I’ll just get straight to the point here. The logo for Red Dwarf XI has been revealed and it’s old school. Like, 80s old school.
We’ve been firmly in the land of serifs for many, many years now so seeing that the logo is so directly harking back to the original feels incredibly refreshing. It’s the best version, after all, and the addition of the circular halo around the whole thing just caps it off. It’s beautiful, it’s simple and it makes sense to give the new series such a striking connection to the past. Around these parts we’re usually of the opinion that the show should keep evolving and moving on, but for details like this, frankly, the more pleasing references to older series the better.
It’s as yet unclear whether this will also carry over to Red Dwarf XII. Some of me would enjoy a visual distinction between the two, but most of me just wants this logo to be the one forever.
