dA logo stamp by Daemon-Illusionum dA logo stamp by Daemon-Illusionum
The new logo looks like a z, not A. It reminds me of math or some technical stuff. And what's up with that color anyway? It bugs me.

Feel free to use this stamp if you agree.

And if anyone wants to complain about my opinion without valid arguments, don't bother. ;D

Writer fella (Artists) When I first saw it I thought it was a sports logo/icon...a Hurdler or a person kicking an invisible ball; either way I still thought (and still do so) it was a terrible icon/logo for something to do with art.

About a week after DA changed their logo I was trawling the internet and, I came across the exact same logo (
same colour too) that was in use by a company. I can't remember who they were but they had been using it for a few years...long before DA. I suppose that when this company finds out they will contact DA and we may get the old logo back; or another new logo. If so! Let us at least hope that it it will be a logo that is instaneously recognizable as being related to art.

That's a lot of fantasy you have right there. :D But now that you mention it... I can kinda see it as well.
Lets hope someday they'll change the logo once more. I wouldn't even mind the old logo.

I agree. Though I don't mind stating an opinion. ^^ Which is why I chose to say "I prefer the old logo" rather than something along the lines of "the new logo is shit". It really isn't, but in my opinion, it doesn't represent an art site well, as the first thing I thought was something math-related...

Yea, I was hoping I would get used to it as well. Never did. The whole new corporate design just reminds me too much of something technical. )=
However, I do like the new color scheme that is coming soon. Black... Black is always good. xD

I actually like the new logo, it shows that no one is the same. Everyone's diverse and unique, whether it be their sexuality, personality, race, whatever. That's what I love about it, but I guess I can respect your opinion ^_^

tbh i like the old logo better because it resembles more of a "dA" abbreviation, the new one either looks like an 'L' or a crossed out Z(??)

You're one of the few. xD
The fact you knew it was dA related probably affected the way you looked at it. I wonder if you got it if you saw it on a different site with no information about it being dA related. I find this kinda stuff highly interesting, since I'm a designer.

I'm also a designer :dummy: Still without a degree, though .3.

Daemon-Illusionum Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015
I say otherwise. ;D
I do have some inside knowledge on the topic of creating logos and corporate designs, since I studied media design, so let me tell you something. This is NOT theft. It's a coincidence, which is quite common, especially with simple shapes like this. They are completely different, except for the BASIC shape. No lawyer could accuse dA of theft.

“Tell yourself at every step in the design process that someone has undoubtedly already thought of this and what can you do to really set it apart. In design, and particularly logo design, the pessimistic axiom that “everything has already been done” is becoming more and more true, and it is only the virtuous designer who can continue to stand out in a sea of sameness.”
— MIKE DAVIDSON

Now think about this before you blindly call other people ignorant, because that's extremely rude. ;3

It's not a coincidence random person. No lawyer would try since dA is huge and the site they stole it from is probably small.

Look this is what I think okay, you can't change that, and you certainly can't change what I view on others who say it's not stolen.
So yeah, this was just a useless conversation and the time you took to type a reply to me was useless. 

I can call people what I want. It's not like I directed it towards a certain person, I just said everyone. No reason to be butthurt about my opinion.
But of course these days you can't type your opinion out on the Internet in public or you get a response that you never wanted. Damn me for
commenting in the first place right.
