AOL 2009

On November 23, 2009, AOL unveiled a sneak preview of a new brand identity which has the wordmark "Aol." superimposed onto canvases created by commissioned artists. The new identity, designed by Wolff Olins, was enacted onto all of AOL's services on December 10, the date AOL traded independently for the first time since the Time Warner merger on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol AOL. On its homepage, the logo is presented in white on a background that changes every time the page is refreshed. This logo won 1st place in the 2009 Brand New Awards.

On June 23, 2015, AOL sold its business to US telco Verizon for $4.4 billion. In Summer 2017, AOL and Yahoo!'s Verizon-owned assets will be merged into Oath (currently Verizon Media).
