Logos are a vital part of everyday activity here at Cubic Promote, whether we're branding them on promotional products or helping to design them so that a client's message stands out, our team knows the power of a good logo. So it shouldn't come as a shock that our office was abuzz when we learned about Burger King's revitalisation of its corporate branding. Is a logo refresh that exciting? This time, we think so!
Logo Identity for Packaging and Uniforms
It might come as a shock to learn that Burger King, the US fast-food chain known for its takeaway meals, hasn't rebranded for over 20 years. For many big-name brands a logo refresh is common every 5-ish years, so for Burger King to hold out for 20 before making a change is pretty powerful. However, we think this rebrand is the perfect change for a new decade as the new logo simplifies existing concepts in a slightly retro way. The resulting design and packaging stand out as simple, communicative, and fresh while still feeling authentically Burger King.
Design Changes and A Fresh Approach
So what makes this rebrand so exciting? Burger King has taken not just its logo but its product packaging, crew t-shirts and social media marketing to a simple, classy place. They've refined their colour palette to include green, red, brown, orange, and cream (reflective of the colours found in a fresh burger). They've also got a very 70s-looking font now that is both simple and playful, perfect for a casual dining restaurant. Their more structured, formal uniforms have been pushed out in favour of logo printed t-shirts and sporty, casual polos with the Burger King logo embroidered on them. The result is a comprehensive overhaul of the Burger King brand that beautifully blends modern dining with a retro atmosphere. This is definitely a rebrand that's set the bar high for other companies in 2021!
