We're on the verge of some very big changes across SB Nation—the regionals, the national site, the team blogs, everywhere—and today we're unveiling the new SB Nation United logos across the network. Without further ado:
I'm told it will scale well as our Twitter account and lboros's next all-seeing-birdo-eye avatar. After the jump, some words from our founder, Tyler Bleszinski, about what to look forward to. I've seen some previews of the new platform, and I'm really looking forward to putting it into play on VEB—for us specifically it's going to mean the ability to put together more updates without breaking up the flow of daily features and wide-ranging comments sections that we've always had here.
(You can see the rest of the new logos right here. They're at the vanguard of Web 2.5, where we realize all at once that huge text and icon reflections and drop shadows are not a prerequisite for social media sites.)
It's with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Viva El Birdos. In the next month SB Nation will be undergoing a dramatic upgrade to our platform and our editorial process. There will be much more detail to come but for now, the new logo below is just a first taste of what is coming for Viva El Birdos.
This is a small, but important sample of what is coming when our network undergoes its most exciting and radical transformation in the eight-year history of the company. A new visual identity here and across the network is only one step we are taking to unite our network of sites. United through individuality is the underlying theme of this project. You'll notice that our team colors and the unique spirit of our individual community is maintained while making it clear to sports fans that each site is a part of the larger SB Nation network. We want everyone to know that they can find the same type of great writing, video and conversation that we offer here on all of our 350 plus sites. You can browse through all the new logos on a special page we put together at sbnation.com/united.
Our commitment to passionately follow our sports will never end. It's what makes SB Nation a special place and that will only be enhanced by these new changes. Welcome to our future.
