Will Adult Swim ever rebrand?
We've been seeing the same bumps for almost 10 years now. The [as] bumps look very boring to me now. I wonder if 2013 will finally be the year that [adult swim] rebrands...
I personally like this one:
Even though the above rebrand is meant for an [as] network, I think it would be a great rebrand for the block.

If a rebrand ever happens, the one thing I hope doesn't change is the commercial break format. Unlike CN proper, AS has kept the "one commercial break during a show/one commercial break between shows" format, along with not marginalizing the end credits of each show. CN, like most channels these days, has adopted the "three commercial breaks during a show" format since 2004. I know it's a minor nitpick, but I far prefer viewing shows with minimal interruptions.
I hope that doesn't change, either. If it does, then Toonami would have to make extra bumpers like "(show name here) will be right back" and "(show name here) now continues".

All kids out of the pool and the custom life guard bumps were fun though so they could probably come up with something else eventually.
Here I thought this thread was going to talk about renaming Adult Swim and that's something they should possibly consider but they live by a "if it's not broken, don't fix it" policy.

They could rename Adult Swim, but I doubt they would want to.
I honestly can't picture adult swim any other way than they are right now. i can remember back to the swimming pool days, but it's just really hard to imagine all of [as] being like that now. A rebrand like you talk about could work really well for them, but I think i'd still miss the black and white bumps.
I would think that white text on a black screen is very cheap to make, so maybe that's why they've stuck with it for so long.
Probably why the new Toonami recycled its 2005 packaging.
Maybe they just don't have the money to rebrand yet. I would also like to see Toonami rebrand with a different TOM (like the conceptual TOM 4 pictured below), but that'll come when they get more money.
Adult Swim could do the bumps in the font displayed in the 1st post of the thread if (by an extremely remote chance) they rebrand to the style in the 1st post.

AS' trademark has become abstract, sarcastic humor in a very minimalist fashion, so if it works, it ain't gonna be fixed.
It's gonna stop working sometime...
