Mojang Studios is a Stockholm-based company that specializes in developing video games. His most famous game and the one that became the best-selling video game in history is: Minecraft. In 2014 Microsoft acquired the studio for an impressive $ 2.5 billion.
Mojang Studios took advantage of the premiere of a new game and its 11th anniversary to present what will be its new logo. The name of the new game that will be released is; Minecraft: Dungeons.
The new Mojang Studios logo, remove the symbol, change the font family and add the word «Studios». Which by the way, the symbol of the old logo according to the company is a: sewing machine / apple / candle / dragon.
I always thought it was a dragon seen in profile, especially since there is a dragon at the end of the game in Minecraft, –spoiler alert-.
Mojang says there is no particular reason for changing the company logo. They wanted to do a renovation, to update the graphic image that they had used for more than a decade.
Mojang Studios releases new logo and video game
The team in charge of creating the new identity for Mojan Studios was: Bold and the North Alliance. They designed a logo that has a couple of versions, so that each logo can be used for different needs. There is even a version where the letters of the logo are white and the background is red and vice versa.
One version of the new logo is the name of the studio, in horizontal format. The second version is the name of the study divided into three parts; first the letters «Moj“, later “ang»And at the bottom the word«Studios».
The old logo brings back very good memories, because I played every day for at least an hour in Minecraft. At the beginning of the game, a screen with the company logo always appeared, that for me meant hours of fun.
The new logo of Mojang Studios, I think is a good design, ideal for a company that is dedicated to the development of video games. The details of abstractions in the letters of the logo, it seems to me that it is a good idea. Besides that it is well justified by the designers.
Those corners according to them, are hidden places that invite to be explored. Just like when you are playing Minecraft, you want to explore places to find all kinds of resources.
The logo doesn’t look bad and I think there was creative work behind the new logo. It does not look like the logos that have been presented so far this year, those that seem made with a typeface, which you find installed on any computer.
You can already see the new Mojang Studios logo applied on the studio’s website, as well as in the advertising they are doing to present the new Minecraft game.
I would like to know what you think of the new logo, did you like or do you like the design of the previous logo more?
