Aldi unveiled a bright new identity

Unlike the Co-op opting for a retro rebrand with the revival of its 1968 logo last year, German supermarket Aldi says it wanted to create a more “contemporary” image with its new branding.

A shorter, bolder, sans-serif logotype has been incorporated, alongside a new “A” icon, giving the logo a more three-dimensional effect overall.

The rebrand has been met with mixed reactions from the design community.
