(Est. 1935) “Globe is a leading telecommunications company in the Philippines. Our mission is to transform and enrich lives through communications by way of our vision of making great things possible.”
Images (opinion after)
If we assume that globe-based logos — with all the dimensionality involved therein — are harmless and an appropriate vessel for a telecommunications company, then this logo is relatively decent and a vast improvement over the old one. If we don't, then, yeah, this logo is annoying, literal, and descriptive to a fault. But if you are called Globe, not doing a globe logo would be irresponsible.
