I know we are all just getting used to these fine new digs and the new platform and everything, but SB Nation (and we here at the Inter Offside) have a few new surprises up our sleeves. We are going sparkly shiny magaziney with this new unified platform of awesomeness called SB United. Above, you will see our cool new logo (that I would love to say I had a hand in but I really only made a couple suggestions), and, after the jump, our fearless leader has prepared a little introduction to what we will see in the coming weeks. Really, you will like it. It is super cool.And now a word from SB Nation founder, Tyler Bleszinski:
It's with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of the Inter Offside. In the next month SB Nation will be undergoing a dramatic upgrade to our platform and our editorial process. There will be much more detail to come but for now, the new logo below is just a first taste of what is coming for the Inter Offside.
This is a small, but important sample of what is coming when our network undergoes its most exciting and radical transformation in the eight-year history of the company. A new visual identity here and across the network is only one step we are taking to unite our network of sites. United through individuality is the underlying theme of this project. You'll notice that our team colors and the unique spirit of our individual community is maintained while making it clear to sports fans that each site is a part of the larger SB Nation network. We want everyone to know that they can find the same type of great writing, video and conversation that we offer here on all of our 350 plus sites. You can browse through all the new logos on a special page we put together at sbnation.com/united.
Our commitment to passionately follow our sports will never end. It's what makes SB Nation a special place and that will only be enhanced by these new changes. In the meantime we're setting up additions to our store so you can be sporting the latest and greatest before it even launches. Welcome to our future.
Wait, I here you all saying, there is a store? Yep, as it happens, SB Nation has a store set up where you can buy all sorts of t-shirts and whatnot with blog logos and other clip art on it. Before you go looking for it, though, ours hasn't been set up. We are the new kids on the block and, well, they have been busy with this whole SB United roll-out... I am sure they will get to us (really, international soccer in general) at some point. And when that happens, I will pass it on to the rest of you.
I know, this seems like a whole lot of change in a very short time, but it will totally worth it in the long run. Trust me, you will like it.
