Spotify Changes the Shade of Its Official Logo, Fans Go Crazy
You may have noticed a subtle tweak on your phone’s Spotify app – there’s been a slight color change.
Rest assured, Spotify fans, your phone is not spazzing out – the company has in fact changed the shade of its official logo.
Check out the difference for yourselves:
For the company, this change is a minor, but positive part of a larger upgrade to a more appealing color palette.
However, many users don’t see the appeal.
Following the update, fans of the old logo flooded Twitter, expressing disapproval or at least confusion over this new shade.
In response to the outrage, the Spotify design team followed up with a message explaining the decision:
Some of you might have noticed a slightly new green in the Spotify app since the last update. We’re excited to finally see this rolling out as part of our bigger brand refresh we introduced earlier this year at SXSW.
As much as we got used to the old “broccoli” green we felt that the dreary brand palette was desperate for an upgrade. It was time to give it a little refresh and make sure it goes well with our vibrant new color palette.
The new green has a little more “pop” and just feels right at home in our new color palette which has grown to nearly three dozen colors. It not only looks more fresh & modern but also feels more easy on the eye, especially when applying it fullscreen.
We can’t wait to show you more of what we have been working on. And of course, we all appreciate your feedback and always love to hear your opinion.
So apparently neon green looks more hip than the old-school “broccoli” green.
What do you think about the new logo color?
