Designed by Allan Flemming in 1959, the CN mark is a truly timeless design. There’s an interesting story behind this one too. It goes like this; As Flemming was flying on an airplane bound for New York City, he sketched up the idea for the CN logo on a cocktail napkin. Whether it’s true of not, I have no idea, but I can say that it gives the piece an exciting bit of history behind it. As one of the most significant brand marks ever, the CN mark was used as the Canadian National Railway logo and really took its place in history along with the name of its revolutionary designer.
