Exelon Logo Design
Exelon logo has gone through some changes through a small period of time. Original Exelon logo was designed as the name of the corporation written in blue font with the “E” capitalized and the “o” was the symbol of an electrical switch referencing to energy and electric power of course. The “o” was green to show that corporation is taking environmental issues into consideration. The logo lacked the creativity and was like a cliché for every institution or company related to energy business.
Designed by Futurebrand, Exelon logo design was changed completely. The new logo highlights the name of the corporation in a lighter blue than original one and with a normal “o” lettrer beside a flag like shape of three colors, blue, orange and green. It is noticed that the flag represents the “E” initial of Exelon. It is actually far more creative and it provides the company the branding flag which is every corporation’s dream. The three lines reflect the goal of the company’s commitment to progress, customers and sustainability.
Exelon’s Constellation business unit had a nice but somehow classy logo. It was like a sun or star inside a blue circle. Exelon Constellation business unit has acquired a new more professional logo typical to the parent, Exelon Company. The idea about having same logo is not common but actually they support each other. In simple words, they market for each other.
