Since 1931, Standard Oil has gone through at least three logotypes. All of them have been based on downward angles given in a clipped and parallel manner. In the two earliest logotypes, blue and red angles had a white angle of the same width in between. In the 1969 version, the blue and red angles grew wider, while the white angle between them grew narrower. The logotype, created by Lippincott Mercer, was also used for the Chevron brand.
