Verizon wireless is a well known cell phone (mobile 😀 ) company in the States. Although I never personally used their services they are a very popular company. They recently decided that it was time for a redesign and although I totally agree with the thought, what they did is not the best. See the logo’s below.
The check is still there, it’s still a sans serif font, still black and iconic red. But really?! it’s clean which I like, but it’s pretty boring… Yeah just don’t like it. BUT it didn’t stop there… They designed this website.
Yes I did just draw comments on it. I mean as a site it works, but I don’t understand the icons…
LIKE THE GSA REDESIGN THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. BUT I LIKE THE WORK I’VE DONE 😀
I decided to have a go in trying to redesign it. Starting with sketches of course and then creating it again in illustrator.
I tried to keep the logo consistent with the original design. Keeping the red and the check mark in a way, playing with fonts. I ended up being happiest with this one:
I feel as though it makes more sense then the floating check mark and it’s more modern than the old version. I still want to work more on this, so I will try to come back to it.
