The YouTube logo has been updated for the first time since it began 12 years ago. This is a core aspect of the brand because a logo is the main graphic element that represents a company. The bigger a company is, the more carefully it should implement the design. With its latest update, YouTube has evolved into a clean and conservative logo. It has shifted away from the emphasis from the word “Tube” and redirected the focus to the easily recognizable “play” button. This has a more versatile use in the global world we live in.

Here are a few things you should consider when hiring creatives for a project.
