Established in 1986, Repsol (an initialism of Refinería de Petróleos plus the word “Sol”, Sun in Enlgish) is a Spanish and Argentinian oil and gas company specializing in the exploration and production of oil and natural gas, its refining, marketing, and distribution. Repsol counts with more than 25,000 employees in over 35 countries. This week, Repsol introduced an evolution to its logo as it announced a strategic plan for the next years. No design credit given other than an ambiguously worded comment that the project “was carried out by Repsol employees as well as external public, providers, image experts, investors, journalists and opinion leaders and is the result of a rigorous process which began in 2011.”
Established in 1905, Club Atlético Boca Juniors (Boca Juniors for short and Boca for even shorter) is one of the best soccer teams in the world and the history of the sport. Based in the La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Boca has won 51 national and international titles, including the most recent championship title of Argentina’s premier league. Beyond soccer, Boca Juniors also manages teams in other sports like basketball and volleyball, runs 24 soccer schools around the world, and even has its own hotel, Hotel Boca. At the end of April, Boca Juniors introduced a new global identity for all of its different properties, designed by Buenos Aires-based BridgerConway. From what I understand, this new logo does not replace the team’s shield but rather acts as a complement and endorser.
