1946 - 1969 LogoThe original Mountain Dew logo. Used from the beginning on glass bottles all the way until the 1969, when it was retired. It has recently made a comeback on Throwback's current packaging. Due to shifts in pop culture and popularity they changed the design.
1969 - 1996 Logo
Found on packaging as 1969, this retro-style logo (and multiple variations of it) was used all the way until the mid 90's. Throwback used this logo in its first release and the Malt Flavor Johnson City Gold from the regional Dew promotion used this as a few Green Label art aluminum bottles and as well as special glass bottles of the drink.
1969 - 1980 variationThis logo version had a pointed “D”, called the “Wave”, which was later removed. This logo ran for about 11 years before it was modified..
1980 - 1996 variation
This version of the logo was the same as before but the pointed “D” was changed. This logo ran for about 16 years until it was replaced. In 1991, it was made thinner and taller.
1979 - 1980 Prototype Logo
This logo was seldom seen and could have been conceptualized about the same time as the “Reach for the Sun, Reach for Mountain Dew” or “Taste the Sunshine” campaigns.
1996 - 1999 LogoFound on packaging from as early as 1996 to as late as 1999, this logo served as somewhat of a bridge between the previous and the next. This logo only ran for about 4 years, making it the shortest running logo (that wasn’t a test logo or limited run).
1990's Eurasian Logo
In the 1990's, Mountain Dew products in Asia began using this logo, which had a completely different typeface than the United States logo and was surrounded by "WILD COLOUR" and "SMOOTH TASTE". Also, when Mountain Dew was released in the United Kingdom in 1996, it used this logo, which was used all the way up until it was discontinued in those countries due to low sales.
1991 "Vintage" LogoIn 1991, some Mountain Dew cans began using this logo, which had a different typeface and as well as a banner below the logo reading "THE ORIGINAL". This logo was also used on Diet packaging and was discontinued a year later. Also, this logo was released in Japan and Dry Ginger used a variation of this logo when it was released in there in 1990.
1999 Prototype LogoIn 1999, there was a unused prototype version of the 1999 - 2005 logo. The only differences was that the font was a little different than the final version of the prototype logo. This prototype logo was only founded in unused metal bottle caps. There was a another diet logo version founded on other bottle caps with this logo.
1999 - 2005 LogoThis logo premiered on New Years’ Day, 1999, and lasted until 2005. During this time, Code Red, Live Wire, Pitch Black, Baja Blast, and Blue Shock Freeze all entered the market, and thus used variations of this logo.
2005 - 2009 Logo
In 2005, this logo began appearing on packaging, with the words: "Same Dew, New View." All pre-existing flavor variants used their own version of this logo and all new flavors used it until 2009.
2009 Prototype LogoThis was the prototype logo for Mountain Dew, which premiered in 2009. Images began spreading of bottle designs for Regular Mountain Dew, Diet Mountain Dew, and Mountain Dew Voltage using this logo but it was not well received, because it somehow looked more like a generic brand. It was only used in a test run in the city of Chicago.
2009 - 2017 LogoThis was the previous logo, which premiered in 2009 on the regular and Diet packaging. All new flavors (except Throwback) after this transition used this logo starting with the 2009 WoW Game Fuel flavors and as well as Diet Ultra Violet.
2017 - Present Logo
Starting in 2017, the logo was slightly modified, the background on bottles, cans and 12 pack boxes was changed from dark green mountains to a more brightly colored abstract variety of greens and black which is similar to the one used on many European cans.
With the re-branding of the Mountain Dew line in Canada beginning in February 2012, this logo was specially designed to be used on its packaging. It was based directly off the current logo used in the United States, but the word "Mountain" is not abbreviated. In January 2017, Mountain Dew Canada announced that they would be re-branding to the American logo.
The majority of countries switched to the new Mountain Dew logo in 2017 and 2018. Only very few Countries like Japan, China, Brazil and Turkey still use the old Logo.
Logos in other Languages
Mostly in Asian countries, bilingual cans and bottles were released.
Some of them had a 2nd logo in the 2nd language.
