Frank M. Robinson, the accountant for John Pemberton, "thinking the two 'Cs' would look good together" first penned the now world famous Coca-Cola script logo in 1886.

Patent Office. The logo to the left is from an an prior to 1993 and does not have the "Trademark Registered" identification in the tail of the 'C' the way it was standardized a few years later.
