As some of DA users, I had recently seen they putted a brand new logo to DevianArt....
What means this logo?
it's not hideous, it's a professional work, it's normcore flashy.
but for Christ sakes!
it's not a logo for an art gallery!
it would be perfect for a physician store or a pharma company, eventually a company involved in ecological transportation (green railways, green connections, etc).
But for an art gallery (even worldwide and internetised) it's totally wrong.
Instead of change the "erk" hospital green of the DA skin they hired a design company to rework the logo, strange idea: there is millions of people able to do better for free in DA.
Since I am in DA I hated the hospital green background of the DA skin. It has nothing to do with art or design. It gives a "sick" atmospher to the site.
Browsing DA, I had seen lot of people saying they dislike this new thing I prefer to call "IT" instead of DA logo. (IT not for information technology but IT for it =>"ça" in French.)
Some created DA logos themselves.
I am not a graphic designer, I am even not an artist. but I honestly think I can do better than IT.
take a look on that: platzkart.ru
The new DA logo isn't new after all.
I didn't created a group in DA. but since some days I am thinking of a group dedicated to those who dislike "IT" and would propose other ideas of the DA graphic line (logo and skin).
