New identity for Mailchimp (by Collins) recently introduced. It’s keeping its logo-cum-mascot Freddie the Chimp (slightly modified), for starters, and using an analog typeface from the 1920s as its new typeface, and illustrating its new brand with a series of almost childlike drawings that look unpolished and rough by design. Mailchimp worked with both internal illustrators and artists from around the world to create drawings with a sense of perspective that’s slightly off-kilter–one that makes them appear like they were drawn by either a famed contemporary artist or a kindergartner. The new identity is both intriguing and polished. Not your typical tech approach to a maturing tech brand. Will be interesting to see how the larger corporate clients and prospects take to the new effort. We say, keep your quirky on, be yourself, Mailchimp.

New logo for Slack (by Pentagram partner, Micheal Bierut) recently introduced. First rebrand since start-up. Cleaner, more distinctive, more consistent in wide range of applications (old brand identity was all over the shop!). And just before an IPO. “We’re more than group chat. We’re the future of group work.” A lot of opinions flying around out there, but from our POV, solid strategic thinking and execution for a bigger brand proposition. Forward you go, Slack.
