GM's new logo

Recommended Posts

That's laughably bad. This is a cringey attempt to look hip in the social media age.

That is ugly.  Good for GM!

 

How about Burger King logo change?  Another WTF.

I don't mind that actually. Reminds me of their old one I remember as a kid from the 90s.

 

Btw your pictures in your last post didn't work either. Not sure if it's a problem on my end at this point or what’s going on

Thank you fuzzymoomoo sir for the feedback, here are the GM logos attached directly to this post. From top to bottom, 1938, 1964, 2001, and 2010.

Lower case lettering is seen as less imposing and emasculating in appearance. Walmart used to have an imposing logo in all capital letters, then they changed to a capital "W" and lower case for the rest of the name as it was seen as more inviting...even the star was replaced by a vector flower...

I dig the Burger King logo, it looks retro.  The GM logo looks like an icon for a social media app.  Not a fan.

All they need to do now is bring back the classic fries and chicken tenders.

I still have fond memories of those as a kid.

The new logo is terrible.  It’s a poor attempt at being hip.   They should stick with the last one.

I actually like that. Their new 70's throwback branding is kind of neat.

Autoextremist spoke about the new GM logo for this week's "On the Table" column. http://www.autoextremist.com/on-the-table1/

 

Editor-In-Chief's Note: Much of the Internet instantly derided GM's new logo, but that ire was misguided. This isn't the same company of even three years ago; and GM is accelerating its transformation at such a furious pace to the point that the company will be unrecognizable by 2025. The company's "best and brightest" designers, engineers, product development and marketing people are building an all-new company that will be one of the world's leaders in EV technology as well as in the mass production of a wide range of EVs. Dismissing this huge effort because you find fault with the logo? Get over it. I'm betting that GM proves the haters dead wrong on this. -PMD

Yep - the kid who designed the new GM mark clearly studied Paul Rand's work (inc the proposed Ford logo update above) 

I think this is a fairly successful design, even if more of a departure from the former than people were expecting. I don't know how well it will age, especially the casing of the letters, but this isn't terrible.

Unpopular opinion. I honestly don’t mind it. Seeing it next to the old one shows how cold and industrial it used to be. Not a bad move for a different era.

This is just a dumb name, regardless of the case.
