Comedy Central recently gave their logo a much needed update. Along with the channel’s first ever Comedy Awards show, they are also premiering a slew of new shows, including Workaholics and Sports Show with Norm Macdonald. What better way to bring in all these new changes than giving an old logo a complete makeover?
A logo might not be worth a thousand words but there is a lot to it. And to me, the old Comedy Central logo is reminiscent of old-late night stand up comics. Not that that’s a bad thing, but since the channel just turned 20, it was definitely time for change. The new logo gives Comedy Central a fresh, clean feel.
If your online image is feeling stale, rebranding your logo and improving your site’s web design could help give your company a much needed boost. This will help you move into a new era and you can use it to create excitement. Whether it’s regular old email blasts to social marketing campaigns, you really turn your rebranded logo into an event.
You can solicit feedback and ask customers what their opinion is. You can also use this opportunity to strengthen your brand message and really show customers that they care. Rebranding almost always means a fresh start. What does it mean to you and what are your experiences, good and bad?
The new twitter design layout rolled out for many users at the end of September and has finally arrived for the Emarketed Twitter account!
Some cool new features include:
- Endless scrolling for tweets on the lefthand panel. No need to click “More” to view additional tweets!
- View offsite media – You can now see embedded videos and video directly from the right hand panel. For your convenience, you can see it all without leaving Twitter
- Preview profiles before you follow. Clicking on a user will showcase a mini profile preview on the right hand panel. You can see all their info and quickly scroll for more or exit before you follow.
- And of course, shortcuts for the busy folks:
Some bad things about the new Twitter:
- Too much going on. Going from one panel to two is a big change. It took awhile to get used to, especially because everything is now in one place.
- Doesn’t leave much room for design and branding. The customizable space on the right is significantly reduced.
- Can’t view the time and date of a person’s last tweet without clicking on their profile. It only takes one click to see but I miss this feature when browsing users from a list.
Check out Mashable’s take on the new design and how it it’s based on the Gold Ratio. What do you think? Love it or hate it?
