Quiz: Do you know these 50 famous companies by their logos?

Stacker Logo By Annalise Mantz of Stacker | Slide 1 of 101: When it comes to branding, a logo is everything. Create a good one, and you have a recognizable icon for your company or organization that will be immediately identifiable. Fall short on the design, though, and you may be subjected to ridicule and derision—or worse, apathy.

It happens time and time again. Take fast-fashion company Zara's recent rebrand: Even though the brand's overall style remained the same, customers almost universally hated the new, tightly kerned logo. And that's just the most recent example. Other losing logos include Slack's controversial rebrand, the London 2012 Summer Olympics, Pepsi's less-than-successful redesign, and Sherwin-Williams' ominous “Cover the World” logo. Redesigns aren't only a PR move, either—they can be big business, with some of the most expensive ringing in at well over $1 million.

But enough with the negativity. What about those logos that are so brilliant you know them in a flash?
