The upcoming NHL season may be in dire straits right now, but that hasn't stopped exciting things from happening here at M&G and SB Nation as a whole.
Today, with the help of talented designers and a network-wide effort, we are unveiling new logos for nearly all of our 300+ blogs in the first step towards the upcoming roll-out of SB Nation United, a re-design that will upgrade the communities you already enjoy interacting with and make the blogs you already enjoy reading even better!
After the jump, I announce the big reveal!
Here is what our founder Tyler Bleszinski has to say about the future of SB Nation:
It’s with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Matchsticks and Gasoline. 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 Matchsticks and Gasoline.
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 300 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.
I'll try to answer any questions as best I can in the comments section or you can contact me directly but I hope you're all just as excited about the upcoming developments as I am, and please stay tuned for more in the weeks to come!
