Yahoo! to announce new logo next month, to tease it everyday until then

without comments

If you still have a soft spot for goo ‘ol Yahoo! then you’re in for a surprise, the struggling search company is set to unveil a new logo next month to usher in a new era of Yahoo! The new logo will incorporate the new brand that has seen a lot of restructuring and loads of acquisitions since Marissa Mayer took over last year.

The new Yahoo logo will apparently still feature the same old purple hues and the exclamation mark at the end, but will serve as a new identity for the company that has faced a lot of competition from Google and Microsoft’s Bing. The company has shut down a lot of its services, added a bunch of new ones and notably redesigned quite a few, keeping Flickr in mind. Let’s not forget their acquisitions in the last year, including the recent Rockmelt purchase and most importantly Tumblr, all of which apparently to get new talent into the company as they try to take back the markets they were once popular in.

Yahoo will apparently show off a different version of their current logo each day on a selection of their sites and services, with the new version finally being unveiled on September 5th, when the whole world’s eyes are on Samsung and other company’s new offerings.
