London is back

Post by Kip »

Many have voiced their displeasure over the CWL logo change and the removal of "London" from said logo.

It is with great pleasure that I inform you that "London" shall be reinstated. The rest of the new logo shall remain as is with London going underneath as in the past.

Despite what you may read on the forum that the new logo is disliked, the vast majority of customers etc seem to be in favor of the new version.

The identity of London to the brand overall is extremely important in my view. Although I myself understood the change, even if I did not object to the new logo, I prefer the logo with "London" included.

Kudos to CW for reconsidering and restoring "London" to where it belongs. :clap:

That's good. Was it the email survey that did it?

Yea, a very brave move, but also a very smart one.

(Partial) sanity prevails. Now if only they could stretch the new logo to include 'istopher' :lol:

I noticed it this A.M. but didn't want to want to shake the hornets nest by mentioning it. :D

BTW...I like it.

If London was an issue due to the fact the business was not in London why not put England on the dial or if you a football fan "Ingerlund" still good news though but as others stated could do with the new name being changed back

Slightly off topic, but close enough. CW have not bought the ward.co.uk domain name. Owning this domain would allow them to point chr.ward.co.uk to the christopherward.co.uk website. If Chr.ward is the brand, it should also be the web address!
