For years the Pokémon logo has remained
the same since it’s debut in 1997. The
20 year old brand is still focused on the
demographic of children. Those children
have now grown up and this step in
redesigning the logo plays a big role in
that. The new design is to make the brand
look and feel cooler, to bring back the
once little kids who grew out of the brand.
This is to show that Pokémon is not just
for children but any age and that it’s so
much more than just cute little creatures.
This is accomplished by the starkness of the sharp edges and the tilt of the letters to show motion. Red and white play a big part in the color scheme because it relates back to the Pokéball, a major item within the games. The hints of the blue and yellow call back to the original logo design to show that they still cater to children and that demographic. Included at the bottom is also the name for Pokémon in Japanese (Poketto Monsutā), this is to show respect to the origin country of the company.
The redesigned Pokémon logo grabs the attention of those who used to play back in the day, and shows a new mature take on the company brand.
