1993–2001

ESPN 2 was launched on October 1, 1993. Its original aim was to be a more informal, youth-oriented channel than its parent network, with a greater emphasis on programming aimed at that demographic, such as the X Games. This theme was also reflected in its overall presentation, which featured a graffiti-esque logo and on-air graphics.

2001–present

In the late 1990s, ESPN 2 began to phase out its youth-oriented format, and transitioned to becoming a secondary outlet for ESPN's mainstream sports programming; telecasts began to adopt a more conventional style, and the "graffiti 2" logo was dropped in 2001 in favor of a variation of the standard ESPN logo.
