Notice anything new about the Osprey‘s site? I’ll give you a hint: look up. Yes, that’s right, the familiar old masthead is gone from all our publications. Now we have double the ospreys and a fresh, clean serif font to welcome all our readers. But why did we ditch our beloved masthead of two years?

Originally designed by Cole Dushin and the editors, the old masthead represented a time of the Osprey… yada, yada, yada. We haven’t changed our look because we’ve grown out of it! We loved the old guy.

However, one fine day Ms. Hylas pointed out that our former masthead… kind of looked a lot like Nazi propaganda. This goes without saying, we definitely do not want to be associated with the Third Reich, Hitler, and all that atrocity. So, taking the advice of the AP European History teacher, we quickly decided to “update” our branding. Gone now is the Old English-style calligraphy and the ominous single osprey, which could be confused for an eagle.

We did not want to look like this, if at all possible.
