In 2011, ChaseRaz purchased Multinewmedia.com from a domain auction. His intent was to spread the word about the amazing interactive and social revolutions taking place online. Business and education were being transformed thanks to the democratization of technology and the proliferation of open web services. Chase took to styling Multinewmeida as "multi•new•media" to emphasize each portion of the name.
In 2012, Christopher Woodward joined the Multinewmedia blog as a guest contributor. The Blogger-powered blog was primarily focused on republishing the technology and marketing articles written by Chase and Christopher for other online publications such as the now-defunct Examiner.com.
Republishing helped Chase and Christopher to increase their readership synergistically as well as to showcase their work in a more focused space, but it led to the understanding that Multinewmedia could provide value and stand on its own.
Over the course of a year, starting in April 2014, Multinewmedia underwent its first rebranding. The multi-colored (but predominantly brown) cartoon approach was gone and the focus on orange as the brand's primary color was enforced. A darker blood-orange letter "M" was placed on a black background as the logo, and green was chosen as a secondary color to compliment orange, as was popular at the time. It wasn't our finest branding work, but it was 2014 and deemed as permissable for some strange reason.
In 2015, Chase further developed the focus of Multinewmedia toward the production of a near-weekly new-media show. Blog space began to be dedicated to first-run articles rather than syndicated content as both Chase and Chrisopher ended their involvement with other sites. This signaled the shift towards Multinewmedia as a content creating entity and not an aggregator.
In March 2015, Chris Ayers joined the Multinewmedia team as the Technology Co-Host. His addition complimented the existing business and technology focus of Multinewmedia's new podcast.
Throughout 2016, Multinewmedia underwent another rebranding and expanded its reach by joining new podcast marketplaces. Multinewmedia entered Google Play and began to build upon a 2015 experiment of using a hexagon as an identifying shape for the site. A gray hexagon replaced the field of black previously used in the logo since 2014.
