New logo: Danish Ministry of Education

The Danish Ministry of Education, Undervisningsministeriet, has launched a new identity. The new look was launched around the beginning of March, very likely on March 1 when the ministry was reorganised.

The new logo keeps the ministry's clever symbol, a Royal crown which includes an open book. It has been redrawn for clarity. It also has new typography.

Danish media reports about the new logo have mostly centered around the fact the logo doesn't include a hyphen after "Utbildnings", which is the common Danish syllabification. The point is slightly moot as the previous logo didn't have hyphen either, and that it is quite common to exclude hyphens in logotype.

The old identity was launched around the turn of the millenium.
