* The vast majority of game consoles have one of these, starting with the Sega Genesis's stylized typeface. Then the SNES's four circles (not used in North America for some reason), the PlayStation "PS" logo, the Saturn orb, the Nintendo64's N-cube, [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]]'s G-cube, PS2 (and PSP)'s line-art, the Dreamcast spiral, The Nintendo DS and 3DS logo with stacked O's, Xbox's green X, and now, the Wii and Wii U's stylized typeface, the PS3 and PS4's initial stylized typeface, and the Xbox 360 and Xbox One X-sphere.
** The [=PS3=] has switched to line-art similar to what the [=PS2=] used. The initial PS3 logo typeface is perfectly recognizable -- the same one used for the live-action ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' movies' logos!

* The Creator/{{NBC}} peacock logo (in various guises) has been in use since the early days of color television. It even got a ShoutOut in a Disney animation in which Professor von Drake explains the color spectrum.
** In fact, they were ''the'' first network with (NTSC) color (the origin of the logo was to advertise this fact), and even boasted by 1965 that they were the "all-color network" (not ''quite'' true, but still...)

* Outright anything Saul Bass has ever made. Such as the Alcoa logo, the AT&T logo, the Avery (now Avery Dennison) paperclip triangle, the Dixie design, the Creator/GeffenRecords "G" globe, the Girl Scouts of the USA logo, the Creator/HannaBarbera swirling star, the Warner Communications/Warner Bros. "Big W"... These and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Bass#Logos_and_other_designs so many others]] have been used for decades now and they've truly remain to be some of his greatest things. Despite the increasingly frequent waves of corporate re-branding as of 2011 the average lifespan of a Bass logo is more than [[http://annyas.com/saul-bass-logo-design-then-now/ 34 years]].

** While the swoop and the color scheme has remained the same throughout the series, the words "Indiana Jones" didn't appear in the orange-red swoopy typeface until "Temple of Doom." The swoopy red-orange type first appears in the ''Raiders of the Lost Ark'' movie poster, but not in the actual film credits.

See also ConspiracyPlacement, LogoJoke. A {{Mascot}} might be part of the [[http://www.grafitive.com/ logo]]. These are often used as a VanityPlate. If the organization in question decides to invoke this by placing their logo on everything in sight, you're looking at a case of SigilSpam.
