Branding | Wikipedia

The beloved Wikipedia has finally updated it’s logo. The new 3D rendering of the spherical puzzle is certainly an improvement in the type characters, puzzle piece definitions and spherical shading.

The treatment of the typography of the wordmark and strapline is a marked improvement. The logo uses the freely available Linux Libertine open type font.

The Wikipedia layout itself has also undergone a slight change. It took me a moment to find that the search bar had moved to the more usual location of upper right hand corner.
