Burger King Goes Back To Its Roots, Rolls Out Refreshed Retro Logo

Burger King Goes Back To Its Roots, Rolls Out Refreshed Retro Logo

To further Burger King’s move towards food transparency and sustainability, the global fast-food giant has unveiled a new identity that goes back to its roots.

With a new logo, colours and font that will roll out on its uniform, packaging, merch and restaurant decor, it’s the first time Burger King has updated its logo in 20 years.

Burger King CMO Fernando Machado said the new logo took inspiration from the logo the chain had from 1969 to 1999, with the main difference being more vibrant colours.

The size of the bun was also adjusted to look more like the burgers Burger King sells.

According to Machado, the old logo didn’t “age well”, especially in the online digital-era.

The new Burger King brand identity

The new brand identity will begin rolling out globally from 2021.
