In the 1964 version, the lightning with a ring was used in a yellow rectangle, with the Opel writing below. The whole logo was again delimited by a black rectangle. The basic form and proportions of the Blitz logo has remained unchanged since the 1970 version, which made the lightning tails shorter so that the logo could fit proportionately within a yellow square, meaning it could be displayed next to the ‘blue square’ General Motors logo. In the mid 1970s, the Vauxhall “Griffin” logo was, in turn, resized and displayed within a corresponding red square, so that all three logos could be displayed together, thus signifying the unified GM Europe.

When a company sets out to design their logo, there are number of psychological factors than go into it. Many of these logos have a story behind them, but ultimately the design is supposed to resonate with you on a psychological level. Let’s explore the factors that go into designing a logo.

The term “logo” comes from the Greek word “Logos” which means “word.” The process starts here because you’re creating a visual word that not only says something, but it also embodies it and represents it. Ultimately the psychology of your logo entails how the sight of it trigger past experiences, memories, and opinions.

While some places will tell you that each color has a distinct emotion attached to it, that’s simply not the case. Colors have a variety of psychological emotions attached to them and it’s these emotions that come through when you see them. While it may be tempting to throw in as many colors as possible, ultimately logos tend to use only a couple so as not to distort the message of the brand.

In the early 1920s, Opel became the first German car manufacturer to incorporate a mass-production assembly line in the building of their automobiles. In 1924, they used their assembly line to produce a new open two-seater called the Laubfrosch (Tree frog). The Laubfrosch was finished exclusively in green lacquer. The car sold for an expensive 4,500 marks (expensive considering the less expensive manufacturing process), but by the 1930s, this type of vehicle would cost a mere 1,990 marks – due in part to the assembly line, but also due to the skyrocketing demand for cars. Adam Opel led the way for motorized transportation to become not just a means for the rich, but also a reliable way for people of all classes to travel.

In 1935, Opel became the first German car manufacturer to produce over 100,000 vehicles a year. This was based on the popular Opel “P4” model. The selling price was a mere 1,650 marks and the car had a 23 hp (17 kW) 1.1 L four-cylinder engine and a top speed of 85 km/h (53 mph).

The next step for Opel was the resumption of passenger car production. It might have seemed easiest to bring back the Kapitän first, since its engine was already in production for the truck, but occupation regulations restricted German civilians to cars of 1.5 L or less, which made the Olympia the obvious candidate. Under Dr. Ing e.h. Karl Stief, who had been chief engineer at Opel since 1934, useful changes were made to this tough little car. The Dubonnet front suspension was replaced by a conventional coil-and-wishbone layout and the steering was correspondingly rearranged.

Many people say that, in order for a car to function for as long a time as possible, it must be German. Of course, not all German car brands enjoy the same outstanding reputation, but most of them do. Whoever has driven a BMW or has owned an Audi knows they’re into serious stuff. Expensive to maintain, but nonetheless serious. The same is true for costly Porsche or even Mercedes.

It is not for nothing that Ferruccio Lamborghini, the world famous Italian manufacturer of luxury sports cars, has chosen a raging bull as a distinctive emblem for his cars. Being a Taurus by zodiac sign, Lamborghini has also had a passion for bullfighting. He was greatly impressed by the bulls of Spanish breeder Don Eduardo Miura and began to put gold charging bulls on his cars emphasizing their power, force and grace. Moreover, many Lamborghini car models got the name of famous bulls: Lamborghini Islero, for example, was named in honor of the animal which killed renowned matador Manolete in 1947.
