Behind the Rebranding of Company Logos

When a company rebrands itself with a new logo, they're unveiling an entirely new image to the world.

The iconic McDonald's golden arches were not present with the company from the beginning, nor was that green goddess stamped on the side of every Starbucks cup. We associate every company with its logo, and it's more important than we might realize.
