Yahoo logo history and meaning

Yahoo logo history

Since the company’s inception in 1994, the Yahoo logo has been much the same. Over its history, the logo has gone through five modifications. The pioneer Yahoo logo was just the wordmark written in plain text. The 1995 logo sported a yellow ‘Y man’ leaping over a blue circle, and there was the Yahoo! wordmark beneath. In 1996, the man was gone, and there was only the wordmark written in red letters. This shape was in use until 2009.
