Zeviant FartThere's nothing more I can add to the debate/communal rant currently taking place that has not already been said, other than repeat my opinion that, if something requires explanation, it's not art. This is doubly so when it comes to a logo, which is supposed to convey a message by way of a simplified image, be that message a name or a graphical representation of purpose and/or meaning.Zeviant Fart by jollyjack

Overthought, Underbaked: The Controversial New DA Logo
So, in response to requests for my thoughts on the new DA logo — and being disinclined to type the same response repeatedly — I will lay out my impressions here.
To paraphrase a certain swordsman: "You keep using that logo, but I do not think it conveys what you think it does."
The new logo is certainly clever, and as a designer — setting aside any resemblance to the platzkart.ru logo, accidental or otherwise — one can easily imagine the careful thought that went into its concept and execution, but...
If there is one thing that I took from my schooling in graphic design, it was the importance of clarity: of meaning, of import, of impression. This was true for any work, its composition, it layout, its style — its effective visceral message. Logo design, above all, is go

Staying or LeavingIf you love/like/don't care about the new logo please don't read/comment this journal; I want to express my feelings about this.Staying or Leaving by HoneyGoddess57
Now let's begin this, I really wish that I didn't need to say this but I feel that Deviantart is now dead. They have made so many changes that some of us members of the community didn't want; yet we have accepted those in a quick of time. However, this time I don't think I'll accept this one OR the other changes in the future...
"This One" I'm talking about is the new logo of Deviantart, I really dislike it. Like really, what was the use of changing it when the old one was perfect for this community. I mean, I didn't see any other sites with the same logo as the old logo of this community.
As for the new one there's reasons why I hate it; first thing: It looks like a Z, a % or a $. The new logo I find looks like it's err- wrong for the community? Yes, indeed. I just find that the old one fitted this community as much as this
WE THE PEOPLEI am sorry to the staff of DeviantArt. I do not want to sound rude, but from some of the replies you give us... They are cold, conceited and brushing us aside. Do you only care for yourselves? Because to the rest of us out there, THAT is what you are doing a good job at showing.
WE ARE YOUR VOICE! WE MAKE THIS SITE WORK! FOR YOU! IF IT WASNT FOR US, YOU WOULDNT HAVE A PAYCHECK!
PLEASE remember that at the end of the day when you "mock" or "pity" those of us whom disagree with your marketing strategies and dumbfounded logos. I think I speak for everyone here when I say that this could have been though out better. YOU claim you wish to have the voice of the nations of your site support you and speak up. Yet when WE do, you brush us aside because it is not what you wished to hear.
Well I am sorry princess, I am not going to worship the ground you walk on.
Yes I have been on DA for the past 10 years. Jumping between 3 a
