With the beginning of 1996, the company modified its logo to make it look better than ever. The new logo gets a broad ring that has the brand name with the baby boy placed in the middle of the ring. The baby boy also got modified a bit to make it quite contrasting to its background. Just like ever, the baby boy still shows while shouting for something.
