about the new logo.

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 8, 2014, 2:53 AM
hi everyone. i'm pretty much nonexistent here these couple days (weeks? months? years??) but upon seeing the new logo i feel compelled to write something about it. :P

since i hardly visit this site again, i discovered the new logo through a post on my facebook newsfeed with spyed's journal linked there (i forgot who posted though, sorry). my first thought when i saw the new logo was i had a hard time associating it with deviantart because to me it lacks the visual cue to form the letter 'd' and 'A'. honestly it looks like a 'z' to me and i don't get why dA chose a 'z' to represent 'dA'.

upon further reading of the journal i then discovered how it's meant to be interpreted. while the idea is noble and the narrative eloquent, i still can't shake the feeling how it seems unbecoming. a quick search of "dA new logo" brought me to Nsio's thoughtful elaboration about amodal completion and that pretty much explains why i feel what i feel about the new logo.

if you ask me whether i like the new logo or not and insist me to be honest, i would have to say no. and if the question is whether i think it's a good logo redesign or not, i unfortunately would have to say no too.

while i applaud the reason behind the redesign, i personally feel it's not represented or reflected in the logo itself. i feel the narrative is more of a by-product derived and later appended to the logo rather than the core insight that set the redesign in motion.

i'm not saying i can make or know how to make a better one. what i'm trying to say is the redesign could have benefit more from a much thorough research and consideration.

in closing, let me just share with you one of my most favourite case study of branding and logo redesign: google squared redesign by jack morgan. do take a look because to me that is how a logo redesign should be done.

just my own 2 cents. :aww:

:cake: for all! :D

hard to believe it's that time of the year again.

despite the constant wondering and unanswered questions, i have to say this year has been a blast. i did another big trip again where i traveled to 5 cities in the USA for 3 weeks. my white hair could also be considered one of the highlight of the year. the presidential election will definitely go down in history. and thanks to my sister who just got a scholarship to get a master's degree in japan now i'm intrigued to pursue one myself also.

the one thing that gets me really thinking hard is my so-called life calling. when i was 26 i said i knew what i want to do with my life. at that time i certainly didn't think that two years later i would be feeling like this now. funny how things change.

may next year brings more things to experience and more stories to tell.

:aww:

Morning


You have been formally invited to#ArtFeedback. We are a community for deviants who would like to be open to a new atmosphere of ART, where members actually communicate and give creditable feedback to one another. We’re helping the Art Community of dA become a better place for those whose deviations haven’t had a chance to shine or for those who would like to have their work more noticed.

We accept everyone on dA from all walks of life. Whether you've had 100's of comments, from little, to none at all. We are open and responsive to having an active time at #ArtFeedback. Creating lasting relationships and the focus of art as a whole.

Saying that, we have a unique system in our Gallery where ZERO comments are not tolerated, meaning each deviation that’s submitted to our group won’t ever have ZERO comments, Guaranteed.

I setup a tour for all new members and older members to read the new rules, regulations, gallery submissions system, calendar events, and of course our NEW! Feedback system that's 100% Proof




I've made sure to give this group an entire makeover and have added a lot of new additions to our features. We are all about Art and the passion that revolves around it.

In the process of the founder making over the homepage, we hope that you fully enjoy the NEW! Tour and if you have any more questions, please feel free to hold all questions until you've reached the tour.







I appreciate you taking the time out to read this and I can't wait to get to know all of you on an artistic level.


I hope to hear from you soon,
