Why did the Mastercard logo change?

The continued transformation of Mastercard to a more digitally-driven company is reflected in our evolved brand identity—which is simplified, modernized, and optimized for relevance in an increasingly digital world.

Why is the company name written in lowercase in the logo? In written materials, why is the “c” in Mastercard now lower case?

The all lower case typography is a design cue that signals simplicity and modernity. For “Mastercard” it also serves to de-emphasize the word “Card” in our name as a nod to our much broader extension into the digital world.
