Changing face of Commodore and the Amiga

Never realised how many images we associate with Commodore and the Amiga - from the C=, Tick, Watermark, "splat" (don't remember this one), 1.3 hand, Boing Ball etc.

I find it kind of strange that the Amiga started out with the tick and ball together in perfect harmony back in the "awld" A1000 days, then stuck with the tick before coming full circle and ending with the ball we still have, for better or worse, today! Yet many like the tick but dislike the ball or vice versa, ruining their once balanced relationship. Only now has BenniP brought these age old allies back together.

What the hell am I on about?


I thought about doing a poll on the best Amiga logo only, but then decided to extended it to all of Commodore products so the famous C= can be included. Perhaps in another we can include ALL retro computer logos such as Acorn, Atari etc - who knows.

Before starting the Commodore poll, we need some entrants. I've put together a preliminary collection. Any of you EABers care to add any nominees? In other words, have I missed any?

the "amiga font" alone... without the boing-ball. Ya know, the one in your collage with the tilted red square over the "I".

That's not something I would relate Commodore to. It came in after Commodore sold the Amiga to Escom.

The original Amiga font embossed into the Amiga cases (right-hand side above the floppy drive on wedge-shaped machines).

This one, in fact:

I'll look into adding these.

StarEye - I should change the title of the thread. Had one idea but decided to extend it to any visual logos we associate with Commodore AND the Amiga.
