Changing logos #8: Starlog
Written by John Zipperer at 6:11 PM
Starlog, the magazine that has covered science fiction films, television, books, games, and live attractions since 1976, recently changed its logo design for the first time. A brave move, considering the long-lasting status of its original design.
Though I prefer the original, the new design does have some strengths, such as stretching all the way across the cover (the original design in the late 1980s shrank to the center of the magazine's top to allow for more cover promotion of inside articles) and the box around the logo, which allows it to stand out against vairably colored background images.
