  • Meaning and history Mobil is a brand with a very intense and rich history, which dates back to 1892 when the Standard Oil Company of New York was established.
  • Then, in the 1930s the Mobiloil and Mobilgas brands appeared, and, finally, in 1955, Mobil became an official name, recognized and respected worldwide.
  • 1892 — 1904 The very first logo, created for Standard Oil Company of New York, was introduced in 1892 and can be called the first Mobil emblem.
  • The color palette featured such shades as yellow, red, black, and gray.
  • 1904 — 1908 The emblem, the company used at the beginning of the 20th century was more modern and classy, featuring a circular badge in dark blue with a thin red outline, it what a switched stylized lettering placed around a shield-like cream badge in the center of the circle.
  • 1904 — 1932 The first iconic gargoyle appeared on the Mobil visual identity in 1904.
  • 1911 — 1931 Another iconic symbol, a Pegasus, became a part of the company’s visual identity in 1911, to balance the strong and dangerous look of the gargoyle, Pegasus was drawn in white and had a thin black outline, which made the image graceful and light.
  • 1931 — 1932 The first logo for Mobiloil was composed of a red gargoyle placed above the black serif lettering in a title case.
  • The “Gargoyle” inscription was arched above the image, executed in all capitals of a custom sans-serif font.
  • It was a modern and clean logo, which brilliantly reflected the character of the brand and its values.
  • 1932 — 1939 For Mobilgas the company used the same logo, but with a dark blue wordmark and a fancy shield-like frame in the same color, there was also a delicate red tagline “Socony – Vacuum”, but it only stayed with the brand for seven years and then got removed.
  • 1939 — 1955 After the redesign of 1939, the Pegasus gained a blue outline and the frame was changed to a circular one.
  • 1955 — 1966 The first logo for Mobil was introduced in 1955 and kept the color palette and the iconic symbol.
  • It was a bold blue wordmark in a title case executed in a condensed sans-serif typeface and placed above the delicate red Pegasus silhouette.
  • The framing of the logo was composed of two parts — the rectangular blue one on top, and a bold triangular in red, on the bottom.
  • Though the logo stayed with the brand for less than a decade, it is still very recognizable across the globe.
  • The red Pegasus sometimes appears neat in the logotype, but the official version of the logo featured only the wordmark, which looks simple yet powerful and exquisite.
  • The first letter of the company’s name is capitalized.
  • Color The characteristic red-and-blue color scheme of the Mobil logo has stayed basically the same since 1932, except for slight alterations of the shades of these colors.
