with the idea of digital first, volkswagen’s new logo has been reduced to the essential elements, which now presents as flat and two-dimensional. ‘my personal drive in this redesign was to make the W float, bringing a new lightness to the volkswagen brand,’ commented bischoff. ‘of course, this rebrand also brings volkswagen into the digital era, transforming our classic logo into a trademark that is easily displayed digitally on devices and applications.’

the new volkswagen logo was reimagined to function on small scales like a smart watch or phone as well as those that dress the company’s sustainable factories and plants. ‘we have created a new holistic global brand experience on all channels and across all touch points,’ said jochen sengpiehl, chief marketing officer of volkswagen. ‘as a general principle, our aim will not be to show a perfect advertising world; we want to become more human and livelier, to adopt the customer’s perspective to a greater extent and to tell authentic stories.’
