The Biden administration has today unveiled the new White House logo...
After thirty failed design attempts.
It'd better be a good one!
Here's the full story...
Now, Biden has thrown himself into his new role with gusto.
Just one week after his move to the White House, the newly-elected president has been busy dismantling a whole array of controversial Trump-era regulations.
Mere hours after his inauguration ceremony, Biden fulfilled one of his top campaign promises by pledging to put the U.S. back in the Paris Agreement on climate change - an international pact aimed at curbing emissions that cause global warming.
Trump famously withdrew from the agreement in 2017, citing costs to American taxpayers.
And as for the country's ongoing racial division?
Well, Biden has already got to work on putting the pieces back together.
He first signed an executive order to promote racial equity.
Biden ordered his government to conduct equity assessments of its agencies and reallocate resources to "advance equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality."
He then reversed Trump's infamous ban on U.S. entry from majority-Muslim countries.
Biden's proclamation reversed Trump's policy that barred entry to the U.S. for refugees and residents from 7 predominantly Muslim countries and orders plans within forty-five days for resuming visa processing.
He also reversed the decision to ban the trans community from serving in the military.
The controversial decision was initially passed by the Trump administration, but has since been reversed as soon as Biden came into power.
He has even brought back the plans for the face of Harriet Tubman to be put on the new $20 bill design.
This plan was originally proposed by the Obama administration but was then promptly stalled upon Trump's entry to the White House.
In a Monday press briefing, White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki said:
"It's important that our notes, our money... Reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman's image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that."
She added that the administration is "exploring ways to speed up that effort, but any specifics would, of course, come from the Department of Treasury."
And, on top of all that...
He has also been clamping down on the country's COVID-19 response.
Biden signed an executive order which created the position of COVID-19 response coordinator, who will advise the president and oversee the distribution of vaccines, tests, and other supplies.
An executive order requiring mask-wearing on federal property was also signed.
He is also working on making mutual respect a crucial part of his administration, an element that was seemingly missing from the previous.
Reports are circulating that Biden is looking to permanently remove the phrase "China Virus" from all government documents regarding the pandemic.
And if all that wasn't enough?
Well, he has been busy revamping the official White House logo, too.
The Biden administration unveiled the new design today...
After thirty failed attempts to get it right, reports claim.
In fact, the whole website got spruced up and finished in record time...
Only having 6 weeks to overhaul the site from scratch before Biden was sworn in as president last Wednesday, reported Fast Company.
So, what changes have been made?
Well, it's nothing too drastic.
The main difference in the new logo is that the White House has sharper architectural elements, such as defined columns and windows, and more roof detailing. It also sits on a blue background with the presidential mansion in white, opposed to Trump's white background and a navy White House.
But, according to White House director of digital strategy Rob Flaherty, the redesign went much further than just inverting colors and adding some structural details to the logo.
He explained the team made sure the White House's front door was clearly visible to symbolize that the administration is accessible.
Flaherty said of the redesign:
"It is both forward-looking while having its roots in something very traditional. That's a nice statement about what we're trying to do here."
"We are bringing the country together and winning the battle for the soul of the nation, but also trying to do it in a way that makes people's lives materially better."
Well, here it is folks.
Pretty fancy, isn't it?
