Meaning and history

Capital One Logo history

The American credit-card titan headquartered in Tysons Corner, Virginia, has redesigned its logo more than once since it was established in 1988.

1994 – 2008

The old Capital One logo consisted of just a wordmark with the company’s name. It featured slightly tilted extended sans serif for the word “Capital”, probably custom designed. Flimsy serif font Minion Italic appeared in the word “One” which was also tilted and subscript. The first letters in both words were uppercase, while the rest were lowercase.

2008 – 2016

In 2008, Capital One adopted a new official logo. It was almost the same emblem with the only difference that it had a swoosh arcing from the letter “O” to the left above the wordmark.
The novelty was supposed to become the company’s signature symbol and to attract people. But it so happened that the new Capital One logo, referred to as the boomerang, was criticized. The company followed the trend that ended ten years ago.

2016 – Today

The current version looks pretty much the same. The most notable difference is that the red swoosh has lost the gradient. Due to this, the emblem looks flat now.
