Meaning and history

Diners Club International Logo history


Diners Club International Logo 1950

The original Diners Club International logo was a pretty refined one. The handwritten script used for the word “Diner’s” was elegant yet not perfectly legible. The words “the” and “club” featured a simple type, which also had a subtle legibility issue due to its structure.


Diners Club International Logo 1967

The design was completely redrawn. The name of the brand was now given in an austere sans serif type inside a white rectangle with blue trim. The rectangle was surrounded by various icons showing the products and services available.

It was on the 1967 logo that the “DC” symbol appeared for the first time. The symbol depicted the two letters in the form of a circle with a vertical bar going through its center.


Diners Club International Logo 1978

The “DC” symbol now dominated the design. This time, it was placed inside a dark blue ellipse. It was not at the center of the ellipse but moved to its left side.

The name of the company could be seen below. The type was somewhat reminiscent of a handwritten script, although the letters did not look casual and were legible enough.


Diners Club International Logo 2008

The ellipse grew somewhat shorter in comparison with the “DC” symbol, so the blue space was reduced. The writing moved to the right of the emblem. The type was not italicized anymore and it looked simpler.


The design was slightly refreshed, although its overall look has remained unchanged.
