NewscastStudio at 15: A look back at 2008

In 2008, SetStudio officially became NewscastStudio, a name change that emphasized the site’s expansion into covering television news graphics packages.

Along with the new name came a new logo and redesigned website. 

The logo, set in the popular Proxima Nova font, was accompanied by nine circles — some ringed, some solid — along with a new red color scheme that is still used today.

The navigation of the site also switched to circular icons representing the main areas of the site.

NewscastStudio’s homepage switched to a slideshow-style organized by section and featuring three large images for featured galleries.

In addition to the new graphics section, NewscastStudio also added a blog-style news update section along with the redesigning and rebranding.
