Facebook has changed its logo for the first time since 2005.

According to thenextweb.com, the update is only a refresh of the company’s wordmark, which is the text-only version of its logo used for identifying its brand.

Josh Higgins, Facebook’s Creative Director, said that the company set out to modernize the logo to make it feel more friendly and approachable and settled on an update instead of a full redesign.

Facebook asked Eric Olson, the designer of Klavika, the font used for the original wordmark, to design a new typeface.

The most obvious difference is the letter ‘a’. Also, the letters aren’t quite as bold or tall.
