Drupal Brand Reveal
Drupal 9 is going to be the easiest upgrade in the last decade of Drupal's history. With the release of Drupal 9, the project has proven its vision of transforming the development process with an emphasis on continuous innovation and a regular update cycle. Over the course of Drupal 8's lifecycle, we've seen this new strategy come to fruition with six-month minor releases including major feature improvements. With Drupal 9's release, we prove that major version upgrades are easier than ever before.
For the last 5 years, Drupal 8 has used its own dedicated drop logo, and as the release comes closer and closer, it's only become more important that we update the brand to help unify Drupal's identity across the ecosystem.
With Drupal 9's release less than 30 days away, we're confident that we've achieved the easy upgrade goal, and we are doubling down on that success with the new Drupal brand.
The new brand represents the fluidity and modularity of Drupal, and our community value of coming together to create a greater whole. The new logo can be used by itself, or alongside the Drupal wordmark.
This new design was chosen for its ability to represent Drupal not just at a single moment in time (for a single major release), but onward into the future. We expect to continue using this new iteration of the Drupal drop for the Drupal 9 lifecycle, through Drupal 10, and beyond.
