A few months back, in paying homage to one of the most beloved Lakers of this generation, I talked about the importance of evolution, of adaptation to the world around you. I am now proud to announce that those lessons are not lost on the great network of sports blogs within which Silver Screen and Roll is happy to reside.
Big things are about to happen. This site, along with all of our brothers and sisters across a multitude of teams and sports, will undergo a transformation into something that is leaner, more visceral, and in the humble opinion of this scribe, pretty danged awesome. For now, our SB Nation overlords are providing you with a taste of what is to come, to whet your appetite and heighten your anticipation. There will be more.
After the jump, SB Nation's founder Tyler Bleszinski, the man who had the vision to think that his little blog about the Oakland Athletics might be stronger if he partnered with another guy's little blog about the San Francisco Giants, provides a few words to describe how his vision of using the power of a network of individual sites is being taken to its ultimate conclusion. And then he gets to the goods, a picture of the future logo of Silver Screen and Roll, and a link for you to peruse the logos of every site on our network. It is well worth your time.
It’s with great pleasure that I unveil the first step in the next evolution of Silver Screen and Roll. 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 is just a first taste of what is coming.
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 300 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. Welcome to our future.
