The Meaning Behind Nvidia's 'All-Seeing Eye' Logo
Nvidia’s green eye logo says a lot about the company — for starters, the company’s name itself means “envy” in Latin, and Nvidia reportedly used the tagline "green with envy" in promoting some of its graphics processing units (GPUs). Although this alone goes fittingly well with its logo and color scheme, the word’s etymology is also associated with the word “vision.”
One could argue that Nvidia foresaw a multibillion-dollar industry before it had even bloomed when it was first established in 1993. Now, Nvidia's eye can be found in various graphics and AI-related hardware and software, as well as in the form of a tattoo on the arm of its CEO, Jensen Huang — but vision also plays a major role in the company’s philosophy.
Huang has spoken about the importance of vision in realizing goals, and how he wanted to "democratize" its own graphics hardware and software in hopes of creating a new industry. In a way, Nvidia's eye logo is a fitting representation of how its vision led to its success, while the word "envy" serves as a byproduct of just that when it comes to its competition.
