My focus is mainly on the chrome badges that labeled models of the 1940s–’70s, as celebrated at Chromeography.
Who was generally responsible for designing the emblem? Were they from inside the car company? Did they have lettering experience or were they more often car designers who were handed the job because there was no one better available? Has the situation changed much since then? [more inside]
