InterBank 1966 Logo

Master Charge


Master Charge logo

MasterCard was launched as Master Charge in 1969.



MasterCard 1979

In late 1979, Master Charge became MasterCard.


MasterCard 1990

The font was changed and italicized, and the intersection of the circles was changed to horizontal stripes.


MasterCard 1997

In 1997, a drop shadow was added to the lettering and the number of interlacing lines were reduced. Though a new corporate logo was introduced in 2006, this logo remains in use on the cards themselves.


MasterCard 2016

On July 14, 2016, the company changed its logo for the first time in nearly 20 years. The text was moved off the circles, and the circles were changed back to the original interlocking state, using the same colors as the 1990 and 1997 logos, with the newly-restored orange interlocking middle. A similar design was later used for all of MasterCard's brands.  It was universally adopted since October 2016.
