When you reveal the logo you have been slaving over for days, weeks, months to the general public, someone somewhere will hate it. This is what we call an irrefutable fact. In 2017, it’s easier than ever to provide your personal opinion of others work.
I’ve already given you the play-by-play of what happens when new logos are released into the wild. As a spectator, I see those 5 stages play out on a regular basis. In recent weeks, I’ve witnessed the Twitter evisceration of the new Los Angeles Chargers logo and the new Juventus logo. Both franchises showed signs that they heard the backlash and made adjustments. Brandon Moore wrote a great piece about branding and the fear that can come with it, citing the storms these two specific brands dealt with. (I got a hardy laugh out of his “Cowards” tweet where he screenshot Juventus reverting back to its old logo on their Twitter account.)
