Opinion

I've seen the old logo often but never paid enough attention to figure out what it was for; I thought it was for a caribbean cruise company or something, not office furniture. Because of the crown I also thought it would be pronounced like regal but it's more like the name Reggie. In other words, not an easy name despite its shortness. And not an attractive old logo with that horribly extended "g". The typography in the new logo is much improved in its sans serif incarnation, looking more office-like. The crown — if, indeed, it was a crown — is now indiscernible as a crown and looks more like a weird accent that only Scandinavian people might be able to pronounce. Graphically it's an improvement but in terms of meaning or relevance it's gotten more confusing.

Thanks to Erich P. Grubert for the tip.
