Oof, I like the new logo but the page graphics & layout with black & red blocks are pretty strident.Hah! Well perhaps that's a valid intention. The overall immediate effect certainly is a lot "harder"...
If you wanted to make it look like some kinda supa sekret undaground rumor conspiracy site, you succeeded :-).
Design is such a subtly powerful thing. But not to worry, CR is all about the content anyway.
We'll soon forget that it ever looked any different.
