So have you seen the new VH1 logo?
I’ll admit it — I watch more VH1 than MTV. Don’t know when it happened, but it did. So I’ve been watching the VH1 series “I love the ’70s” and noticed a new funkadelic logo that VH1 was using. I thought that it was just a temporary thing, but it’s now on everything. Apparently, the old logo has been banished to VH1 Classic in favor of this new mark.
Compare the old and new logos here.
Hmmm…it’s slightly retro. It’s more technicolor. It’s got a little of the blocky 3-D MTV thing happening. Not sure about the backwards “1” though. And why the change?
Did the old logo take its fame for granted, fall into a life of drugs and abuse, only to find redemption when it lost everything? (Cue the reflective music…)
What do you think?
