Title

Examples of the use of Waterworth lens spotlight-styled logo created for the early slide projector range

Description

Clearly drawing inspiration from light and optics, the coloured (red and then later blue) W is spot-lit inside a projector-style lens. The W also symbolises a filament. There are similarities in its postwar style to the Batman logo which was created just a few years before the W logo was designed. The EN Waterworth business commenced soon after the end of World War Two, seguing from making optical lenses, prisms and instruments for the Allied Forces, to designing and producing slide projectors for education departments throughout Australia
