Images (opinion after)
The old logo was super dry and completely forgettable (and now that a new brand name is replacing it it will literally be forgotten). The new ticketing system and train brand names are unified by the same icon — an abstract, blobby set of circles that illustrate the geographical connection between the Mälardal region and Stockholm — and a custom typeface. The icon is cool on its own and it has a nice fluid silhouette that could make you think of a smooth journey while the hard-angled sans serif looks slightly tech-ish (highlighting the app-driven approach for the ticketing) and also industrious (making it look like it will work as advertised). The color palette feels fresh and contemporary and all the applications have a cool Swedishness to them that’s quite appealing.
