It's been less than a week since Facebook rebranded itself as Meta and introduced users to its metaverse-orientated plans. Although the 2D Meta logo might be growing on us, the 3D version is not what we expected at all. 

Meta has released an article that explains the new design in more detail, from the name to the colour palette. It turns out the logo, featuring an artsy M shape (for Meta) is jam-packed with design treats for us creatives to enjoy. Using a number of fancy gifs, Meta demonstrates the versatility of the design and some of the hidden features in the logo that you may have missed at first glance. If you fancy designing your own logo, then make sure you check out our article on the 15 golden rules of logo design.
