Adidas was founded all the way back in 1949, and ever since has become a staple of sportswear. The brand has become instantly recognisable worldwide with its famous minimalistic logo, but just yesterday the iconic company tweaked its logo design.
The new Adidas logo was spotted by a user over on Twitter as the new logo for the Adidas app. It's rumoured that the brand gave its logo a little refresh ahead of the football World Cup in Qatar in 2022.

The new logo has scrapped Adidas' famous wordmark and has also apparently edged its three stripes a little closer together (but perhaps you might need a ruler to spot that tiny change). According to FourFourTwo, the previous logo is likely to be phased out, and it'll make its last appearance on the shirts used for the 2022/23 football season.
There hasn't been a huge change in the design, and the logo still remains iconically Adidas. However, the subtle difference will probably look more significant when we start to see it on Adidas products. The small rebrand is the complete opposite of the new logos for Street Fighter 6 and Bandai Namco which are totally different to the original design.
We will have to wait and see if Adidas will start phasing its (slightly) new logo into its products and content. But in the meantime, why not have a go at creating a logo yourself?
