To find the right identity for the new brand, INFINITI held a competition to find the best ideas from the best minds around. The brand looked far and wide for the right logo and slogan, and the winning idea came from the Lippincott Mercer company – and the logo has remained largely unchanged every since. The bold and minimalistic logo became a fixture of every INFINITI vehicle, and the rest is history.
