Myspace logo redesign
At the Warm Gun Design conference,  VP of User Experience, Mike Macadaan, presents the foundation of Myspace’s new branding approach.

“MySpace is a platform for people to be whatever they want, so we’ve decided to give them the space to do it.” —Mike Macadaan

What do you think? Our first thought is that the new logo framework has some potential to be visually fun.
Forbes takes note that Bobby Solomon (@KitsuneNoir) identified the font used in the new logo as a modified version of Akzidenz-Grotesk medium, not Helvetica as others assumed.  How often does one see Forbes commenting on type selection? We all have logo redesign fever this week…
Below is a video from the presentation:

update 10/10/10: In response to @KitsuneNoir and TechCrunch’s attempts at identifying the font, Erik Spiekermann writes via twitter: “AG has a curly y, as does Helvetica. It looks like Calibri.”

    What?! While its true that Myspace needed a redesign (and a relaunch) I don’t know if it’s smart

    Love. Reminds me of MTV’s redesign, in that the space will be filled with artwork throughout the site.
