Opinion

The old logo was fine for a web publication; nothing fancy (at all) but nothing offensive either, just some kind of sports, collegiate font. The new logo reflects the growth of Bleacher Report into a mainstream sports source with a much more defined and purposeful logo. The B/R monogram has been neatly updated into condensed, industrious letterforms connected by a half-slash, half-hyphen device that has a subtle dynamic upward motion as it follows the bottom of the “B” into the “R”. It’s a tight, cool unit. The wordmark uses the same font style and it’s fine… better than the old one for sure but it gets little air time in contrast to the monogram, which is getting most of it. Its crisp and bold letterforms work great to put it on top of images and it has excellent readability at small sizes. If nothing else, the new look has given B/R some extra swagger as evidenced by the video directly above. Overall, a great, solid update that builds on the equity of the original while improving graphically on every aspect.

Thanks to Ty B for the tip.
