Ausserdem haben sie sich ein Tumblelog zum Jubiläum angeschafft, auf dem sie unter anderem die Geschichte ihres Logos erzählen:

Legend has it that Carl Laemmle named the company after seeing a “Universal Pipe Fittings” truck pass by his New York office window. Though our name may have been inspired by a whim, today Universal is considered a pioneer in cinematic history. Our logo symbolizes the films we’ve created which have not only impacted millions, but also helped tell the story of filmmaking.

The Universal logo has gone on to change over the years since 1912. From the silent logo of UNIVERSAL FILMS encircling the globe…to the ‘droning propeller plane circling the globe’ that marked the arrival of sound…and finally, to today’s more modern and vivid Universe—the Universal logo has reflected the evolution of film.
