The Week in a Tweet: Uber’s Rebrand, Scroll-free September and the Channel 4 Bid

For this week’s industry news round up, we’re talking Uber’s rebrand, All In. Leeds, Design Manchester and Scroll Free September – enjoy!

Uber’s rebrand

This week Uber have unveiled a brand new look, including a new logo, custom typeface and redesigned mobile app. They said that the new visual identity reflects their move from a San Fransisco start up to a global enterprise. Apparently, many people didn’t associate the old symbol with the brand so they decided there was no point investing more money into it – fair enough! (Source: Ad Week)
