myspace new logo, erm…


oh, ... wow...


You’ve probably heard that logo redesigns are a kind of a big deal.

Yesterday, at the Warm Gun Design conference in San Francisco, the declining social networking site MySpace unveiled their brand new logo which is the word “my” in Helvetica font and then the ‘space’ symbol used to describe the space on a keyboard.

MySpace VP of User Experience Mike Macadaan is all exited and explains the philosophy behind it, “MySpace is a platform for people to be whatever they want, so we’ve decided to give them the space to do it.” Apparently the blank space to the left will be filled with user generated artwork when users hover over it on the redesigned site.

I like the silent pause at the end of the presentation, when no one dares to applause or say anything… Guess everybody there wasn’t sure if it is a joke either 😉
