We've got some changes coming to Over the Monster in the coming weeks and months. Well, changes to the whole SB Nation network, really, not just little old us. (No, no, it's not more aliens, I promise you that.) Basically, things will be prettied up a bit, made more modern, with the sports wing of Vox Media getting into the swing of all those lovely website tools that have been floating around as of late. You'll still be getting the same doses of myself, Ben Buchanan, and the rest of the crew here.
Maybe you don't want more change, but believe me, this stuff is pretty cool. And that's coming from someone who has to relearn a whole lot of things he knows about publishing with this software, too. Plus, and I know this will make a lot of people happy, the logo for OTM is changing! (Cue joy from our more logo-hating community members.)
Enough from me, though. Let's see what SBN's founder, Tyler Bleszinski, has to say on the matter. That, and the new logo, can be found after the jump.
It's with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Over the Monster. 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 Over the Monster.
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.
So hey, when the new logo shows up at Over the Monster, you can't be taken by surprise. This is your warning!
So, what do you think? Play nice, please.
