No fanfare or information on this one but given that every other movie is out in 3D now and RealD seems to be the most recognizable player in this cash-generating trend, the logo on its own makes for a good topic. When I got the tip and went to the RealD website I had no idea who they were or what they did but when I Googled their logo and saw the old one I instantly recognized it. That doesn't mean it's the best logo — far from it! — but it's kind of ubiquitous in the movie-going experience nowadays. The unicase approach was as bad as it gets with the "L" oddly uppercased. Swooshes have never pleased anyone here either. The new logo is future-y but not too overwrought. It's well considered and consistent in using the notch across all letters (save for the "L"). The "A" is perhaps too Adobe-like but since it's not the main focus I wouldn't make too much of a big deal about it. Overall, decent enough.
