Release 80 is nearly here and, coincidentally, so is the Bvckup's 5th anniversary of its first production release back in 2014.

So it's only fitting that the program's logo is getting a refresh.

Alte Haas Grotesk has been replaced by a considerably more expressive Brutal Type, slightly customized and re-kerned.

The symbol has also been redrawn from a bastardized V to a proper and better balanced geometrical construction.

The symbol now comes in three versions. One is shaded suitable for larger sizes, where the gradients do not get lost: Second is the monochrome, which is a reduction of the first version to just black and white: The last one is simple, which is just the shape without any embellishments as used for program icons and such.

While we are at it, it's probably worth sharing several other options that didn't make the cut.

An alternative weave: An alternative shading style: Something with color: Truth be told, the one of the left was my absolute favorite, but it ended up looking like a royal mess at smaller sizes. And smaller sizes are important, because, you know... Windows.
