A logo is a graphic mark or emblem commonly used by commercial enterprises, organizations and even individuals to aid and promote instant public recognition. Logos are either purely graphic (symbols/icons) or are composed of the name of the organization (a logotype or wordmark).
A company logo is often considered the most critical element of a corporate brand.
Check out how these famous brands have altered their logos — for better or for worse — since they originally opened their doors.
Bell Telephone Company designed the original logo in 1900. In 1964 the "AT&T" of Bell Telephone Company became the dominate element of the corporate identity. Eventually dropping the Bell all together in 1970, the latest AT&T logo was released in 2005.

Kobe Bryant turns 34 this week and the future Hall of Famer has accomplished quite a lot in his career.
Bryant ranks third and fifth on the league's all-time post-season scoring and all-time regular season scoring lists, respectively. He is also the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history. Since his second year in the league, Bryant has been selected to start every NBA All-Star Game that has been held in the last fourteen years. He has won the All-Star MVP Award four times (2002, 2007, 2009, and 2011), tying him for the most All Star MVP Awards in NBA history. He is a 14-time member of the All-NBA team and an 12-time member of the All-Defensive team; he is also the youngest player ever to receive defensive honors. At the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, he won gold medals as a member of the USA national team. In 2009, Sporting News and TNT named Bryant the top NBA player of the 2000s decade.
Although Kobe still plays at a high level, he has admitted that his career will be coming to end in the coming future.
The 2011-12 season didn't end the way Kobe wanted it to, but winning the gold in the London 2012 Olympics could be the momentum Kobe and the Lakers need for the coming 2012 season.
