Logo round-up: August 2020

There were a fair amount interesting logo changes in August, including the capital of Germany, Dave & Buster's, the largest public TV station in the U.S. and Belgium's public broadcaster.

Another change in August was Disney renaming their television studios remove their associating with Fox. This included resurrecting the name "Touchstone Television" for the Fox 21 studio. A few weeks ago, Disney announced that Touchstone Television (formerly Fox 21) was to shut down, probably making this the first time the logo round-up includes a logo that has already been retired!

This will be the last round-up published this year, the plan is to return with the September edition in January.

Logo round-up: July 2020

Australia revealed it's new country brand back in July, which is always a source of controversy. Other big stories were the Royal Academy of Music and the new look for TV production company Banijay following its mega-merger with EndemolShine.

Logo round-up: June 2020

The most discussed logo back in June was the new pinwheel symbol for Google Photos, even though it's just part of an ongoing rollout of Google's design scheme. We also got new designs for two prominent two-letter acronyms: IG and NI.

Logo round-up: May 2020

The May logo round-up is ready, so here it is. May 2020 was decidedly less busy than May 2019, but there were still a few notable changes, such as the simplified Dolby logo, the return of Ampol in Australia and the overall refresh of the Adobe Creative Cloud icons.

Logo round-up: April 2020

We're on a six month delay, but the April logo round-up is finally here! It'll be a while before we catch up.

Much of the world was in full lockdown during April, so economic activity came as close to a halt as is possible.

Logo round-up: March 2020

March 2020 was when much of the world introduced national lockdowns and stay-at-home orders. This gradually halted all sorts of economic activity, including rebrands.

The last couple of months have been tumultuous for many people around the world. For me, one small change was that the various moments used to update the next logo round-up dried up, which means we have a bit of a backlog that I hope will be remedied later this summer.

Logo round-up: February 2020

February was the last month before the virus hit the west, with rebrands happening as usual. Some of the more notable ones were the new Google Maps pin, Sonic restaurants, The New Republic and Sears.
