Prodigy's new brand -- coming august 2020

Your Sneak Peek into Prodigy’s Next Chapter (Coming August 2020)

Change is in the air! We’ve got some exciting things planned for the next school year, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Here at Prodigy, we’re taking the summer to make what’s bright, brighter. To give ourselves a bit of a refresh, if you will, and show up to the new school year with our best foot forward — and maybe a fresh new haircut. 😉

This summer, we’re ready to shake things up. (Keep reading for your first look!)

Something new is coming!

Our mission is ambitious: To help every student in the world love learning. 

It’s what inspires us to keep working every day to make engaging, effective educational products for educators, parents and students. 

We’re pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished so far. Since 2011, we’ve grown to over 300 team members across two continents, all while building an engaging math game loved by more than 90 million students and teachers. 

But we’re not stopping there.

Your first look at Prodigy’s new style

We’re using this summer to give ourselves a refresh. Very soon you’ll see some bright new colors, a familiar face that might look a little different and a new design style we think you’ll love!

Psst, Prodigy Math Game players: Don’t worry! The game you know and love will look the same. We’re updating the colors, fonts and illustrations we use outside of the game.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Let's make what's bright, brighter.
Our new colors: We believe the future is bright. And with that, we wanted to showcase our optimistic outlook through color. At its core, Prodigy Orange aims to help us stand out and demonstrate our relentless energy to achieve our mission. To support that optimism, we have a brand new range of colors that will allow us to express ourselves and become a bright light in the world of education.
Next year it's not only what you say, it's how you say it.
Our new fonts: Prodigy celebrates the inner tension of learning: what may be difficult can also be fun and positive. So, we paired two fonts to represent both elements that make learning such a journey. 

Prodigy Sans is a simple yet elegant sans serif commissioned by us, and made available for free for anyone to use. (It’s the Prodigy way.) 

Quick is a hand script font that represents the imaginative and optimistic energy that we — including people like you — bring to learning, day in and day out.
Let's stand out so the next year can pop!
Our new illustrations: Our world is in a constant state of change, with or without us. That meant our illustration style needed to adapt — with a pop of color and an extra dimension! And we think we found just that with our fun 3D style.
Learning is a lifelong adventure, and we are excited to reveal our next chapter
Our new logo: We can’t share it with you yet, but our logo’s changing, too. We believe learning is a lifelong journey that runs through every chapter of our lives. We may face some twists and turns, some zigs and zags but, no matter what, we’re always growing along the way. We want our logo to reflect that and continue to help every student fall in love with their learning journey.

But don’t worry. Even if we look a little different, we’re still the same Prodigy on the inside: a company with an exciting math adventure for kids, an amazing tool for educators and parents, and a community dedicated to forward learning, for all.

We’ve grown so much since our co-CEOs, Alex and Rohan, founded Prodigy nine years ago.

Students continue to love learning math as they explore the Prodigy world, complete epic quests and earn in-game rewards. 

While students play, educators are using powerful tools to align in-game content, collect student data and foster the best math learning experiences possible.

At the same time, parents are using Prodigy to support and understand their child’s learning at home.

Learning is a lifelong adventure, and we’re excited to turn the page of a new chapter! That’s why we’re also changing our name. 

Prodigy Education reminds us that learning is so much more than answering math questions.

It’s teachers, parents and school leaders working together to help every student grow and succeed — at school and beyond. 

“We truly believe that Prodigy will play a key part in transforming education, but to do so, we need to work alongside our users and make our collective voices heard. Together, we can help every student in the world love learning.”

Alex Peters, Co-CEO of Prodigy

That’s why we’re going to keep innovating to ensure students stay engaged as they learn. We’re also going to continue providing parents and educators with the tools you need to motivate students and understand how they’re learning.

We’ve got a good feeling about the next school year, and we hope you’re as excited as we are. So stay tuned, and have a great summer! You all deserve it.

  1. I’m looking forward to using this more in September. This way students will have assignments weekly online that they are responsible for at home too.

  2. This will be exciting. I am looking forward to using this much more from the beginning of the new school year especially since we are not sure what schools and classrooms will be like. This will be a great addition to the math programs.

  3. Love the new colors, hope you keep adding new in-game content so my kids keep playing and I keep subscribing 🙂

  4. I have been a Prodigy user for many years and have had the pleasure of seeing struggling learners turn into math explorers with a passion and desire to become experts! I am excited for the new look and to bring it to our “new journey in 20-21 school year!

  5. I am just amazed at what you guys do with math! My girls just started Prodigy at grade level 4 and 5 about five months ago and they keep coming to me to get me to explain the new math problems just so they can keep playing. They have already leveled up to the middle of grade 7 and have left many of their classmates in the dust and they just love math now! I can’t believe that they come to me insisting that I teach them math quickly so they can keep playing. I love the idea that they will get special assignments on Prodigy now too. Whatever you guys do, I am sure it will be magic!!!!!

  6. Prodigy is amazing! My students love it and I love that I can assign specific skills and see reports on how they are doing! It has especially been a really great option during this time of distance learning. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

  7. I am also looking forward to the coming school year! I am so thankful for Prodigy and how it helped motivate my students during our extended time out. I mailed and delivered prizes for students according to the Prodigy ranking. The reports made this an easy task for me. I look forward to see all the refreshing changes and keeping the same great quality learning tool. Thank you for this update. Thanks so much to all of you who make this available.

  8. This sounds really great. Me and my siblings started Prodigy a few months ago and we have been doing it a ton! It’s taught us so many things, and we’ve always gone up to our mother and ask to teach us new math problems just so we can keep playing. But, most of all, Prodigy has taught us to love math. So, I am SO SO excited to see Prodigy’s new journey 20-21 school year!!!! Thank you so much!

  9. I love playing Prodigy, and am very exited to see the changes that you guys are making! What ever you do, I’m sure it will be great for parents, teachers, and students alike!

  10. My kids engage with prodigy for their own fun, and have risen to the top of their classes in math, thanks to the continuous use of this game. We love it, money well spent. Keen to see what’s new.

  11. Have loved and used Prodigy for several years now. Nothing gets my students motivated for maths in quite the same way. Had the pleasure of meeting some of the team at the BETT show in London a few years back and was struck by their desire and drive to constantly improve the platform. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
