Our long-term readers may have noticed that The Paranoid Gamer has been down for several weeks now. To put it bluntly I don’t think anyone really liked the previous layout. When the design launched earlier this year it was part of an effort to strip down a bunch of the complications that the previous designs had. To put things like page speed and simplification at the forefront, and to freshen up the look with some different colors. Some of the users didn’t like the changes, and to be fair, I think in the long term they were right. A red color scheme and more bold design have always been a part of the TPG DNA, and an the effort to freshen and simplify things we lost that with the previous design. With that being said, I think naturally we had to move away from our previous designs as it was killing users with unnecessary load times.
I truly believe what we have now is a much faster spiritual successor to our more popular design back then.
What do you think?
Even before settling on a new design we looked heavily into other logos. I got a lot of feedback from regular site visitors as well as staff members before picking the new logo you see now.
To get an idea of the other logos we were looking at check them out below:
The alien was a pretty close 2nd, however we liked the unique flavor of the 2nd design, and felt that while cool, the alien has been done to death.
Anyway, check out the new site and let us know what you like and don’t like in the comment section.
Expect a bunch of new content as we kick the New Year off.
Thanks for the support!
