Current emblem

Wendys emblem
As the result of the 2013 redesign, the logo adopted a friendlier, inviting look. The top of the girl’s head, as well as her braids, are now peeking out of the circle, while her shoulders are no longer visible. Because of these modifications, more emphasis is put on the face, and her smile looks more eye-catching. The retro frame around the logo disappeared. The word “mom” may be noticed on Wendy’s collar.


Font Wendys Logo
In the 2013 Wendys logo, the old-fashioned serif typeface, which had been used since 1969,was replaced by a modern script resembling handwriting.
