A logo redesign can be a risky undertaking.
When The New York Times removed the period from its logo in 1967, many were outraged at the change, which was supposed to save the paper on ink costs. The deletion was so surprising to readers that it may have even resulted in The Gray Lady losing 1,000 subscribers.
