Images (opinion after)
The previous logo had some interesting aspects to it — the heavy flared Terminator-esque wordmark and abstract "S" monogram — but ultimately it wasn't very pleasant or friendly. The new logo aims to be extremely pleasant and friendly by adopting a heart icon with an implied "S" and an extra-friendly Bree bold oblique wordmark. The icon reminds me a little of Safeway, except this is more awkward. The heart-"S" combo is a good start but the execution feels a bit weak and unfinished. The wordmark is quite forgettable — managing to make Bree look more like Myriad bold italic. Nonetheless, the change certainly softens the image of the grocery store.
