Logos

On our 150th birthday in 2014, the agency returned to the J. Walter Thompson name once again. Our new visual identity pushes our pioneering heritage headlong into the future and blends inventive elements with those that have been with us throughout our history.

The J. Walter Thompson logo consists of the J. Walter Thompson office location or entity name wordmark locked up over a watermarked version of the J. Walter Thompson signature. The owl is not the logo, nor is the signature alone.

Our branding uses a two-part naming strategy:

  1. The full "J. Walter Thompson" name, followed by
  2. An identifying entity, which in most cases is the office name

When referring to all of the J. Walter Thompson agencies as a single entity, "J. Walter Thompson Worldwide" is used.
