Two in particular come to mind. I have always thought that IKEA could have a much more interesting logo. It could use a constructible logo, for instance, to reflect its DIY flat-pack approach to furniture. And the font type could be much more engaging. Another one that could do with a complete re-brand is Sony. The use of Clarendon Wide as its logo font has become very stale and boring. I feel that it could do with a much cleaner sans serif font, which would show a more modern approach. Other technology companies, such as Hewlett Packard and AOL, have done this successfully.
