A month ago, we announced the first set of redesigned badges based on our current brand and design. While most liked the badges, some felt they were missing the liveliness, spirit, and cuteness of the old style. Based on this feedback, we went back to the drawing board to see if there was a way to tweak the new style and bring more of A-P's whimsical feel into it, while still keeping the current brand in place (papercraft styling, a modern feel, etc) Today we're launching the new set of the new set of badges :) we've updated three of them, and are working on updates to the others, as well as starting to convert more of the old badges into this new style. Badges will have more color variation moving forward - these aren't the ONLY colors we'll use, they just happen to match in this set. Additionally, we'll experiment with different badge shapes and other ways to liven things up. We hope these will delight both the fans, and the anti-fans, of the previous batch. And thanks for your ongoing feedback and support of Anime-Planet - we really appreciate it.
