Why The Word "Livery" For The Branding Design?

Wed Dec 14, 2011 1:18 pm

Where (if anyone knows or can take a guess) the term "Livery" comes from to refer to the branding and graphic design used on the external surface of an aircraft. I looked it up in the dictionary and no part of any definition of the word would give one a clue as to how it got translated to the design on a plane, or truck or anything else: except for use as a way to describe a uniform on a person.

Curious!

Well one of the Merriam-Webster definitions may be on to something:

Quote:
an identifying design (as on a vehicle) that designates ownership
