Good morning Hoopusters.
Look at the logo. Pretty, isn't it? It's actually one of many that are now rolling out across SB Nation today, across all blogs in all sports, as a precursor to a big, awesome platform upgrade soon coming to SB Nation as a big move to build a more united blogosphere.
SB Nation was founded when Tyler Bleszinski had the small but significant idea to link his blog about the Oakland As to a different blog about the SF Giants. He now oversees hundreds of blogs covering just about every professional sports team in the nation, and is very pleased to be heading this new project:
It’s with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Canis Hoopus. 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 Canis Hoopus.
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 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.
