Amazon, which has evolved to be one of the best online books and electronics providers, has a history. Starting in 1995, Amazon Logo looked like a snaky ‘A’, and today, it is smiling ‘A to Z.’
Amazon has been around since 1994 when Jeff Bezos founded the company in his garage. The company multiplied, and by 1999, it was selling books on CD-ROM discs. By 2002, Amazon had become the world’s largest bookseller.
Today, Amazon sells everything from electronics to clothing to toys. They even sell food! And they do so at prices that are often lower than other companies.

THE MODERN AMAZON LOGO WITH A SMILE (2000)
Design agency Turner Duckworth created the now-iconic logo for Amazon in the year 2000 with a custom typeface. Cleverly, designer Anthony Biles devised a smile that connects the letters A and Z. Jeff Bezos wanted something produced quickly, without the typical market research and focus group feedback process. Reportedly, Bezos jokingly claimed, “Anybody who doesn’t like that logo doesn’t like puppies!”
