It’s been around 5 years in the making but we’re finally giving this website a facelift. Yes I know many of you love the current look and feel but we wanted to simplify and “globalize” our logo (currently “mrgadget.com.au”) for future gadget creations as well as improve the blog interactive functionality. You’ll see our gadget store also follow suit with among other augmentations, include an increase in width and new style applied throughout.
Why has it taken so long?
To be quite frank, the answer is because we’ve been too busy creating content as well as serving our 44,000 or so customers! The other main reason is that one of my best friend’s designed the logo 8 years ago and I was sentimentally attached to it. But as mentioned above, with a view to go international with our store and blog, it was time for a change.
So what do you think of our new logo (above)?
We actually chose to use 99designs.com, to help us come up with the final design rather than spend time finding one designer which can can often be a case of hit and miss. By creating a logo contest, we were able to select from over 100 entries and even customize the final design before finalizing the design. For those who are also in the market for a new logo, I highly recommend the service.
In the next couple of days you’ll see the new blog layout go live featuring the above logo. We hope you’ll also like the look and feel of this too.
Thanks to all of you for continuing to support us through your business, readership and sharing our site with your friends and family. It’s been an incredible journey so far and we can’t wait to see what lies ahead in the future!
Onwards and upwards.
