Like the new logo?

Everyone's doing it ;-)

DNN, the company formerly known as DotNetNuke Corp, changed their logo and product names a couple weeks ago. Always our inspiration, we decided to make a change ourselves. Here's what it means to us.

We love Chicago and everything about it. Our previous website look was very plain. So we spruced it up with our world-famous Chicago skyline. Thanks to Daniel Schwen for a beautiful photo.

What other thing about Chicago is world-famous? Chicago Style Pizza! We were kicking around a pizza-theme logo for awhile, in fact. Again, we were inspired by our DNN Community. The Southern-Fried DNN conference got us hungry, er, thinking of our own conference, and Chicago Style DNN was born from that effort. While a fall local conference was stopped so we can all head to Florida for DNNCon, the logo idea remained, and grew.

The previous DNN Logo, ingrained in the community for many years, was such a perfect image to represent the "pizza" in our logo that we stayed with it, even if DNN Corp. didn't. Besides, what goes with plaid?

Well, we hope you like it. Please give your comments, and we look forward to talking with you at DNNCon. Maybe there's a good Chicago Style Pizza place down there!

We were just talking about your new logo the other day at our office. It does a great job of incorporating both DotNetNuke, and something that is embedded into the consciousness of what people think of when they think of the Chicago area. Deep Dish Pizza, naturally!

While DNN may have switched to a red and blue theme, I think you made the right call in just sticking with red (tomato sauce); who wants a blue pizza? Well, I suppose I'd be open to an interesting use of blue cheese on a pizza....
