“No we didn’t do the Virgin Australia logo, yes we think it’s a bit close for comfort…”
Here’s the old mark for Virgin Blue, and the new Virgin Australia logo.
“The airline yesterday showcased the widebody and narrow-body versions of its new product on an Airbus A330 and Boeing 737. They sported a funky new Virgin logo designed by Australian Hans Hulsbosch.”
Excerpted from yesterday’s piece on The Australian.
More images on Australian Business Traveller (the vertical tail fins display a different design from that shown in the logo, featured below and also toward the end of the TV ad embedded at the foot of the post).

Virgin has a history of disparate brand identities, but I’m still left wondering, why hasn’t Virgin worked with johnson banks for the Virgin Australia update? Why the design differences from the recently redesigned Virgin Atlantic identity? How much does it actually matter?
