eBay is growing up and has a new logo to prove it.

The MTA announced it will offer ad space on the front and back of MetroCards. The MTA isn’t being precious about their logo either, the entire space is up for grabs, other than the black strip.

While it’s bittersweet to see an iconic piece of New York become ad space, maybe this means the F train will actually run on weekends.
The New York Times Magazine asked 8 designers to re-imagine their logo for the latest issue. From simple font change to adding laserbeam-eyed cats, the designers truly embraced the freedom of the assignment. Check out the designs here.
