On March 2nd, 2006, Dawgs By Nature went live as part of the SB Nation network. In my first post, I laid out the inspiration for the name of this site regarding why it was representative of Cleveland Browns fans across the world -- no matter what this team goes through, "we can't help it - we are Dawgs by Nature."
In the next month, SB Nation will be undergoing a dramatic upgrade to their current platform and editorial process. I will have more details at a later date, but for now, it is with great pleasure that I unveil what our *new logo* will look like, after the jump.
Every site on the network is getting a new logo, so I encourage everyone to have a lot of fun sifting through all 300 logos at sbnation.com/united. Feel free to post comments about the logos below, as I'd love to hear your feedback.
As for Dawgs By Nature's new logo, it is always tough to say goodbye to something you have been so accustomed to (the current logo). With that said, I love how the new logo turned out. Maybe it is just my bias, but I think Dawgs By Nature's logo is one of the ones that stand out and really give off a clear vibe that you're on a blog about the Cleveland Browns.
Here is a statement from Tyler Bleszinski, Founder of SB Nation:
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. 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.
