Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing officer of MasterCard, said: “Since the first use of red and yellow circles in 1968, MasterCard has been in existence for more than 50 years. According to the survey, more than 80% of users see our brand identity, even if they Without the word 'Mastercard', it can be correctly recognized. To this end, we hope to make this symbol independent and let the brand enter a new stage of development."
In 2016, MasterCard replaced the flat new LOGO. The new LOGO retains the two connected dots of red and yellow and is optimized to give it a clearer, modern and minimalist look. The font part turns the "MasterCard" of the original "Camel Spelling" into a lowercase sans serif "mastercard".
On January 7, 2019, MasterCard announced that with the continuous development of consumers and businesses, MasterCard's red and yellow interlocking brand symbols have become the best expression on behalf of MasterCard. The company decided to start in 2019. The text portion will be removed from the existing logo, leaving only the red and yellow circle graphics.
