Someone has to tell you this for your best interest, we are here for you Onshape! 

The new logo and color is NOT good. The white and blue is very clean, modern, and inviting. While green, dark blue, and white are very out of date looking and not clean, simple or inviting.

    That is true, unfriendly colors.

    New logo/branding is not pleasant. very 2000's..

    Well said @alnis_smidchens. That is a more elegant way to say it.

    Just noticed the change on the homepage and I am not a fan. I think the original branding looks modern and much better. It gave the appearance of modern software in an industry full of old programs.

    I also prefer the blue color over the new green. I never cared for that green when I was using other PTC products in the past and I dont care for it now. My wife took one look and called it an ugly color lol

    Has anyone made an improvement request to reject the change? I'll put my vote on it. I enjoy using Onshape and hope for it to remain the thoroughly modern CAD program I've come to love both in function and form!

    Weird that they would rebrand the landing page but everything else is the same for now. I hope when they release the rest of their "improvements", it doesn't ruin the user interface...

    It has changed again, although better than green and black, the PTC inspired logo really is not pleasant, its sharp and geometric vs what is soft throughout the rest of the branding. just feels unpolished, and agree with the sentiment here that Onshape had it right the first time, id rather live with the subtext : a subsidiary of PTC group for instance. I suppose probably Onshape people feel similar.

    Assimilation by the BORG has begun. Resistance is futile.

    Does the dark background for the logo mean that Onshape is getting a dark mode?

    I wouldn't read that much into the dark background, dark mode is likely a ways off.

    Only got 5 hours of sleep last night. Fortunately it has been changed back to a more approachable and modern look.

    Sigh... Thank you. I will be able to sleep tonight.   ;)

    Hmm.. The symbolism of the large green box surrounding the small white box with onshape written in the same color; looks to me like big brother ptc has little Onshape trapped. 

    I know this isn't the case, but that was what I see. 

    So does this mean we won't be wrong if we forget to capitalize the O in Onshape now? 😉

    I'm curios to see what PTC has in store for the future of Onshape. PTC has some neat augmented reality modeling projects in their portfolio of products.

    On a similar note, I will be switching from pc to Apple glasses whenever Apple releases them. My assumption is that most people will not be using a pc for too much longer once those are released. Unlike phones and tablets, the glasses will have a faster user interface than the keyboard and mouse.

    I would like Onshape to be the modeling platform that everyone uses with Apple glasses.

    I'm so glad I found this thread. I only saw the change briefly while distracted teaching a class and then when I went back to check it out it have vanished. Was beginning to think I was going mad!
