Meaning and history

Talbot Logo history

During a pretty long history of the brand, it had two different emblems, which are still very recognizable among the retro car fans. The only thing both logos had in common was a blue and white color palette, though in the earlier version it was complemented by silver or gold, and in the newer — by red when used for printed materials.

The first logo was composed of a blue background with a thick white diagonal line, coming from the bottom left side to the upper right. Sometimes the emblem had a shield-shape, and sometimes it was enclosed in a circle with a laurel wreath and a small gold crown.

As for the latest version of the Talbot visual identity, it was very stylish and modern. A bold geometric letter “T” in a circular frame was complemented by the “Talbot” wordmark under it. The lettering in all capitals was executed in a custom sans-serif typeface with thick staring lines and diagonal cuts of the “T” horizontal bar.

The logo was drawn in white, dark blue and red, and usually exposed on a light blue background. When placed on the company’s cars, the badge was executed in silver and looked professional and strict, yet due to the thickness of the lines and their volume, it was a very solid and stylish badge.
