German CAD vendor Nemetschek has changed its logo from the stylized N
(which I rather liked, kind of reminded me of the logo for the old Burlington Northn railway):
...to the horizontal skyscraper logo:
The purpose of the logo is to emphasize the company's emphasis on AEC (architecture, engineering, construction.) Or, in the words of the press release:
The core of the new brand is the slogan “moving minds”, together with the use of a horizon as the key visual and a logo that reflects the group’s diversity. ... Use of a horizon as the key visual symbolizes the opening of new possibilities and makes room for unrestricted design freedom.
Every time a company comes out with a new logo, it seems the design has to be justified with flowery, inscrutable language. I'd like to see a company announce, "New logo. We like it. Get used to it" -- just for once.
