Ug. I used to work on this account. Nightmare city. No matter what their logo is, their advertising will always be determined by men in white coats brandishing loops to find something wrong with, say, Nadav’s photography.

Of the last few rebrands, this one at least is digestable. I won’t say I like it, but I won’t scoff.

See I never liked the old logo/packaging/ads/branding – so the fact that I don’t like this one either doesn’t surprise me. I just assume Fujifilm has no taste in design.

I don’t get what it’s supposed to be/represent/give the feeling of. It looks to me like the “f” hit the “i” with an exacto knife and drew blood causing the top if the “i” to turn red. Yup…sad…that’s what I got from it.

But I do like the new type. The “j”, “l” & “m” are much more graceful, light and consistent.

And why did they ditch the 1934 logo? That type is sweet and I love how different from nearly all their competitors [who all love harsh angles, black & red and the “technology bland” look.] it is.

They should go back to that.

It’s not that pretty, but it’s instantly recognizable as Fujifilm, and it’s cleaner than before. *thumb up*

Well it’s better than Sprite. i don’t mind it as much. The type is a bit tall and skinny. The nice part is that the ditched the red part of the logo. Looks nicer with out it… but that’s only my 2 cents. I do like the old blocky font better.

Oh it´s much better! Really nice, clean, only 2 colors, now glows, now radiation,…nice and clean. Great, on ecan still “see the old logo”. Good Job.

And yes, it´s much better than that ugly sprite design!

I’ll tell you…it feels better to me. Warmer, more approachable. I like it.

Gaining impact without losing brand equity. That’s not easy to pull off. I’d say it’s a step forward.

uf…like some of u said…this is the…”best” from the 3 ones of this week…!

mmm….i think that…there’s something in the character’s space that is not right..i mean…mmm…this…”triangle” form the 2nd F and the space in the 2-color-“i” …they look closer (obviously) than the others but..it’s ok…really cold, but…legible..!

I don’t know why, but that just strikes me as a much better fit for Formula 1 advertising – their old logo didn’t quite meld with the rest of the F1 big boys in terms of style – this does.

Really what happened with sprite? Very ugly work for a big company. I think Fuji should use that new logo before, their brand doesn’t attract me and won’t. Does anyone know will they still use green color in brand?

I can’t believe they’re still using the word “film”, sounds so old fashioned.

Yeah this one cleans it up, gets rid of the old 70’s Fuji mark and makes it simple enough to work nicely. Not outstanding but it’s still a nice change.

Visually all I can focus on is the white space between the I and F which isn’t a good thing. I think they missed an opportunity to keep the shape of the red square on the old logo (of which I have never been all that fond). Hmm. Don’t think I care for it much.

I think it’s quite a nice logo. But the old one’s still gets my vote. it’s a unique design and has a strong japanese feel into it. Don’t know why, but it does.

It’s an improvement, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why they’d retain the word “film” as part of their identity. That makes about as much sense as a company like Blockbuster calling themselves “BlockbusterVHS”
