New logo: Nord

Nord is the Nothernmost department in France, bordering Belgium. Recently, the general council of Nord started using a new logo, a simple gray block with the words "Nord - le département".

The previous logo was an 'N' symbol that was used with various bright colours. Although the 'N' was distinctive, the typography used for the wordmark wasn't that great, the last 'l' in général was particularly atrocious.

I haven't been able to find any press on this new logo, and hence to definite launch date. But it was most likely introduced this year.

    1. Well, no. I have an article prepared about LRT that I'll publish in about an hour.
