Gap insisted the new logo was a "a more contemporary, modern expression."

Gap insisted the new logo was a “a more contemporary, modern expression.” – Gap Scraps New Logo After Just One Week – Gap (GPS) is reinstating its familiar blue box logo, just one week after unveiling a new logo to great fanfare.

The new logo showed the word “Gap” on a white background with a small blue box jutting out of it. Customers and market players reacted with almost universal contempt.

One commenter on Gap’s Facebook page said the logo looked “like a child made it.”


Gap insisted the new logo was a “a more contemporary, modern expression.”


Now, Gap is scrapping the modern and going back to the tried and tested.


“All roads were leading us back to the blue box, so we’ve made the decision not to use the new logo on gap.com any further,” Gap said in a statement.


The clothing retailer aggravated hostility to the new logo when it asked the public to suggest new designs.

The only problem was the company gave no guarantee it would pay for any suggestions it liked.

“We are clear that we did not go about this in the right way,” Gap said. “This wasn’t the right project at the right time for crowd sourcing.” ( dailyfinance.com )

Green Your Halloween Costume – Group Green Halloween Says Swapping Costumes Helps Environment, Reduces Waste


For Halloween this year, your child doesn’t have to dress up as Captain Planet to help the environment.

According to the group Green Halloween, if half the kids in the U.S. who celebrate Halloween swapped costumes, rather than buying new ones, the nation’s annual landfill waste would be reduced by 6,250 tons. That’s about the weight of 2,500 mid-size cars.

To help achieve those impressive numbers, Kiwi Magazine teamed up with Green Halloween and Swap.com to organize the First Annual National Costume Swap on Saturday, Oct. 9.

The swaps are organized at various swap meets around the country where people bring in gently worn costumes, Sarah Smith from Kiwi Magazine said on “Good Morning America” today.

If there’s no swapping site close to you, Smith said kids can go online at thredUP.com. There you can learn how to swap costumes with kids across the country for only $5 plus shipping. ( abcnews.go.com )
