Not much to go on with this one, but given that it's a product that I use every single day, it warrants a mention. I don't think I had ever paid attention to the logo in part because Ziploc is the Kleenex of facial tissues or the Google of search engines: you kind of forget it's an actual brand name and not a product category. The old logo was fine, now that I look at it, with its triangle shape sort of hinting at the closing gesture of the bags. The type looks like almost anything you find on the shelves of a grocery store and so does the new one, except that it's now served in a more bubbly, friendlier wordmark. I actually like the "Zi" detail but it goes downhill from there with a really unfortunate "p" and an okay "loc". Where the old one felt like the logo of a cleaning product, the new one feels like the logo of toilet paper. Somewhere in between, maybe years down the line, lies a wordmark that fits ziplocs… excuse me, resealable plastic bags.
