Brands are continuing to redesign fresh logos that pay homage to its history, legacy and core philosophy.
This year, a brand’s refresh has been usually paired with a refreshed, more general digital interface as demand for easier online experience. This can be seen with the Audi’s new logo and YouTube in similar form with different arrangement also Calvin Klein just changed their logo’s font and Converse move to an even more simplified logo, attributing back to the long-established history of both brands.
And finally after 12 years of the same logo YouTube has . The red "tube" has been moved to the front of the wordmark, and turned into a more recognizable icon.
As well as the new play button icon, which “Christopher” has described as the brand’s “unofficial shorthand”, the online video platform is getting a new typeface, color palette and changes to its desktop and mobile application.
The new identity, although expected to take a full year to completely roll out, its more designed to spirit youth.
The new logo replaces the previous wordmark, which had a star in the letter 'O', with a new wordmark and placement of the star chevron above it.
“The company’s new purpose statement says Converse provides youth with "tools that enable movement(s)", referring to physical activity and cultural change. The star chevron acts as a visual interpretation of this.”
Strichpunkt designed, developed and open sourced an entirely new interface to be used across all Audi digital platforms from inside your cars to the application on your mobile. The identity includes a refreshed and flat logo, a new typeface, specific color palette and an icon library.
"The visual appearance is no longer a static structure: it’s a living interface that interacts with human beings", Audi explains.
Calvin Klein secrecy released its new logo on Instagram in February describing it as “a return to the spirit of the original”.
Acting as “an acknowledgement of the founder and foundations of the fashion”, the new logo follows a recent trend to return to company roots in a simplistic manifestation with just a new font.
The new logo, is full caps, appears to be an easier design to transform across many digital and social platforms, and it doesn’t differ from the previous logo.
