Recently, Toyota has redesigned its logo with a revised visual identity, created by The & Partnership for Toyota’s Europe division. They opting for a flat design includes removing its wordmark.
In fact, Toyota joins other major car brands that have abandoned 3D logos and returned to a 2D, flat design, in the last time.
However, this is not a trend, but rather a need for simplification, according to The & Partnership art chief Dan Beckett, in an interview at Deezen.com
The & Partnership agency has personalized typography, called Toyota type, for both formats: digital and physical, with a monochrome color palette and a red accent.
With the advent of many devices, the new digital age has changed the perspective of design with a much more simplified, minimalist one.
