In the days leading up to the launch of the GEICO credit card, GEICO CEO and co-founder David Samson told investors the company was aiming to change the way people shop and how they make purchases.
The goal was to make it easier for customers to shop, he said, adding that the company had a “tremendous success story” with its customers, but it would also create a “powerful customer experience.”
In a blog post at the time, Samson said GEICO had the technology, the people and the market to become the first online card issuer to become a $100 billion company and to become “the premier online card payment provider.”
By the time the new logo was unveiled in September 2018, the company’s share price had doubled, and its market cap had ballooned from $4 billion to $9 billion.
GEICO was in a position to change its image, Samson wrote, and it was “important to have an honest, transparent, and thoughtful design for our customers.”
In the meantime, the GE logo has been around for more than 100 years, but the company took the plunge to redesign it.
A few months after the company announced the new design, GE posted an article on its website with a logo that featured a sunburst with the word “GEICO” and a sun, the words “GE” and “ICO” emblazoned in big letters in black ink.
The logo was also featured prominently on the back of GEICO cards and a handful of other products, including a $1.25 GEICO gift card.
But for those who have never seen the new redesign, the old logo was more than a little confusing.
The new logo is far more neutral.
It has no sunburst and it has a sun on the lower half of the logo.
It’s not a sun.
It says “GEICO.”
There’s no sun.
And there’s no moon.
The GEICO name is a lot simpler, and less ambiguous, and in the logo’s place is the word, “Eco-friendly.”
GEICO has always been a brand that sells energy, and the GE brand is meant to connect with people.
But this redesign was a bit of a departure from that, said Elizabeth Riggs, who writes about branding and identity for the business website Business Insider.
She described the new brand as “a little less cool,” and said the new branding made the company feel “less like a company and more like an app,” a point she acknowledged.
“The idea of making a change like this is that it feels like a very conscious effort to be more inclusive, to bring in more diversity into the brand,” Riggs said.
The decision to change GEICO’s logo wasn’t as simple as just moving the letters from the logo to the nameplate.
The company had to consider the logo, which was based on an image from the 1880s and the 1890s, as well as the design of the card, Riggs told Business Insider, noting that the logo was based in a specific era and could have been updated based on the changing landscape.
The old logo had a very clear look to it and it also featured an image of a sun with the words GEICO on the sunburst.
“That logo had been very familiar to me for a long time,” Rigg said.
“I remember looking at the image of the sun in the 1860s and thinking, ‘This looks really cool.
It just looks like it could be a sun.’
I remember thinking, that’s the sun I want to see.'”
This wasn’t the first time the logo had changed in its history, and that didn’t mean the logo wasnít influenced by the modern design.
In 2013, GE announced the company would change its logo to reflect a shift in consumer preferences in favor of green and other natural resources, including water and energy.
The change was announced at the companyís first major shareholder meeting in April, which brought together GEICOís top executives and shareholders.
“This new GE logo is not a reflection of the brand changes we’ve made,” a spokesperson for the company told Business Wire at the start of the companyís changeover.
“It reflects our commitment to creating an environment where customers are empowered to create the products and services they want to buy.”
GEICO also introduced a new logo in 2019, which featured a white sunburst that was also a reference to the GE-branded oil and gas products that it offers.
GEICOs new logo, as seen on the company website, was also inspired by the company logo.
GE’s logo, designed in 2013 and first released in 2019.
GE, which is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, was the first U.S. bank to open a digital wallet in 2017, and is known for offering the most convenient, secure and convenient online payment options.
