New Ford Logo

Guys,

Just read in the Courier Mail yesterday that Ford are changing the Blue oval Ford logo to take them into the next 100 years of Ford. Unlike other manufacturers Ford has kept the same logo nearly a centry and is probably one of the most recognisable.

I hope I did read the article wrong and this isn't true. Does any one else have any info on this.

Dave

Not sure how that article was phrased, but it's not as bad as you think.

When Jac Nasser was head honco, he decided the Blue Oval was a logo only worthy of Ford-badged cars. Thus, the corporate logo became the script 'Ford Motor Company' logo. Ford have now decided to return the Blue Oval has the corporate logo to coincide with the 100 year anniversary, with a slight update to it's shading, but it'll still be the same script 'Ford' inside a Blue Oval.

heres the new logo, the real story was ford HQ changed the logo on their building and alot others around the world to the Ford Motor Company (or FoMoCo). Now they have redesigned it i.e. added a bit of fade effect and will be badging all their buildings with the true Ford logo.
