Marking the band's half-decade and unforgettable time together, the Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary logo is an embellished version of the original.

Created by American illustrator Shepard Fairey, this altered iconic sign now features a black background with a circular logo that shows band's name and a cleverly integrated inclusion of the number '50.' Using the original colors, slightly brightened and with more contrast, this is an appropriate revamp that avoids being too over the top. An updated, yet still nostalgic appropriation of the original, this was a risky move on the part of Fairey that paid off in a big way.

Celebratory, attractive and sharp, this design is the perfect example of a well executed mash-up of old and new, and will hopefully please even the biggest fans of the legendary rock band.
