Comedy Central introduced a brand spankin' new logo last Thursday, which, to Comedy Central, signals a bold new direction for the network. No longer does the station want the campy, cartoon-y cityscape to represent their sensibilities. No, they're going with the hipper, cleaner, more web-friendly logo above.
Does it remind you of everything, and at the same time, nothing at all? It's the copyright symbol, it's every advertising design, it's Chanel, it even has a slightly Bauhaus feel, but much less cool. According to the network's publicity reps, the design is easier to flip, turn, and animate; it basically has more options for the web. Comedy Central made a video to give you a visual understanding of what this move means for the station. (Apparently, it means Daniel Tosh and a lot of motion graphics.)

So what do you think? Are you a fan of the new logo?
