Myntra to Change its Controversial Logo amid large allegations


Indian fashion E-commerce firm Myntra has decided to change its logo after a complaint was lodged with the Mumbai Cyber police alleging it to be insulting and offensive towards women.

The grievance was wedged by one Naaz Patel of NGO Avesta Foundation in December 2020, requesting expulsion of the logo by Myntra and suitable activity against the firm. Patel had additionally taken up the matter in different gatherings and stages via online media.

DCP Rashmi Karandikar, Cyber Crime Department of Mumbai police stated that they found that the logo was hostile for ladies. Following the grievance, they sent an email to Myntra and their authorities came and met them. The authorities said they will change the logo in a month. On the other hand, Myntra said they would amend their logo on their site, the application just as on all bundling material. They have just given printing orders for bundling material with the new logo.

Myntra is an Indian fashion e-commerce organization settled in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India. The organization was established in 2007 to sell customized blessing things. Myntra is an all-inclusive resource for all your style and way of life requirements. Being India’s biggest web-based business store for design and way of life items, Myntra targets giving a problem-free and pleasant shopping experience to customers the nation over with the amplest scope of brands and items on its gateway. In May 2014, was obtained by Flipkart.

In 2020, a feminine hygiene brand in its item commercial indicated red period blood instead of standard blue stain, It was serious in a general public that deals with sterile cushions like stash and periods like a scandalous little surreptitious. The criticized pattern of ‘femvertising’ in adland took a bloody striking turn.

From day one of the new year, Style gateway Myntra wound up at the focal point of a discussion because of its logo that was seen as “hostile” to ladies. Because of the protests raised and maybe to evade any significant reaction in the virtual and genuine world, Myntra modified its logo. It no longer appears as though a lady’s raised legs open. The first logo, indeed, was intended to seem as though surfboards piled up because individuals would ride the site.

The entire circumstance is odd and bizarre. Until we consider the outcomes of these shock cycles and the responses from brands and advertisers. All the more critically, we should consider the effect of these cases on ladies strengthening developments all over the place.

Managing director, Landor and Fitch India, Humdinger Raghavan commented that this shock is ridiculous. Buyers don’t in a real sense deconstruct logos, just pundits do. Shoppers care about the brand insight. The logo is a signifier and an update about the emotions you have for the brand. On the off chance that you take a gander at all the letters of Myntra, it is not difficult to see the visual language and comprehend that there could have been no vile plot to affront ladies with the shrouded story in the M. Which stupid brand would deliberately outrage its crowd? He also added that he wish the pundit had made an impression on the organization bringing up a likely deception and that the organization had discreetly reacted in the manner it considered fit without this commotion which gives both the women’s’ development and visual communication unfavorable criticism.
