Hey, how is September working out for you? It’s been amazing to me so far. This week we were mostly discussing about the concept on Redesigning and Rebranding. We saw Accenture redesign and had some minor rebranding too and we were wondering why.
Youtube also seemed to redesign everything with the tagline “A new YouTube look that works for you” and they modified their logo after 12 Years!
And Skype’s much-debated redesign also came to desktop which also interested us.
On the other hand, how does one go on to do a rebranding? This guy tells that “Your logo is copied” where he tells that everything has probably been done before.
And this article also interested us where they tell about Atlassian’s Hiring Process for Building UX Teams at Scale which we think would be a great start to go on that redesign tide.
What else is happening? Let’s start with seeing what happened in -
