The 50 Most Iconic Brand Logos of All Time

45. Target

Year Company Founded: 1902

Year Logo Introduced: 1962

Logo Designer: Undisclosed

Company Founder: George Dayton

The logo for Target has always been a red target, but when the store was just a small retail store in Minneapolis, the design was a bit more pronounced. The iconic red target logo is recognized almost everywhere, but in the earlier days of the brand, it had a bolded black "Target" across the entirely of the circle, to create a distinctive image in customers' minds. The next logo introduced in 1980 consisted of a single ring and inner core, still in red, and the design on stores today is basically the same, with the retail chain's name under it.
