Glamorous news, here on Altervista. Driven by the idea to have a look that matches with the high quality of our services we changed almost everything, except the high quality of our services.
Our first logo, back in 2001, was inspired by a Keith Haring design. For the design of the new logo we worked on the concept of two products sharing the same starting ground: like website and blog you can start for free on Altervista platform. Two strong trees grown near one each other in the same garden. Now, twelve years later, we still have the same mission of 2001: free website, maximum quality, the chance to earn with adv.
Consequently the new logo we changed the look of Altervista portal. Colorful, playful, straight clear. You can start your new website in seconds, check availability of your chosen name, be informed about resources and services and also have a glimpse of some of the best websites hosted by Altervista (most of them in Italian).
