Yesterday, Uber revealed a new logo that has garnered strong reactions from the Internet.

The Dailydot called it ugly, DailyMail referred to it as bizarre and don’t get me started on the number of people on Twitter hating on it. I mean, one user said it looked like dark sperm ??

According to the CEO, the old logo was looking distant and cold hence the change. Also, they wanted to overhaul it using different colours that are peculiar to each country. What this means is that the color will change depending on where you are in the world and whether you are a driver or a rider.


 
“In Mexico, we were inspired by Mexican pink and the patterns in the local tiles; in Ireland, from the Georgian architecture and the lush greens; and in Nigeria, from the Ankara, which came up again and again because of its bright colors and beautiful geometric patterns” Kalanick explained

We all know that after a week, everyone will come to accept the new look, but presently which side are you on, do you share the Internet’s opinions?

    See white people? After praising and practically worshiping Uber, they just clamp down on them like they hate the success Uber has garnered. The logo is great and it shows Uber’s sophistication and local relevance in all the countries where Uber operates. I totally love it!

  6. They are both ugly but I’ll go with the first one – at least I can understand how it correlates with uber.
