We're looking to get a feel for what you think about our logo. We've got this outfit for a while now and wanted to see what you think of it. Please be super open and honest, as I want to look better than an Instagram post 😜

I like the logo the multi coloured equalizer looks cool 🙂
The equalizer looks great. This may be may own taste only however i think if it had more '3D-like' design instead of only 2D it would like more modern.

Not completely 3D but enough it to give it some background. Not sure if I'm explaining good enough however let me know and I can try describing better

Hi @Toujkou6936 thanks for your comment and I think I see what you mean regarding the 3D effect, that would give our logo a little more depth and make it stand out more 😉.
I like it, honestly do. But what drives me beyond insane is that with the new update on the desktop app, only available via the windows store, I can't change the icon anymore. I had it nice in white, in line with all my icons and this multi-coloured version - lovely as it is - is sending me into a panic attack (I wish I was joking). Honestly - just for this alone I fear I am cancelling my subscription unless there's a fix (soon, very soon).

Hi there @lieven

Thank you for the input. That's exactly why we need your feedback. We'll pass this on 😉
Funny, each time I see the Deezer logo I think to myself 'They must be working on changing that", and then I find this thread!

I think it's dated. The condensed typeface and the icon have a mid 2000s web look to them. Something about the allcaps and the thin lines dividing 'blocks' in each bar look clunky, too technical. I wouldn't dare try anything 3D or with any kind of depth. If a logo doesn't work flat, it doesn't work.

I think the colour scheme looks great on a black background, but on a white background it's too bright, some of the logo gets lost (especially toward the top, and in the yellow).

I like the equalizer as a symbol, and it's nice to have a logo with multiple colours.

I don't think a new logo for any company has ever been well received. No matter what you do, people will complain. So I wish you the best of luck, and personally look forward to it!

I guess I'm indifferent to the logo - I've been a subscriber long enough that I'm used to it. Could it be updated, sure. Does it need to be, no. From a visual perspective I personally would rather Deezer spent development resources on things that their customers have been requesting for years, like a dark mode.
E I think it could improve. Especially for Android could bring something more with the Material Designer in addition to the Dark Mode. I see the Tim Music logo and not Deezer. Can fix this

Hi there, ours devs are working on the dark mode and hopefully it will be released soon! About the TIM logo, you account is TIM Music and there is no way to change its logo, I'm sorry!
Thanks for the feedback, we will keep passing them on to the right team!

I think it looks like something from the early 2000s I think if you get rid of the equalizer and just have the name it would be better.

It's not about what it was before, but what can make it better in the future! 😃

Like I've said, we've got this outfit for quite a while now... 🤓

surely you understand about brand identity. The logo as it is now is your identity, there is no need to change it because it is now what identifies you.

look at the time and money wasted by brands like Pepsi etc, who spend millions on logo changes and for no reason. it won't improve your subscription sales by changing it.

What does change sales is a good product with great support. Maybe focus on those aspects of your business rather than the logo which is fine by the way.

it conveys your brand effectively, and what you as a company is all about. it is simple, clear and effective.

Good point, mate. Feedback noted!

I personally like the equalizer. I wouldn't change anything about it. 🙂
I second what someone else mentioned above, saying that every time I see the logo, I wish it was updated, and it's mainly the typeface and the hues of the colors that I feel could be updated.

Background:
I find it would make sense to do an identity redesign in-line with other major changes that you believe could rumble the competition to your product. You see a new logo and you would expect it to already be a great product receiving updates or "what new features were implemented to justify the new logo and identity?"

Design Thoughts:
I would keep the equalizer but maybe modernize the typeface with a sans-serif display font. Something easily readable, but maybe the typeface has a characteristic that is unique to it, maybe a quirk that helps customers and viewers remember your logo. A custom typeface probably. Maybe dark grey and white to match the UI of the desktop app. Something similar to the Unsplash identity package possibly?

Hope this helps and I look forward to a change in some capacity! 😀

Hey there @christianlambert

Great piece of feedback! Duly noted ;)
I like the idea behind having a logo upgrade with added features as part of the release.
Please when working on the logo upgrade, remove the name. It makes it look long and cumbersome. I love the equaliser though

It was a bit outdated, no? Hopefully everyone else will like it too 🙂
