YouTube is getting a new logo every week this month – here's why

If you happened to visit YouTube on Monday (which isn't unlikely, what with it being the second most-visited website in the world), you might have noticed an unfamiliar logo. To mark Black History Month (BHM), the company has announced that Black artists will reimagine the site's logo every week in February. 

A new design will appear on the site every Monday, with Brazil-based artist Leandro Assis's interpretation adorning the homepage at the start of this week. Assis's logo (below) features the familiar red play button, but with stylised 'BHM' lettering replacing the standard YouTube wordmark.
