32. Hewlett-Packard Company (HP)

Year Company Founded: 1939

Year Logo Introduced: 1939

Logo Designer: Landor Associates (1999), Liquid Agency (2008)

Company Founders: Bill Hewlett, David Packard

The Hewlett-Packard logo was born in 1939 and remains virtually unchanged to this day. There was talk in 2011 of simplifying and modernizing the logo with angular lines placed at angles mirroring the "h" and "p," but nothing came of it. So, to this day, Hewlett-Packard uses the rounded logotype of "h" and "p," but maybe "if it ain't broke don't fix it;" there is a reason the logo became so iconic to begin with.
