Verizon – Recently Verizon too redesigned its logo in a bid to strengthen its marketing campaign and brand development efforts. But the company’s efforts to redesign its logo didn’t go so well with the target audience. The old logo had a big check mark as a dominating visual which impressed viewers. Conversely, the new logo is flat, simple, and the new placement of the “Verizon v” likens itself to a checkmark.
