When looking at robotevents.com today, it appeared to me that the individual team pages looked slightly off. When I compared it to screenshots taken at an earlier time, I noticed that some things were off. As a matter of fact, several pages have been revamped, such as the VRC landing page:
Team info page (specifically awards):
and overall landing page (home page):
Is this a new look/styling for robot events, or is my phone messing up and causing the website to look like this?
Sorry missed the logo reference. Yes there is a trend lately for everyone to redesign “classic” logos to be more abstract and disconnecting it from their past and present with hopes for future unknown. Our school district is in the process of doing this, I am not a big fan. I have been through this logo redesign a number of times with the MIT Media Lab, and at the end of the day, it does not change the quality of the work produced (good or bad), nor generally does it change the perception of the organization. There are cases where brands do need to sever connections with their past, as an example, Aunt Jemima brand being retired completely due to “racial stereotypes”.
Sorry for the response tangent.
Back to topic at hand - I do expect to see a VAIC logo for HS and U that are different if there are separate sections on RobotEvents, otherwise it is confusing for teams to find events and info for their programs (much like VRC and VEX-U have different areas on RobotEvents with separate logos for visual identity).
I think the layout will be tuned to order the programs over time to make it easier to navigate. Right now there is a tension between RECF run programs based on VEX products, Drones, Grants, certifications, other programs. Not an easy task with so many dimensions to represent on a two dimensional plane.
