Opinion

The old logo was pretty good; nicely typeset in an elegant serif and an "8" standing in for the "g", doubling down on the "octa" name. If there was any problem with it was perhaps that it didn't scream "SPORTS!", which the new one does in a more testosterone-esque way but without going overboard. The custom wordmark has some lovely details, like "t", "a", and, of course, the "go" ligature. I'm not completely convinced by the lower-right angle of the "o" but it's a minor complaint in an otherwise distinct and unique logo that hints at the core interest of the company but without it feeling like an ESPN sports segment.

Thanks to Tyler Hughes for the tip.
