    I agree that it takes years of legacy to make a red and yellow circle feel iconic to you. I wouldn't have messed with that either, and would have used it as its biggest asset.

    On the overall usage, however, I would be careful with how it is presented. For instance it reminds me a lot about the circles within circles trend from the mid-2000's and the billboard design looks like a James Bond intro:

    With such simplicity comes the responsibility of making it unique in all of its applications. And that's where simplicity becomes complex.
