Red is the colour of Coca Cola and Ferrari. You could say: "D is
fast and has a refreshing taste".
A bigger issue in my opinion is, that the name itself is not very
It makes sense because it tells something like: "You like C and
don't like C++ as sucessor. The real sucessor of C is D!"
But whenever I try to convince someone to try out D i have to say
"Have you heard of D?" "Yeah, it's this letter which comes after
C in the ABC"
"Have you heard of the programming language D?", which sounds
worse than something like: "Have you heard of rust?"
Desipte this I wouldn't change any branding, because most
important thing of branding is that you stick with it. When was
the last time Coca Cola changed their logo?
