The bold new look incorporates a blue that is both eye-catching and pleasing, while the letters convey the strength and dependability of a true, world-class leader. The tilt of the G signals acceleration and agility, while its virtual absence reinforces transparency and the company's unique insights. Agility, insight and dependability, these are all qualities valued by Ingram Micro's partners.

It's been a while since we've had a good, old-fashioned ugly corporate logo redesign. Here we have Fortune 500 company number 69 acting like a mom and pop electronics store selling IBM Selectrics. Seriously, this logo can not be the representation of any company that's a leader at something. The typography is abysmal, the tilted "G" is a trite attempt at creativity and the "MICRO" part they took quite literally by making it micro. To make matters worse, the press release rationalization is as laughable as it gets.
