Did you know the founders of Cisco were inspired by the Golden Gate Bridge to create Cisco’s logo. Cisco’s name is also derived from San Francisco.

They hoped the logo would shape the future, “convey something about creating an authentic life and making a living at something you believe in, in a place you love, with people you really like to be with”.
