Slack updates logo, introduces new desktop, mobile interface theme

Users are still able to switch back to the 'Aubergine Classic' design

Team collaboration software Slack has updated its logo, as well as introduced a new colour scheme for its desktop and mobile interfaces.

Simply dubbed ‘Aubergine,’ the new colour scheme is a more vivid eggplant colour compared to the previous scheme’s more muted purple appearance.

The new logo does away with the company’s intersecting, mutlicoloured octothorpe design, replacing it with a four-colour disconnected design instead.

“It uses a simpler color palette and, we believe, is more refined, but still contains the spirit of the original,” reads an excerpt from a January 16th, 2019 Slack blog post.

“It’s an evolution, and one that can scale easily, and work better, in many more places.”

Slack is currently in the process of rolling out updates for its Android and iOS apps that changes the app logo design, while also introducing the new Aubergine colour scheme.

Users who want to revert back to ‘Aubergine Classic’ can do so by navigating to ‘Preferences’ in the app’s drop down menu and selecting the ‘Sidebar’ setting.
