Osram logo and symbol, meaning, history, PNG

  • Download PNG Osram Logo PNG For much of its history, the emblem of OSRAM Licht AG, a lighting manufacturer based in Munich, Germany, revolved around the light bulb.
  • The current Osram logo, though, is a simple wordmark without the pictorial part.
  • Meaning and history The word “Osram” comes from the 1906 patent for the incandescent lamp developed by Carl Auer von Welsbach.
  • However, the company under this name was formed only in 1919 as a result of a collaboration between Auergesellschaft, Siemens & Halske, and Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft.
  • The light bulb emblem was introduced in the early twenties.
  • Originally, there was a tiny pointed pimple on the bulb apex – it was used because at that era the air was sucked out from the bottom so as to make the bulb sealed from there.
  • Several years later, a new approach started to be used: the air was now removed from the top.
  • You can already see this in the 1928 logo.
  • Over time, there was some playing around with the shape of the oval, the trim, the shades, and the type.
  • Yet, the overall style remained pretty much the same.
  • Around 2000, the brand returned to its heritage.
  • The logo now featured the word “Osram” in blue over the light bulb, which was now turned upside down.
  • The orange ellipse returned, too.
  • Eventually, the Osram logo was reduced to a wordmark in an austere sans.
