Brunswick 1

Brunswick (Canada) / c. 1957

Design: The Brunswick logo has been redrawn in beautiful pen-influenced lettering which, in pre-WWI fashion, follows the outer curve; up to this point in time the logo had always run straight across. For design reasons, the underlining swash has been dropped. The graphics have been refined to a powerful simplification of the American flag: a single star and stripe.

History: Launched in 1916 in Canada, the Brunswick label was sold to Warner Bros. in 1930, CBS in 1938, Decca in 1941, and finally, in the early 1970s, to MCA.
