eBay.com started as an auction site in September of 1995 under the name AuctionWeb. The first logo that it put up was simple black text that said Auction logo on a black and white gradient bar. This logo was apparently referred to as the "Death Bar" logo.

The current logo was designed by Bill Cleary of the CKS group. The current logo was picked out of the many logos that were designed. Some of the key aspects are listed below

The primary colors of the logo depict fun, excitement and childlike energy.

The overlapping letters of the logo are suggestive of the bonding within the eBay user community.

The letters are not on the same level, they have what graphic artists call "baseline shift". It gives the logo an offbeat feel and shows that company is not averse to change and that its a dynamic company that is always evolving.

The unusual capitalization of the letters also shows that company accepts change when it is for good. Letter B is not capitalized in the logo even though the name of the company is written as eBay. Designers at CKS thought a capital B would look like a roadblock in the middle of the logo so they capitalized letter Y instead.
