    They mainly use blue, but if I recall correctly, when they first launched the new jw.org website, it was a green logo.

    I think they went to blue for the umbrella brand and reserved the alternate colors for different products: JW Language app is now green, JW Library app is Purple, etc.

    See: The Wayback Machine Capture right after the launch with Green as the primary color.

    It is hardly unique. I used to work for a company whose logo was their initials set in a blue box...this was back in the late 90's. It doesn't take a genius to come up with.

    Well said Londo. The big noise JW organization made when it "launched" JW.org was laughable, among other mirth-inducing points was their highlighting the use of a "new" specially designed font for the logo and - at about the same time - a new font for the revised NWT. Whoop-dee sh*t.

    I suppose you could argue that, from a legal viewpoint, to publicize such design efforts would reduce the likelihood that another domain or site would accuse JW organization of using an already existing copyrighted logo design and font.

    Tempest in a teacup, much ado about nothing.

    I remember being criticized for using technology, especially keeping publisher records on software, making it easier to generate requested reports. Brothers criticized for having the bible and literature on a laptop. Even not having scripture printouts for the WT "study." Now, all that is out the window. I was 10 years ahead of Jehober's slow-assed Edsel, I mean chariot.
