With time, the home appliance producer has expanded its activity, starting manufacturing refrigerating types of equipment and fire-alarm and security technologies.

1915 – 1944

Carrier Logo 1915

The Carrier logo, created for the company in 1915, featured a solid horizontally placed oval in silver-gray, with a bold serif inscription in a title case. The lettering was written in white with a thin black outline and a wide black shadow. The borrow tails of the first “C” and the last “R” were connected, creating a straight thin underline for the whole lettering.

1944 – 1963

The redesign of 1944 has introduced a modernized version of the Carrier badge, keeping the original composition with the inscription set on a solid horizontally stretched oval. The new version boasted bright blue background and flat white lettering with no outlines or shadows. The wordmark was executed in an italicized serif font with the medium-weight lines of the letters and a very thin white underline of the whole logotype.

1963 – 1992

In 1963 the Carrier logo was redesigned again, switching the color plate to black and white and removing the thin white underline from the composition. The lettering was set in the same italicized serif font, but with cleaner contours and bolder lines of the letters. This badge was in use by the company until the beginning of the 1990s.


1992 – Today

The Carrier logo is dominated by a large blue ellipse with white and blue trim. Inside, there is the white lettering “Carrier.” All the letters except the initial are lowercase.

In comparison with sleek modern logos, the type looks almost elaborate. The softly rounded letters feature strokes of varying lengths, and you can see several unnecessary, from the utilitarian point of view, details. The script is italicized and looks a little like handwriting, although the glyphs are not connected with each other.

Below the ellipse, there is a blue shape featuring the lettering “United Technologies” and a roundel emblem. This addition reminds of the fact that Carrier’s parent company is United Technologies. The ellipse logo is often used on its own, though.


While the company’s corporate font is Helvetica, its logo features a different, more diverse type in comparison with which Helvetica looks pretty austere.
