectangle disappeared. There was just the Xerox wordmark written in huge blue caps and ‘Corporation’ underneath written in smaller gray letters. In 1968, the “Corporation” was gone, and the “Xerox” part was left, and it was a little lighter blue. This logo lasted until 1994: the new one consisted of the company’s designation – “The Document Company” written in black, and “Xerox” below in red. In the 2002 variant the combination remained the same, and the font size was changed: the former was written in a much smaller typerface, and the “Xerox” part was magnified. In 2004, the “The Document Company” was dropped, leaving the company name alone.
