Logos can be very important no matter what business you’re in. Big companies invest a lot of money in unique logos that can express their business beliefs, their services or the products they sell. Practically, the logo represents the symbol of the company, thus the entire meaning of a company reducing to a symbol.
Logos have to be expressive and show the viewer a comprehensive image of the company bearing that logo. That’s the way with airline companies also and that’s why almost every time you see an airline company logo you see… wings, birds or airplanes. This is because it’s meant to make you instantly understand it’s something related to flying when you see the logo. Branding is greatly important and its core extends to logo design. With the company name comes a logo and a catchy tagline and many companies either use a depiction of an airplane, shapes that resemble wings or other minimalist and conceptual symbols related to the country of origin of the company.
