Did You Notice The Big Changes In These Famous Logos In 2012?

dominos logo change
Did you notice Domino’s new logo?

Some of the biggest brands in the country ditched their old logos for new ones this year.Microsoft ditched its logo after 25 years, and Wendy’s changed up its girl with the pigtails for the first time since 1983.

But even though a company’s logo is one of its most valuable, and certainly visible, marketing tools, we’re willing to bet that you missed a few of the major changes.
