Mastercard tried to start 2019 off with a name drop. But its new logo design has backfired, with people claiming it “looks like a butt”.
Credit card company Mastercard has been globally slammed over its new logo, which was announced overnight.
The multinational company released a statement claiming it was officially dropping the word ‘Mastercard’ from its logo, where it has sat across two interlocking red and yellow circles for the last 50 years.
The statement claimed the new naked logo would reflect the “modern simplicity” of the new consumer age.
“The Mastercard symbol represents Mastercard better than one word ever could and the flexible modern design will allow it to work seamlessly across the digital landscape,” the statement said.
Attempting to keep its announcement cute and contemporary, the company tweeted that it usually doesn’t like to “name drop” but in this case it made an exception.
Moments later, the company was bombarded by comments from unimpressed punters across the world.
