Opinion
The old logo was weird with a sun coming out from behind a red… thing. To me it has always looked like a roly poly bug instead of a sun. The colors were also pretty unappealing. The new logo now looks more clearly like a sun, although it has some kind of reverse eclipse thing going. The gradient-y sun could have actually been cool if it had been paired with a more lively wordmark instead of the horribly corporate, personality-lacking Helvetica. It looks so, so sad. The concept stores don’t get that much more exciting. Overall, a change was needed for sure, but this got stuck halfway where it needed to go.
