That said, I like the old logo better. These all have a very generic feel to them and will most likely always need the "Mountain Project", "Hiking Project", etc titles next to them for them to be recognized out in the wild.
Then again the site/content is awesome so wtf do I care what the logo is. You guys do great work!
Not sure why the figure on the logo is falling. Going to echo that this would have been a good contest to put to the community.
The new logo looks like two people couldn't decide between having it be a Mountain (bc Mountain Project) or an overhanging sport climb (because sport climbing!). Just pick one and make it look good. This compromise *falls* flat.
EDIT to add quote from above

I get that it unifies all the other logos together but with powder project, why not a person skiing? if one can be unique, why cant they all?
