Meaning and history

InterContinental logo history

1995 – 2002

InterContinental Logo-1946
Their oldest logo is a blue rectangle with a golden emblem in the top half, and the wordmark section in the bottom. The emblem is a sort of vertical oval with two sharp edges and a big blue ‘I’ in the center. The wordmark is written in capital white letters, using a serif font. Below it, there’s also a white line separating it from the words ‘hotels and resorts’ made in a very similar style.

2002 – Today

In 2002, they remodeled the emblem into a 3D image with brown framing and a white ‘I’ instead of a blue one. The colored background was gone, as well. As for the text bit, they got rid of everything save the name itself and wrote it in a more pleasant grey font.
