Did they learn anything from TNW Logo?
My thought exactly: they have nice gradients for a full color, but what happens for the flat one color implementation?
I'd imagine the effect could be done with some white strokes.
So it seems this is not a new logo, the "old one" still the "main" logo. This will be used for the app icon and social media. Really confusing.
Man their branding team was on such a role too. This is really confusing. Why not make an icon/mark that matches the main logo?
I agree. Either you match the logotype or you go on a completely different direction, like new uber app icons.
I'm curious how folks are finding this confusing? I'm not aware of too many other conflicting brands, visually, especially with such a large market breadth as Netflix. I don't love it visually, but I think it's fine from a brand perspective. Adds some visual polish to the mark and is possible their first step in a new branding direction overall.
Judging from their statement, I think they're doing a progressive rebrand. Meaning that they're going to roll out these branding changes over time. If that's the case, it would make sense to me. Just like when you make large UI changes, you want to ease users into them and give them time to adjust. Perhaps the Netflix team are applying the same logic here.
I think my very first illustrator tutorial I did was to make something like this.
No - the first illustrator tutorial explains how to make the basic shapes of LITERALLY every flat logo in the world! :]
I don't mind logo-bashing, but please, keep the techniques out of it unless they're not flawless! (that's a pretty decent gradient!)
Less controversial than the Instagram logo, apparently.
Its.... B E A U T I F U L.
I wish I worked on Netflix stuff as a contractor. The change shit up so frequently I'd be loaded.
@nikhilwad Not a new logo! The N is an icon and a new creative element to live with our logo. The current Netflix logo is here to stay :)
That is one tall
