    RM Rebranding

    Some of you, especially those who were at BETT, may have noticed that RM have rebranded themselves

    Question is - What do you think of their new logo?

    Personally, I prefer their original logo...

    The logo looks like something for an oil company.

    I will never understand this re-branding clap trap. Aievea or whatever to me is Norwich Union, Cif is Jif, a snickers is a Marathon and cogsignia [ again whatever ] is the post office but I think they changed it back.
    I remember when the BBC changed their logo - it tilted a few degrees, and then they changed it back again. Bleeding waste of time and money - still people fall for it I suppose........

    I'm not that keen on either logo. The old one looked incredibly dated and the new one looks far too generic with its web 2.0-style rounded font. Is the purple shape behind the text a leaf?

    The RM logo has been on the engineer t-shirts for about 6 months, thought nothing of it until the rebranded website.

    So if anyone is at HQ, have they changed the logo on the building so it doesn't read MSI when inside going to the training centre (had to see it to understand)

    I recall doing a "logo" change for my first company I worked for, can't find it now as it was back in 2002, but it involved putting it into Word, tilting the text by a few degrees and bobs your uncle, done. Was rubbish if I am honest.

    I think it is potentially better than the old one (used for a good 10-20 years?!), but it does shout 'Smint' and 'Daybreak' to me....
    Not sure that is the look they were going for - Minty poor immitation of something millions loved

    These are the worst kind IMO. I wish I could get paid millions to pick an obvious noun which relates to the company and then add a vowel or two (or sometimes an "is") onto the end.

    e.g. Arriva, Centrica, Certance, Energis, Invensys, Invesco, Logica, Publicis, Xstrata

    I wonder if people get Aveva confused with Aviva?

    I assume Ramesys is meant to sound similar to Ramesses, but I don't get the connection? What has selling software to schools got to do with Egyptian pharaohs?
