There are subtle changes regarding the typeface of the logo, with the bottom of the second A in "AMERICAN" obscuring the C instead of connecting to it and the X detaching from the second E and the P. The "R" is also modified, as well as the "S".
The new icon gets the "AMEX" divided by two and put on the right side. Their new slogan is "Don't live life without it".
The portrait is still used on the cards.
The portait was modernized in 2018.
