Discord was updated with a new logo last week to celebrate the popular chat client’s sixth birthday. Unfortunately, the designers appear to have made a big mistake on the new font selection, as it has received quite a bit of ridicule since its unveiling on Thursday. Discord’s mascot, Clyde, has also received a few changes, but they’re subtle enough to not have triggered any long-time users.

Apparently it’s a tweaked version of the font Ginto, which isn’t really important because it turns out everyone has decided to moan about it anyway. The top reply to Discord’s tweet is someone asking other users to come up with a better font, a challenge that has already seen nearly 800 replies.
