    Today we launched the visual update to the first new set of badges:


    We focused on these badges first as they are "initial" badges that most people get. All of the "profile content" type badges that are straightforward and easy to earn are the blue color, while we'll have varied colors for other types of badges. They now are more inline with our modern visual brand and style, with a papercraft theme.

    We're working on the redesign for the rest of the badges now, and will have new batches to roll out soon. Missing year badges for 9-20 will be added later tonight.

    If you love this or other updates, consider making a donation to support the servers/costs of development.

    Thanks, as always, for using Anime-Planet! :drinking:

    I love the new designs, but will the Popee badge, Monogatari badge and other badges of that type remain the same?

    They're sticking around but will be styled similarly - something recognizable from the anime itself/an homage, but in papercraft/modern style :)

    Know I'll be in the minority, and my opinion is solely for the designs themselves. Not to be at all dismissive to the time and effort behind them. Please, I mean zero disrespect. orz

    But honestly? They look quite bland, generic, lifeless, and boring in comparison to the old ones. Remind me of more system icons used for Windows rather than actual badges.

    Ouch.

    We're investigating the color scheme (as I agree this set could be a bit more individualized), but generally this is the modern, papercraft feel we're going for with the brand. The old style, while perhaps having more character, is an old, cartoonish look we're moving away from.

    These are great! New design team did well on that, just like the rest of the redesign. Looking forward to the rest of the updates

    If liking damn near every post in this thread didn't already give it away, I too am a fan.

    Yeah the more modern feel is pretty smooth and nice, and did I mention my favourite shape is circles?

    Circles all the way.

    Picking a favorite band is hard af. There are so many genres and options, it's ridiculous to even try it. Unless you've listened to Tool. Then your favorite band is Tool.

    Oh, have you heard Tool? Do you think it's not your favorite band? Well you're wrong. Your favorite band is Tool.

    And yes, I do feel bad for shitposting in the schmexy new badge thread. But not bad enough to restrain myself.

    Guessing this will have the same answer as @TheBoom 's question. But what about badges that aren't obtainable anymore i.e. the blog badges?
    Another thing I noticed is that both images for the badges 'Created 1 custom list' and 'Signature' are broken atm.

    Apart from that; keep up the great work!
