HMRC unveils new look logo

The Revenue has announced it will sport a new look from now on with the unveiling of a new logo.

The redesign is part of HMRC’s digital strategy and move to online governmental portal GOV.UK.

HMRC will no longer use the aqua logo, but a simplified version that the Cabinet Office has introduced as a “single identity” for government organisations, which it said will make it easier for the public to recognise departments.

They'd obvioulsy overestimated take up when ordering those slips.

If genuinely 'at no cost' then clearly nobody spent any time giving to consideration to it at all - in a commercial world time costs - undoubtedly somewhere in Gov.uk there lurks a team who, at cost to the taxpayer, spend their time devising these changes 'at no cost'.  Part of the problem is the failure of the civil service to cost time properly - perhaps if they did some of the more stupid and pointless enquiries that we have to put up with would disappear to the mutual benefit of the civil service and the real world.

The new logo isn't going to make them any more efficient, and the taxpayer isn't really going to "gel" with the new branding :-)  You've got to laugh about using up old stationery, the number of letters we've had that show details of closed offices and unobtainable phone lines...why am I wasting my unbillable time responding to this article!

Whilst HMRC are usually stationary surely the writer is aware that we are talking about stationery.
