Carrefour

Yesterday I noticed for the first time that the odd looking Carrefour logo was in fact the letter C on a coloured diamond shape. It's only taken me 15 or 16 years to spot that. In my mind that makes it a poor logo.

You are not alone there Ally and without your comment I would probably still be thinking it to be an odd logo.

It took me a while until I spotted it a few years ago, now I can't see it otherwise.

So long as its instantly recognisable on a high street, or these days on a ZAC, against a jumble of other signs then its a good logo.

There is a guy on another forum whose avatar is some sort of blue and yellow logo, no idea what its supposed to be buy everytime I glance at it I think its the Lidl logo, it doesn't even look like it but the use of 2 dominant colours and 2 bold shapes instantly makes you (or me at least) think Lidl.

And no, I had never noticed before either.

Every day is a schoolday. I'd never noticed that either. Guess where I do most of my shopping? 🙄
I assume the colours are the French flag, do they change in other countries?
