– The Sony logo is as simple as they get: simply the brand’s four letter name, written in black, over a white background. Anyone passionate about gadgets and technology in general is bound to recognize the name and the logo almost immediately, since the company is one of the leading names in the electronics industry. The place of origin for this brand is Japan, but today the company is a multinational one consisting of conglomerate businesses, though the main headquarters remain in Tokyo.
– The company was founded on the 7th of May 1946 by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita, and its name was chosen because it derives from the Latin word sonus, meaning sound. As a funny side-note, another reason for which the founders chose this name is because of the English slang word “sonny", which was popular in Japan in the late 40s; and the meaning of this slang word was “smart and presentable young man". The company focuses mainly on electronics, but has also expanded to include the production of motion pictures, music, financial services, and some medical services as well.
