Just before Red Hat Summit 2019, the company has unveiled its new image. We are talking about their logo, one that had not received any changes in almost 20 years. The company, now owned by IBM, has decided to do with its logo the same thing that all companies are doing, both in the image of the operating systems, as well as in themes, icons and others, that is, simplify it. What used to show the red hat, a head and two different types of letters, is now more uniform.
This has been announced in a entry in your blog, where they explain to us that it all started at the beginning of 2017. The previous logo faced several problems: it did not render very well in digital formats, especially in small ones, and it needed to be renewed. In addition, the image of the man with the dark background and whose face is not well seen did not inspire much confidence. The team did not like this idea, but they finally decided that creating a new logo would be the best solution.
New Red Hat logo inspires more confidence
Red Hat has been in the Linux world for a long time and many of us knew its logo just by looking at it, but the problem is not in the people who already knew him, but in those who have never seen him. And they are not without reason. If we look at the previous logo and try to imagine that it is the first time we see it, the impression we get is that it is more of something of hacking than of a software created for the general public.
For all this, the company decided to change the logo, a change that is the first in almost 20 years. You have the result heading this post. In my opinion, I think it looks much better for today, but I am someone who does not like changes and it will take me getting used to. In any case, I think time will prove the new logo right. What do you think?
