Mastercard has announced they are changing their iconic logo – We take a look at the new contemporary logo and ask the question, after 20 years what made Mastercard

Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing and communications officer said “To thrive in this new digital world where business moves faster than ever, we want to modernize and elevate the brand in a design that is simple and elegant, yet unquestionably Mastercard.

“We’ve been on a fantastic trajectory, with digital technology being an increasingly important part of our business,” Rajamannar added, “Now it’s time for our brand to embody the company we’ve become.”


The new brand  will be rolled out to all Mastercard products, communications, and experiences, starting with Masterpass this month, and across Mastercard beginning in the fall.
