The wordmark is fine, boring but better. The logo is trash tho, patreon is pong now?

I don't know if I prefer it over the old one, but the P being formed by a coin and a slot is a neat idea.

I'd have never figured out that that's what that was if you hadn't said anything. The idea is clever but the execution is awful.

Reminds me of the Rankin Bass logo, but much less legible.

The circle and the line aren't close enough to really read as a P for me. Even if it were more legible, though, it would be a downgrade.

Definitley. The logo is very retro, but just not in a good way. I don't see it as being an instantly recognizable mark.

Terrible logo yet it's somehow an upgrade.  The gif package is nice but the logo on it's own is just bland.

im liking the new identity. its sort of a Bauhaus-meets-modern-digital-design approach that feels pretty fresh. the colors are really nice and not as saturated as you might expect; the trendy thing would be to use a palette of neons, but it looks like these colors could have been pulled from Google's Material Design swatches. maybe they were. its easy to see how dated the previous logos were, they looked like something you'd find on 99designs in 2007— even if you're not familiar it still feels like an old blog logo. where the previous uses the style of the time and a thoughtless rotated "e" to try and make something ownable/memorable, the new icon actually has a concept to it that makes sense.  this old meets new idea (coin slot for an internet based product) falls into place very nicely with the visuals; the 1930s Bauhaus + modern minimalism thing. the wordmark is a modern sans (Gotham?) but its used in a way you'd expect Helvetica to be used in the 60s. the overall blending of old ideas and new is really smart and well executed. i like this a lot

That's the explanation they should have came up with to define the new design, which at first glance looks flat and dull.

 

But if that's what it's supposed to be, then I accept and will get used to the new logo.

Does anyone associate that place with anything but those lame cosplay chicks that try to get people to buy their non-nude risky pics?
