“As you can see in slide two, the Amazon.com logo began as an abstract river design. After a few design changes, in 2000 the logo was re-imagined as the Turner Duckworth design we see today.
In the words of the brand design agency, the smile and arrow says “we are happy to deliver anything, anywhere.”
In an Amazon.com press release from the time, the retailer stated “a smile now begins under the a and ends with a dimple under the z, emphasizing that Amazon offers anything, from A to Z, that customers may be looking to buy online.”
When introduced in the early ’00s, the logo was sometimes animated with the arrow moving under the letters, but it was nixed after some suggested the arrow looked a little, er, phallic”. – mashable.com
