Yahoo! Logo Design – Blueprint
I used Yahoo! a lot before 2007 for their Yahoo Messenger service and email, and I’m still following their Yahoo twitter account. They just revealed the new Yahoo logo. I’m not a logo designer, but as a user, the new logo doesn’t impress me. I would expect something better from a company like Yahoo!. It’s always been interesting for me to see behind-the-scene of any design. See the logo blueprint that Marissa put on her blog post.
We didn’t want to have any straight lines in the logo. Straight lines don’t exist in the human form and are extremely rare in nature, so the human touch in the logo is that all the lines and forms all have at least a slight curve. -Marrisa Mayer
Found a website that transforms any text so that it resembles the new Yahoo logo. I gave it a try with my first name. After I pressed I’m done, it showed That’ll be $500 🙂
