There are a few logotypes, which can be recognised by everyone and one of such is logo of MasterCard.
Seeing red and yellow circles, which are overlapped, each of us understands what mark is presented. MasterCard was founded in 1966 and in 1968 one of the most recognisable symbols was showed to the audience. In 1990 the logo was distinctly redesigned and it’s popularity grew up and is on the top till now.
Redesign was created by Michael Bierut and Luke Hayman, which thought that there is no matter in changing circles and colours, because it’s a distinctive feature of corporation, so they just upgraded it.
Rebranding which was made had the aim not to change something, but to make it more modern and fittable. The last changes in MasterCard logo were done in 2016, they were sustained in the style of minimalism and simplicity.
