Walmart Logo Timeline
Walmart Logo Animation
We’ve come a long way since 1962. As our business has changed, so has our logo. Watch an animated evolution of the Walmart logo.
1962 - 1964
Walmart launched without a true logo. In fact, for the first two years, when the Walmart name appeared in print, the font and style were chosen at the whim of the printer.
1964 - 1981
In 1964, the company selected a font. This “Frontier Font Logo” was the first official and first consistently used logo in our history. It survived for nearly 20 years.
1968 - 1981
Along with the first official logo, we developed a Discount City mark. This mark appeared in print advertising and in-store signage, as well as on employee uniforms and smocks. However, it was never used on exterior building signage or in annual reports.
1981 - 1992
After nearly 20 years, the company dropped the frontier feel of the logo and introduced a fresh new look for Walmart.
1992 - 2008
In 1992, we replaced the hyphen with a star. This logo can still be seen on many of our North American storefronts as we continue to transition hundreds of stores to the newest logo.
2008 - present
In 2008, Walmart underwent the most significant logo change to date, introducing a new font and the iconic spark.
