Cosmic Blog Brand and Design Updates
by Tony Spiro on May 5, 2020

We're excited to announce some big updates to our branding and website design.

Brand Update
We have now changed our name to Cosmic. By dropping the JS from our name, we intend to not only be the best CMS for JavaScript developers, but also for developers using any programming language.





When we first started building Cosmic, we wanted adding a CMS to your JavaScript app to be as easy as npm i cosmicjs. The name was chosen to achieve this goal for JavaScript developers, and we did it. But we never intended it to be exclusively for JavaScript developers as our REST and GraphQL API can deliver content to any website or application regardless of programming language.

With our new name, and the promise to serve more developers, we are committed to providing more clients and resources for developers using other programming languages such as Java, Go, Ruby, and more. Be on the lookout for more client resources soon.

As for the logo itself, it has undergone a glow-up with a new bolder typeface to make the logo pop with the new website colors.

Our home on the web will still be located at cosmicjs.com.

Website Design Updates
You will notice that many of the pages on the website have been rebuilt from the ground up, with a renewed focus on story-telling.

When development teams look for a new CMS, it's important that the solution not only provides powerful developer tools, but also gives their content team an intuitive content creation experience. On the homepage, we chose to lead with a screenshot of the dashboard and the code behind it to tell the story for these two important team members.

The curved global nav, new heading font, and retro flair playfully added to parts of the site, were specifically chosen to evoke a space age design. Like classic cars of the 60s with their curvy design, a headless CMS is a new frontier for most teams, and we hope the new design instills a similar feeling of limitless adventure and optimism.

We hope you enjoy the new look and feel, and renewed commitment to be the best CMS for your content and development teams. If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to us on Twitter and join the community on Slack.

Thanks,
The Cosmic Team
