Baskin Robbins logo
‘Count The Flavours.Where the flavour counts’ Ogilvy & Mather

The cleverly designed text in this logo for the popular world wide chain of ice cream parlours, Baskin Robbins, was launched in 2007 after a campaign to modify their branding. The story behind the previous original logo design came about in 1953 when Burt Baskin (Burt’s Ice Cream Shop) and Irv Robbins (Snowbird Ice Cream) joined hands, forming Baskin Robbins and extending their range of flavours to 31, hence the ’31’ forming part of the B an R. The older versions of their company branding placed the 31 as a direct focus point in pink to signify the pink spoons handed out with samples and blue to represent the quality of the product.

With some careful consideration and effective use of graphics, text and colour, company logo designs can be both intriguing, head turning and unforgettable.
