Google's "G" icon is also quite prevalent without requiring Google's full word brand mark to take up any more room than it needs to.

Cadillac Escala Concept teases CT6’s super-luxe big brother

Cadillac has slipped the wraps off its latest concept car, the Escala, at Pebble Beach this evening, and it's a beguiling vision of the brand's next super-luxury sedan. Promising to wrap up both the future of Cadillac's design and technological systems into one sinuous vehicle, the Escala may not reach dealer forecourts in quite this form, but it's certainly a heavy-handed hint as to the American automaker's upcoming assault on Mercedes-Benz's S Class, BMW's 7 Series, and Audi's A8.
