Castrol are a well known British global brand of oils, greases and similar lubricant products. Castrol is now part of the BP Group of companies, but is retained as a separate brand.
The Castrol identity was a major step forward in development from the previous brand identities. The image recognition was kept and enhanced to endorse the identity into the market place. The logo was developed by Roger Clinton Smith and the team at Design International.
This logo was featured and credited in the book ‘Logo Life – Life Histories of 100 Famous Logos‘ by Ron van der Vlugt
