Goodbye Nickelodeon splat

Nickelodeon logoI'm not sure how identifiable the Nickelodeon logo is. They've used it for a while, but I don't think it's as tied into the network as, say, the CBS eye logo, though kids would probably beg to differ. But all networks update or replace their logos at some point, and now Nickelodeon is doing the same thing. They're getting rid of the splat.

One of the reasons is pretty funny: the network execs realized it looked terrible on their business cards.

So what should replace this logo?

Like Jimmy says, given that the splat has been Nick's logo for 25 years, it's pretty darn iconic.

Oh well, there goes the last shreds of old-school Nick.

the logo is also on the page that was linked to in the post (it's to the right of the PR copy)

I love the splat and I know the kids will bed to differ. One of my son's first words was Target - not because he could read, but because of the bullseye - same goes for Mickey D's those golden arches speak volumes for the brand....

I'll be very sad to see the splat go -and if indeed that "logo" that Jimmy posted is the direction they're going in, they've missed they're audience...these are kids that needs to be brought into the brand, not the people receiving the business cards.

This is apparently the logo http://www.agency26.com/nickelodeon.png.

The i and l look quite phallic.

I disagree with you, the orange splat (and other orange symbols with the logo on it) is iconic. Or was. It was introduced in 1984, 25 years ago.

I always disagreed with Nick's decision to brand daytime program as Nick Jr., geared to preschoolers. It should have been marketed to kids home sick from school. The name? Sickelodeon.

If that's really the new logo, I'd have to say it looks MUCH more dated than the splat. It looks straight out of the 1970s.

Come to think of it, is there a reason they need to keep running Nick Jr. or Nick at Nite on the channel anymore since they have Noggin and TV Land?
