Uber delivers ice cream for OzHarvest

Uber has tied up with OzHarvest and some of Australia's best celebrity chefs for the return of Uber Ice Cream.

Mastercard gets first new logo in 20 years

Mastercard has revealed a new design of its consumer-facing logo – the first in 20 years. Created by design firm Pentagram, the look will roll out in conjunction with a new secure digital payment system, Masterpass. The change has been made to modernise the brand and optimise it for digital properties. The brand also just wanted a simpler design that would be flexible at all touch points, but one that wouldn't veer drastically away from its current logo.
