The iconic Prudential visual identity is instantly recognizable all over the globe. The logo is composed of a light and elegant emblem with a traditional wordmark under it.
The company’s emblem was first created in 1848 and depicted an image of Prudence, one of 4 cardinal virtues, from the painting of Sir Joshua Reynolds. On the first version of the firm’s visual identity the symbol was drawn in detail and depicted a lady standing straight and looking in a hand mirror in her left hand. From the right side of the lads, there was a curved serpent.
