  1. Very cool! Love how some of them were so subtle, and yet others are very different. I saw the old Apple logo a few days ago, and did a double take on it. I guess it’s been awhile since it’s changed!

  2. i THINK im in a state of FIFA FIFA FIFA FIFA

    GET AWAY GET AWAY

    starbucks aint a logo its a SAYING

    like yano ‘hey guys im so starbucks this evening’

    perp

  3. Coca-Cola don’t change his logo since this was created.

    Old Logos was much better than news in:
    – Sprite
    – Piramid (the new logo is bad bad bad)

  4. Almost all of them are probably gonna get remade again in a few years. I personally prefer the old Citroen one, such a shame they changed that. The Sprite logo is ridiculous, looks like it has some kind of a cheap ps warp on it…

  5. Quite surprised you’ve got Bank of New Zealand in there. Glad to see people keep an eye out on what’s coming out from Aotearoa!

  6. When will they help Sherwin Williams?! Grotesque logo of the earth being smothered in paint with the slogan “Cover the Earth”…

  7. Nice post. Very interesting to see how a company can change its logo a lil bit and make such a difference.

  8. Agreed, the new Sprite logo is lame.

    I love those globes in AT&T, BT and Dubai.

    On behalf of my country New Zealand, thank you for taking an interest in our only banks new logo.

  9. The new Sprite logo is kind of a downgrade. BP’s new logo has been around for a while, and I think it’s definitely a big improvement on the old one. Thanks for the great examples!

  10. Most of the logos look better now that they have been updated but I prefer the old logos for Pyramid Breweries and Compaq.

    Another company that has recently changed its logo is Woolworths Supermarkets in Australia. Dramatic improvement 🙂

  11. It’s interesting to see how companies change their branding over time. Some have definitely got better over time.

    My favourites are Apple and Dubai International Airport logos

  12. Capitol One has shown yet another example of the poor decision making of the banking industry. A swoosh? – Reeeeallly?!

  13. The Starbuck’s logo changed years ago…why is everyone acting like it’s no longer the green logo? That’s the current one. They went through a temporary re-branding a couple years ago where they brought back their original logo (on the left), in a back-to-the-basics marketing campaign to make a push on their plain coffee.

    Clueless, all of you.

  14. To all of the people commenting on the starbucks logo, they did NOT get a new logo, the one on the left is the old logo.
    The nudity was there before Starbucks was as mainstream.

  15. Great Example. Never seen that new Best Buy logo yet.
    I checked both the US and Canada’s Best buy website. They don’t seem to have the new version.

  16. I like the apple and afc champion leagues logo. moving from a flat surfaced logo to something solid …. pretty cool

  17. Are some of these backwards? Like the Starbucks one, appears like the old one is on the right and new one is on the left.

  18. I love seeing these kinds of lists.

    The Starbucks logo, however, should be switched around. The naked mermaid is the original, and the green is the new one. They just brought back the old b/w version for a 25th anniversary campaign they did.

    Thanks much!

  19. Nice list – interesting that Starbucks has chosen to include nudity in their logo…

    I think the best transformations are Apple, Best Buy and Dubai.

  20. I love the progression through trends over time. You can see how different logos are revised to fit the current trends and how others are pushing into new styles that will lead the trends of the design community! cool.

    @nickwichman

  21. Great examples. It’s funny how a trend of more solid, simpler logos is visible ina a whole array of different areas

  22. The Starbucks logo shown on the right is a special “nostalgia” logo that they brought back to coincide with the release of their Pike Place Blend coffee; it was also used briefly to commemorate their 35th anniversary in 2006. It will have limited use and does not replace their current green logo.

  23. Actually, the Starbucks logo on the right is there original version and used to be only be available at their original store in Seattle. It was refined, covering up the mermaid’s chest, as they began their national expansion.

    They have begun using it on products all over recently.

  24. Very interesting how they develop. I did not realise starbucks got a new logo.. been there twice in the last week and I am sure it is still green!!

    1. the first one was the first, original logo they had.

      it’s undergone many changes to be the logo we see today.
