Designer:  Landor Associates
Typography:  Helvetica Neue Black Italic

In June 2000, Bell Atlantic acquired GTE Corporation, and merged with them to become Verizon Communications (a combination of the Latin word "veritas" (meaning "truth") and "horizon"), or simply, Verizon.

The first Verizon logo, created by Landor Associates, has been universally panned by the graphic design community, and is often regarded one of the worst logos ever made. The white version of this logo still exists on some items such as phone cards, while the logo itself continues to be used on their buildings and payphones, as well as some affiliate stores.

2015–present

Verizon introduced a new logo designed by Pentagram on September 2, 2015, phasing out the red "z" and moving the checkmark next to the "n". Sometimes, only the checkmark is used.
