Yahoo Logo changes font and color to Purple | Search Engines

Yahoo Logo Changes

There was a change made a month back by Google where they changed the favicon from the upper case to Lower case letter “g” and this had made huge controversy already.

And now its time for Yahoo to show some change in their dress-up and so, the logo is changed into purple color from the standard red color.
As reported in Techcrunch, i thought it might be better to check it myself, and i think its still not changed all over.
I could still take a glimpse of it and the font is changed a bit and he color changed to purple, looks pretty cool and attractive!

Here is the old logo that Yahoo! is using since years –

And here is the new Yahoo! logo –

Which one do you feel is better?


  1. Phil Benwell :

    The red one reminds me too much of the 90’s. I like the new one, a change but not a big one. Nice one Yahoo!

  7. I still like the old one. The red color is like a part of their brand, why do they need to change it in the first place. Also, Google’s new favicon looks highly unprofessional.

  10. UniqueMusic :

    I don’t like this change! For google, too!

  11. I like the purple one better. It’s bolder and more dramatic.

  12. i liked the earlier one, the red color yahoo logo was much better and has become a trademark.
    even the google logo change to the small g dosent look good.

  13. I like the red colour :)

  14. Red is better.

  15. Hey You know what

    Check out

    Even they changed their logo today

    but i dont know if its for today or for long

  16. ThreeYearsLate :

    I like the old one. I’m old school, and I don’t like logo changes. The brand is the brand, Apple’s should always be the apple silhouette with a bite taken out of it, IBM’s should always be the three striped letters, and Coca-Cola should always be that old-style script. Plus, red is a classic primary color, and purple is some goofy color more appropriate for candy.

  17. I dont like it.

  18. Did not even notice the change.
