DESIGN ELEMENTS OF ARCELORMITTAL LOGO
Shape of the ArcelorMittal Logo:
The ArcelorMittal logo is unique and interesting. In the first glance the logo looks pretty much ordinary, but after proper analysis, we can notice both the letters ‘A’ and the ‘M’ in the logo. The ‘A’ in the logo stands for Arcelor and is reversely formed, which can be clearly seen in the reflection of the mirror. The ‘M’, however, is not easy to locate. If we observe the two arches closely, we will be able to spot the ‘M, which holds resemblance to the arches in the McDonald’s logo. Beneath the symbol, the name of the company “ArcelorMittal” is inscribed.
The ArcelorMittal logo was created by a British company known as Future Brand.
