Despite so many things that went bust once the dot-com bubble burst, Sapient and Razorfish have remained in play all these years but where once they used to make headline news all the time now they feel like old news, with so many more new digital agencies doing interesting work. To be honest, every time I read about Sapient or Razorfish, my first thought is “Huh, they are still around?”. I don’t mean to mock or belittle their efforts and existence, it’s just that they were such bastions of a bygone era. Anyway… somehow — where they once were competitors — the universe has brought the two together to form the superpower SapientRazorfish AllOneWordThankYouVeryMuch. The old Sapient “S” was a classic and it’s sad to see it go but, also, not really, in the grand scheme of logo things. Razorfish’s logo was fine… razor-sharp like all good fish! The new logo is — and I don’t say this often — it is what it is. Nothing more, nothing less other than uppercase sans serif with an underscore for “digital”. It’s fine but it also feels like a path of least resistance. Overall, heavily meh-ish, even with the cosmos background used in the site.
