I'm looking for 50 existing company logos image URLs and 50 company mottos/ taglines. It must not be "the definite current" logo, just something working. However, the logo may not include a tagline. For both logos and mottos it would be nice to have a great diversity of types of companies (pharmaceutical, food chains, computer manufacturers, car makers and so on). The companies must be current, but the mottos can also be historical mottos that have now been changed (but all English mottos please). Ideally please use well-known logos. The mottos can be both well-known or more exotic, pls mix both...

My idea for this is to write a little program that takes a random logo and puts a random tagline below it, I just want to see if it's causing interesting juxtapositions!

Thanks!


A list of this format (semicolons behind the mottos, just in case they break in two lines):

Dear j_philipp,
I just want to make sure that I'm on the right lines. Is this what you mean? The early ones have several motor companies, but that's just the way they came out in my research.

Sorry, just another question. I'm finding a lot of what would be best described as advertising slogans, as opposed to a motto or tagline which is often a registered trademark for the company. Do you what well known slogans as well?

Please find listed below 52 links to logos and the relevant tagline, motto or slogan. The vast majority are taglines or mottos. There are a few slogans from historical advertisements, but I tried to clear away from them as most were for an individual product. I checked with each corporate site in turn to ensure that the tagline/motto was relevant and that they were large corporations and internationally well known. There are, however, plenty more available should you wish to use them. I list below four sites which I used in this research and that may assist you. For various reasons not all the images are sourced to the corporate site.

http://www.historyofbranding.com/slogans.html
http://www.textart.ru/database/slogan/list-advertising-slogans.html

Do not hesitate to ask for clarification of any of this research, or if you want to reject some of my selections.

Philipp,

I tried your "logomotto"...it randomly matched Durex with "A passion to perform."  Definitely got a chuckle out of me.

Many thanks for the tip. There's some interesting results. I wonder what would have happened if you had gone for more advertising slogans?

Do you have some examples? Maybe we can add those as a follow-up question...

I was think something on these lines:

Business is beautiful - Sprint Nextel Corporation
Come and get your love. - Alltel
Don't just sit there. Okay, just sit there. - ABC
Buy it. Sell it. Love it. - eBay
Where Girls Grow Strong - Girl Scouts of the USA
Hello boys - Playtex Wonderbra
Life is short. Play hard. - Reebok
The next best thing to naked! - Jockey
Performance First - honda

The only thing is that some advertisements may be country or regional specific only.

Hmm, yeah, I don't know most of these unfortunately (I'm from Germany...).

By the way, I also included some corporations and even two countries on Logomotto now, it causes interesting juxtapositions. Maybe if you have more ideas along those lines...

I knew you were from Germany that's why I tried to keep most of them international corporations. That's the trouble with adverts, they're regional or country based.

Here’s a few more taglines or mottos for free. Otherwise, I’m not sure where to go from here - I'm not as creative as you!

This site has a wealth of logos, though you'd have to go to the individual subpages in order to get better-sized images:

On my screen Durex matched up with "Let's get it done."
