Mastercard has changed its famous logo for the first time in decades giving the iconic overlapping red and yellow circles a more modern feel to better align itself with the evolution of the payment ecosystem.

The revamped logo has dropped the CamelCase and now reads ‘Mastercard’ and even ‘mastercard’ in some of the branding. The red and yellow overlapping circles remain, however they no longer have a chunky 90’s feel and have instead adopted a slimmer, more streamlined look.

Having issued over 2.3 billion credit cards around the world Mastercard can lay claim to having one of the most widely distributed and recognizable symbols in modern times, however the financial payments ecosystem has changed drastically in recent years with the emergence of mobile. While Mastercard have evolved with those times by introducing digital products and creating new technology for credit card payment systems, it’s logo has remained unchanged since 1996.
