In the coming months, SB Nation is going to have plastic surgery. The entire community is getting a complete makeover (think the old reality show, The Swan). The AC writers and I have seen a preview of the changes that are coming and it's pretty exciting. Trust me on this one.
To get things started, every single blog is getting a face-lift with a new logo. You've probably gathered that the new Anaheim Calling logo is the picture below. In the new system, this logo will replace the current radio tower logo currently in the upper left-hand corner. After the graphic is a letter from SBN Founder, and former Mighty Ducks stat-guy, Tyler Bleszinski, talking about what is happening and why we're doing this.
Hope you like the new logo! I worked with a SBN graphic designer in the spring. The goal was to incorporate elements of the Ducks 3rd jersey and to make sure we wouldn't be confused for an Oregon Ducks blog. (If you don't like it, make a better one, and then you can complain.)
Big things are a coming! That's what she said.
From SB Nation Founder, Tyler Bleszinski:
It's with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Anaheim Calling. 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 Anaheim Calling.
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. In the meantime we're setting up additions to our store so you can be sporting the latest and greatest before it even launches. Welcome to our future.
Founder & Editorial Director, SB Nation
