Nickelodeon USA has today, Monday 1st May 2017, rebranded The Splat, Nickelodeon's destination for the most loved Nick content from the 1990s and beyond, as NickSplat!
Nickelodeon's new name for their late night programming block on TeenNick, which celebrates classic Nickelodeon programming on-air and online, directly identifies the block with the Nickelodeon brand.
Nickelodeon's NickSplat logo uses a similar design as the networks' The Splat logo, with a few minor differences: The logo now features Nickelodeon's 2009-era 'Nick' logo; the orange "splat" is now shaped differently, based on a 1990's Nickelodeon logo; and the "S" is no longer larger than the rest of the letters in the logo.
To reflect the blocks new name, Nickelodeon has also updated the web address (URL) of the blocks official website, and well as the handles (usernames) of the blocks' official social media channels:
Website - nicksplat.com
Twitter - @NickSplat
Facebook - /NickSplat
Instagram - @NickSplat
Pinterest - https://www.pinterest.com/nicksplat/
Tumblr - http://nicksplat.tumblr.com
* NickSplat.com was previously the domain of Nickelodeon Asia's official website.
UPDATE: Nickelodeon has renamed The Splat Emoji Keyboard as the NickSplat Keyboard!
