Logo issues? Really?

I can’t even believe I’m going to write about this, because if anyone reading my blog for more than a few posts knows, I don’t give one hoot about fashion and the desire to keep up with the Jones’. But, it seems like a good conversation piece.


Here’s the article. If you haven’t heard about it or read about it all over the internet yet, go ahead and read it. I’ll wait.

Really? Really? People are actually complaining about the change of a logo? Who cares? To go so far as to call it a “monstrosity”? This is what America is upset about? How about getting upset about the lack of education today’s kids are receiving? Or getting upset that big corporate CEO’s are padding their wallets fraudulently while most of America struggles to put food on their tables? Or, or, or… I could name a dozen things we should be more concerned about, but you get my point.

With so many companies changing logos to keep up with the times, why does America feel the need to be so hostile towards it? It’s not like you’re going to stop buying Pepsi because you don’t like the new design. I mean really. Are you going to stop shopping at Gap just because the sign on the outside of the store is a different color? It’s not like they went from the simple blue box with typewriter style letters to a green circle with orange graffiti lettering. Geesh people. Complain about something a little more important.

Okay. That’s my ramble for today.

  1. The new Gap logo is not a monstrosity - it's just boring. But if one is a die-hard fan of a casual clothing brand, and must have such a royal fit over a simple logo change (boring or not), then you seriously need to do something with your life.
