MSNBC is preparing to roll out some additional changes to its weekend schedule come May 7, 2022.
Symone Sanders, a prominent Democratic strategist who worked on Bernie Sanders’ campaign, launches “Symone” that day at 4 p.m. eastern.
Vossoughian’s block will remain at two hours.
Ahead of the launch, MSNBC showcased what is likely a preview of the show’s graphics — a yellow, green and black look with the show name in a distinctive logotype that has a custom modified “M” and “O” that are merged to form the suggestion of a speech bubble or, perhaps, a heart.
The typeface used in the logo conjures connections to beauty products, with a hint of sophistication and elegance.
That said, the bright color palette that appears to incorporate hand-drawn strokes in both heavy angles and circular elements contrasts significantly with that look.
There is also a neon green light burst effect applied to the right side of Sanders’ photo (where she is wearing a green jacket), somewhat reminiscent of “The Matrix” or similar films from the science fiction genre.
