So, I dug up this little gem from our archives to refresh my memory on what I had said about it before: Which Non-Verbal Logo Doesn’t Belong?

Admittedly, I was skeptical about Starbucks’ move to extract the siren from the prior logo and the attempt to stand alone with the likes of the Swoosh, Golden Arches, and Shell, as a non-verbal logo – needing no further explanation to sell coffee and other things – but I’m happy to say (two years later) I’m fully on board now!
