3 Brand Revamps Everyone Is Talking About

1. Dunkin Donuts dropping the “Donuts” from their name

The company said in a statement: “While we remain the No. 1 retailer of donuts in the country, as part of our efforts to reinforce that Dunkin’ Donuts is a beverage-led brand and coffee leader, we will be testing signage in a few locations that refer to the brand simply as Dunkin’.” Dunkin’ wants to put themselves in the same arena as coffee industry giant Starbucks.

2. Weight Watchers is now going as just “WW”

Weight Watchers is changing to WW to focus on more than just weight loss. They are hoping to spread to all areas of wellness.

What do you think about the new logo?

“We’re excited to unveil a new, simplified logo for the Uber app that brings back the U, is easily recognizable, and is scalable across the 660 plus cities we serve,” a spokesperson for Uber said in a statement.

Okay, so this is a great idea for content but I need you to actually comment on the changes. Give your opinion? Are these good changed? Bad changes? What has public perception been like?
