Dezeen names top rebrands of 2021 and lists Facebook's Meta, Volvo and the Whitehouse along with MIDI 2.0

Dezeen is the world's most popular and influential architecture, interiors and design magazine, with over three million monthly readers and six million social media followers.

Pentagram makes this list again with its brand identity for Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI), the global standard that allows digital musical instruments to talk to each other.

Yuri Suzuki, a musician and Pentagram partner, worked with the graphic designer and partner Sascha Lobe on the update. The logo, which looks like an abstract letter M, replaces its previous wordmark and follows the 2020 release of MIDI 2.0, the first major update of the standard in over 35 years.
