Old vs New YouTube Logo

YouTube new logo changes a lot compared to its old versions. first of all, it abandons the design that separates “You” and “Tube” by putting “Tube” into a red TV-shaped rectangle. Instead, it put a play button (TV-shaped red rectangle with a white triangle inside) right before the black “YouTube”.

Also, the typeface of the new YouTube logo is altered to a distinctive and recognizable Helvetica font, which was widely used in TV shows in the 1950s, giving it the feel of “Tube” part of “Youtube”.
