The new Gap logo is taking the Internet by storm. After having the same branding over 20 years, Gap decided to introduce a fresher look. Almost immediately after debuting the new Gap logo, Gap was bombarded with plenty of criticism in regards to the logo's design. Designers around the world tweeted their disapproval in droves, forcing the creation of damage control Twitter account @GapLogo.
