Super Pretentious by jollyjack Super Pretentious by jollyjack

“Our new logo is symbolic of everything we believe.”

“We love it because people might not get it right away”

Yeah, try saying that during a pitch in the real world and keeping your job.

This comic made me miss the old logos, which I see tells and represents DA way better, than this z thing.

I still hate the logo. I will never accept it. To me, it's just an atrocity that is apparently encouraging more artists to create their own watermarks rather than have this abomination on their work.

It's even a crossed out "z" which adds a negative effect...

Gotta love how the DA staff actually chose to remove this sketch from the 'What's popular right now' page when it got 1500+ favorites/8000 views in under one hour after the update. 

R.I.P. in peace zeviantart. :iloveit:

Ah, this comic still makes me laugh. In my Visible Language class I'm presenting the current dA logo as an example of a bad one: confusing and inaccessible.

In few hours, it will be a year since this abomination was theatricaly introduced. I think I am even angrier about it with the passed time. Also, to the list of "it looks like [anything but da]" I'd like to add a jigsaw piece and an evergreen twig.

To tell the truth, the first time I saw it, I thought it was a cut-up "≠" symbol.

I actually would have liked the idea of using that symbol and combining it with the starting letters of DeviantArt somehow.

As if saying "DeviantArt ≠ normal art", you know?

Oh well.

Yeah, let's make it confusing, to help brand recognition!

It's one thing to cleverly take advantage of negative space, and another to make it so unreadable that you need to write "deviant art" next to it in a funny cropped way as well in an attempt to explain the logo next to it. And even that's not working as they think it is, because the way the top right and bottom left corners of the logo are cut, plus the middle bit of the "A", make the Z's diagonal oblique line appear to be at a different and unrelated angle to the one in the "deviant art" spelling.

To me, I compare the overall responses to logo changes such as Microsoft, Apple, Windows, Mac....we all hated it, and we either grew to like it, or we dropped it and moved elsewhere. Progression happens, you either run with it, or you get left behind.

Fun fact: The new Deviantart logo is plagiarized from platzkart.ru How ironic that the site known for art theft and recolors steals someone else's logo.

"On to the next item: The DeviantArt logo. Do we want to stick with the instantly recognizable logo that has worked for years, or change it to this arbitrary bullshit Stevenson's kid with absolutely no experience in marketing or branding came up with?"

I can almost guarantee that's how this was addressed at the meeting to change the logo.
