Samsung logo

Here we get to the company that currently rules the mobile phone market. In 2017, Samsung’s market cap was 22%, and it has always been a leader from the standpoint of sales, market share, and overall product quality.

In fact, the company founded by a Korean Byung-Chull Lee didn’t have a logo until 1958, and it hardly resembled what it is now. The previous logos represented television and telecommunications, while the modern logo symbolizes universe and company’s ever-lasting success.

As you see, company logos usually represent their activity, or growth and success the owners wish for their initiatives.
