In 1977, 3M embarked on phase four in the evolution of the logo. Siegel & Gale (S&G), a New York design firm, was hired to audit the existing system. At the core of S&G's recommendations was a new logo design — a very simple symbol in a modified Sans Serif typeface with the "3" and "M" touching one another. Allen Siegel, president of S&G, also pushed for a new corporate color — red. The new, vibrant logo caught on like wildfire.

The new 3M Corporate Identity and Design department guided the changeover on a case-by-case basis. The department also did something very important that had not been done when the 1961 design was introduced: It trained communications personnel around the world on how to use the new logo correctly.
