September Design Article

This article is also on Medium.

Since I committed at the beginning of 2019 to write monthly design articles and have yet to release a September article as of 9 PM on September 30th, I will just throw any random art and design thoughts I have onto the screen. Considering only about one-and-a-half of you actually read these, what I write or frankly whether or not I even write at all doesn't matter as long as I don't write something that triggers any three-letter government organizations.

I'm not sure how to feel about the new Yahoo! logo. Do they still go as “Yahoo!” or do they now go as “Yahoo”? I'm too lazy to look it up, just as I'm too lazy to post images for references instead of links, and just as I'm too lazy to write a legit design article for this month (I'm exhausted and uninspired). Anyway, when I look at the new logo, “alright” comes to mind. The logo gives me the same emotional response as just about every logo they've had to date. I'm not sure what curse the letters Y-A-H-O-O have that make creating a logo so difficult, but I even threw together a quick redesign concept of my own back in 2017 and still did not come away entirely satisfied with the results.

I also intended to discuss how plain and boring the new Golden State Warriors “San Francisco” jerseys look, but I'll cut them some slack since they will wear the jerseys as throwbacks and not a new design, and I don't feel like writing anything beyond this point. This month beat me up. I'm tired.
