It seems that in response to long time rival CBR.com rebranding and getting a redesign and new logo, Newsarama.com is also getting a makeover starting with t anew logo, seen above.
Newsarama will not be updating until Tuesday morning, August 30th, but please come back then for a little newness…
And keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages if anything big happens between now and then…
The new logo doens’t really look like an N. It looks more like…a short piece of wood talking to a tall piece of wood?
Or maybe an upside down “P” to stand for Purch, the company that owns Newsarama?
Or, in a bid to prove MacDonald’s Theorem – that any situation in life can be compared to something mentioned in The Lord of the Rings – the new logo is a reference to hyarmen, the bonus Tengwar from the Elvish alphabet, used to symbolize the sound “h” or “hy” and standing for “south.”
Newsarama does not quite have the same vocal community as CBR does, so the outcry and garment rending may not be as frantic as with CBR’s redesign last week.
