The previous logo was designed back in '07 and new things are on the horizon for Netwerk023. So it was decided that this was the time for a rebranding.
As an avid member and residing "design expert" (if there is such a thing) I was asked to come up with a new design that was reminisant of the old logo, but would still make it very clear that the network was heading into a new direction. Since negative space is something that I hold in high regard, it was obvious that we would try to incorporate it. The Network responded with applause at the reveal.
