Some internet users expressed their frustrations on Twitter where one commented, “Me trying to enjoy some music but noticing the Spotify logo is slightly crooked when opening the app.” Another user chimed in with the question, “The new @Spotify logo color made me realize it’s horrifyingly unsymmetrical. Why? Why would you do this? WHY?”
Many Spotify users have reached out to the company, urging it to fix the logo. Brown’s colleague explained that the tilted lines prevent the logo from looking like a Wi-Fi icon. Another colleague added that if the lines were tilted more, the logo would look like an RSS symbol.
In a 2013 interview by Gizmodo with Spotify employees Christian Wilsson and Andreas Holmström, the duo explained that the tilted logo offered “more personality” and looked “more organic.”
