Ed.’s Notes: If one must use a neutered sprite in a logo this is as good as it gets. It’s really not that bad; could have done without the gradient. The wordmark is questionable. Bigger view of the logo and a couple of applications below (or after the jump).
Select quote: “Commenting on the new identity of the group, Jean-Marc Janaillac said: ‘Transdev and Veolia Transport are two known brands, recognized and appreciated by our clients for more than twenty years, which is why we chose the name of one and the color of the other.’ The Transdev name is preserved and given a new identity. Red, an open and visible color, synonymous with passion, empowers the logo while anchoring the history of the group.”
