KNOWLEDGE PARTNER

The Green Dot at the end of Deloitte’s logo is an instantly recognizable symbol of Deloitte. But would it be such a beloved feature if it had been a different color?

Deloitte rebranded in 2003 after its plan to sell its management consulting business fell through. As the organization faced the difficult task of reintegrating Deloitte Consulting, which had operated more or less independently since 1995, it felt a new brand identity was needed in order to bring the different pieces back together.
