New ReveNews unlogo

The images above are not the new ReveNews logo. The new logo will look like this:

The ReveNews guys ran a two day contest at Sitepoint to have the new logo designed offering the winning designer $250 for the design. Rocking up a couple of hours before the deadline I thought I’d give it a quick shot and, pharmacist well didn’t really think they would go for my typographic self indulgence but then again I was mostly doing it for fun, more about and fun it was. I might try and find some time to turn this into a full font – thinking of trying to make it a purely mono space font – if only a can find a workable app to do the font hinting in.

All things (on offer) considered they made a pretty good choice me thinks, pharm though the sour grapes in the corner of my mind would like to point out that this is not really a new logo as much as a revamped treatment of the existing logo – but pedantics set aside there isn’t much I can find wrong with it so all the best to the ReveNews gang and am looking forward to exploring the new incarnation of ReveNews.

One thought on “New ReveNews logo (and a new font, maybe)

  1. Funny how a business’s will not look at re-create a logo but rather revamp their current one. I think it’s fair to say that there should be a brand consistency. The “new” logo in my opinion is poorly designed not even a hint of trying to make it iconic (but still keeping the brand consistency in mind) , keep in mind that it was done in 2007 and I’m posting this in 2010. Perhaps I should design them something more ‘up to date’.

    PS. I’m keeping well & hopping you’re well too!
