Owned by: MTV Networks under Viacom International Inc.
Design: Nick in-house team and others like Trollbäck + Company
Design brief: ‘The new logo is set in a rounded typeface with the letter “i”, looking like a little person, being the focal point. We wanted to clean it up and allow Nick to be the stamp on all of these channels, that ultimately meant jettisoning the familiar Nickelodeon “splat.”’
Logo release: August, 2009
I always thought that the ‘splat’ logo is gross. The new logo is good.
Because of the length of the name, they generally use only ‘Nick.’
