Now you see it, now you don't: Social squawkers find a Gap in retailer's new logo

Now you see it, now you don't: Social squawkers find a Gap in retailer's new logo

Who says you can't change something by yelling loud enough?

When Gap revamped its logo from the iconic blue box earlier this month to an exponentiation-style bargain bin motif, the Internet peanut gallery squawked. Loudly.

Facebook accusations ranged from, "It totally looks like a powerpoint design!" to "It reminds me of the old Microsoft Free Clip-Art galleries."

Clip art? Ouch.

Gap couldn't take the heat, and got its Helvetica out of the kitchen on Monday.

Ok. We've heard loud and clear that you don't like the new logo. We've learned a lot from the feedback. We only want what's best for the brand and our customers. So instead of crowd sourcing, we're bringing back the Blue Box tonight.

Clearly, much ado about nothing is the new black.

Was it all a publicity stunt to boost ailing retail sales? Even a diehard denim maven may never be certain.

But you know what they say. If it ain't broke, don't unbox it.
