Relevant quote
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.

Opinion

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.

Thanks to Duston Nixon for the tip.
