first_img Tags: Ben Partridge, Boys’ County Champion of Champions Surrey’s Ben Partridge withstood a late charge from Devon’s Matt Millar to win the English Boys’ County Champion of Champions event over the Red course at Frilford Heath.Partridge (Epsom) held a two shot lead after an opening three under par 69 but was briefly caught by Millar’s closing six under 66 before carding birdies on the 16th and 17th to claim a narrow one shot victory on five under par 139.He becomes the first player from Surrey to clinch the title since Greg Payne tied for first place with Matt Fitzpatrick (Yorkshire), Jewatt Parmer (Rutland) and Jack Singh Brar (Hampshire, the Isle of Whyte and Cl ) Woodhall Spa in 2011.He also succeeds Yorkshire’s Ben Schmidt (Rotherham) as champion who has since gone on to win the Brabazon and Carris Trophies and to play for the winning English team at the Men’s Home Internationals at Lahinch.Millar (Dainton Park) had been five shots off the pace after an opening 74 but he jumped six places up the leaderboard with a 66 which included a four under par inward half of 32.

Why PayPal Rushed A New Logo To Market

He’s got new payments products to roll out—ones that will ease e-commerce, speed up real-world transactions, and spread PayPal’s reach in the apps on your phone.So he’s got a new logo to roll out. Expect to see it a lot of places starting Wednesday—including, for the first time, in your living room, through PayPal’s first-ever American TV advertisements.Hanging Up A New Sign At The StoreWho cares about a new logo, right? It’s easy to see PayPal’s rebranding as an exercise in corporate self-congratulation, the eBay subsidiary breaking its virtual arm patting itself on the back. Admittedly, Marcus has moved quickly on many fronts to fix PayPal’s problems, from its needlessly complex application programming interfaces to its user-surly customer service, as he told the audience at a ReadWriteMix event in January.See also: PayPal’s David Marcus Has A Plan—And It’s So Money 3.0Logos in the digital age aren’t just a matter of the sign at company headquarters, though. Everyone from app developers to online merchants to physical retailers like Home Depot and Jamba Juice to everyday eBay sellers display the PayPal logo to indicate they accept PayPal for payment. As PayPal mounts an aggressive push to refresh existing services and roll out new ones, the old logo was holding it back, Marcus told ReadWrite in an interview.David Marcus greets attendees at the January 2014 ReadWriteMix event at Say Space in San Francisco.“The new in-context checkout experience that we’re rolling out globally [and] a bunch of new experiences across all of our products—as we push all of these experiences out there, we wanted to have a better identity with a new modern design,” Marcus said. “There’s a lot of integration that has to happen at the merchant level as well. We might as well do it at a time when we don’t have to go back to these guys and say, ‘Update your buttons because we have a new identity.’”PayPal = PeoplePayPal’s original white logo got replaced by a blue version in 2007, and was updated with slightly rounder type in 2012. But those changes didn’t address the rise of mobile and the need for a simpler, more compact symbol that worked well on mobile devices, embedded within apps, and on storefronts.The new symbol combines a double-P “monogram” with a modified “PayPal” logotype. The monogram, which Marcus likens to Nike’s distinctive “swoosh,” is meant to allude to people coming together, a major theme of PayPal’s television campaign. It will also become the new icon for PayPal’s mobile app, and appear alone in other contexts as well.“We also wanted to have a shorter form of expression,” Marcus told me. “That gives us a lot more freedom.”PayPal’s thinking here reminds me a bit of the design process Google worked through in 2008 to find a new icon that would display well on mobile phones.Marcus and his team worked with Yves Béhar’s Fuseproject, a design firm that has serviced Jawbone and Nivea, as well as earlier industrial-design projects for PayPal, like its in-store Beacon device and its Here credit-card swiper. The project kicked off in December—a fast timeframe considering the quantity of products and scale of change involved.The new television commercial ads—as well as print, outdoor, and in-store ads—will start running this summer in PayPal’s major markets, including the U.S., Germany and the UK. (It’s not a global first: PayPal had previously run some TV ads in Australia, Turkey and Israel. Australia will also see PayPal’s new ad campaign.)Here’s one of the new commercials:And here’s a visual history of PayPal’s logos:What do you think of the new logo?
