How Walmart got colorful logo?
Original Walmart logo was rather simple. The company’s name was Wal-mart back then. Then they decided to add a small star as a decoration and the world split in two – Wal and mart. Old Walmart logo color solution was quite basic as well – white letters on a brick-red shield. Simultaneously, a short slogan was formed: “Always low prices”. However, it was fresh and original idea for those years and the company lasted for many years with this design solution. Walmart logo history can’t boast a variety of changes, and it wasn’t until 2008 when Walmart adopted vector graphics and decided to rebrand.
