Duke Energy logo new old evolution history design

Duke Energy, which is counted among the largest electric power holding companies in the US, has introduced an all-new logo following its merger with Progress Energy Inc – another energy giant. The old Duke Energy logo depicted an acute, shrill red-colored “D”. The new design features significantly gentler blue and green colors, incorporating the star emblem of Progress while also taking in the swoosh from Duke’s D.

The new logo, scheduled to take effect in early 2013, portrays the company’s “commitment to sustainability, technology and energy efficiency” while “representing energy for the future”, according to Duke officials.

Australian Court endorses cigarette pack logo ban

Author: Mohib


Perhaps one of the strictest laws in the world on cigarette advertising, Australia’s highest court declared on August 15 that tobacco companies in the country will not be able to display their logos on cigarette packs. According to the court’s order, instead of tobacco company emblems, graphic photographs of smoking’s health effects such as cancer-riddled mouths, sickly children and blinded eyeballs would be featured on a plain, olive-colored cigarette packet.
