Red Rooster Rebrand

Did you notice there's something a bit more modern and minimal about the Red Rooster branding?


Here's the previous logo:



If you're as old as me you might even remember a logo before this with a combo of red and blue, featured in this TVC from yesteryear.


Red, red, reddy, red...


And now for the updated logo:




Less chicken-y, but still represents chicken with what looks like (to me) as two chickens in profile facing each other. Someone else I spoke to said the chicken was facing front on and the holes in the "R"s were it's eyes.


However you look at it, I think it's still chicken-esque, and given that they have a well-known brand this is a safe move.


But this could have been confusing if they were new to market. You'd think having rooster in the brand name would be a good indication this company sold chicken, but a quick Google lead me to other businesses, like a graphic design company (that presumably don't sell chicken) and a Little Red Rooster PR firm (no chicken sold here)


But back to the cluckin' point.


This new logo and branding is a much more modern approach to a pretty old (by Aussie standards) food franchise. And to be honest I don't think too many people even noticed, but I think it's cleaner and bolder and I like it.


You can hear what they published about their re-brand and menu overhaul here but it's pretty light on details.
