    So Google acquired YouTube a while ago. Now YouTube have a new logo to meet the Google brand style.

    For me, I have to be honest, I think it looks a little bloated. Read the full article over on Design Week.

    What does anybody think?

    I think it works well without the 'youtube' at the bottom and reversed colour scheme which is how you'll see it 90% of the time.
    Kind of looks like a windows 8 tile in that image lol

    I agree Tony, I think the play 'button' could do to be a little smaller and a little 'squarer', but then like Levi said you're getting into the W8 tile scene I guess.

    The icon part is good to me, way better than the original one with the gradient. I have an issue with the typeface though. I am not sure a light sans-serif if sufficiently legible at small sizes, especially with such an overwhelming red shade as a background.

    I also love the icon of youtube. Although the font was too thin. Would you think it should have been better if they have use the font on their old logo?
