Guys, this is super huge. Like...amazingly huge. I'm so excited about this announcement and you will be too. Some awesome/crazy/impossibly creative updates are coming to the entire SBNation network. These updates will involve a totally new set-up that will optimize the blog experience and community. It will make it easier for me to provide you guys with important information and give me the ability to do so in more creative and diverse ways. Along with that comes a total overhaul of the site layouts and branding. Also: a new logo which I think is pretty sharp.
You'll be totally caught up to speed in the coming weeks, but here's a statement from SBNation's founder to get you started.
It’s with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Fear The Sword. 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 Fear The Sword.
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.
