DA Epic Logo Entry by DeepChrome DA Epic Logo Entry by DeepChrome
Thought I'd take a crack at it. I had ideas flowing, 2 pages worth of pen scribblies, and got into Photoshop to see what I could do with it.

Surprisingly the best logo image I came up with after some tinkering was partly inspired by the features of this particular font, in which the A had a hole in the left-hand side. That gave me an idea for a real simple, put-together logo that is easily seen at avatar-size (I zoomed out quite a ways in Photoshop to be sure). The other nice thing about it is that it keeps the D and A interconnected without having to do anything "cute" to the D to make it flow with the A.

I originally tried outlines, black and white logo shapes to spiff this up, but somehow this one just looked best as it was. I also think I intended it to fit into an avatar-sized space, and the smoothed out rectangle that was used to showcase the current retro-lines logo.

I also went with the simple shapes, angles, and visual balance mentioned in the announcement as well. That's partly why I liked this particular font. It had the retro videogame vibe, the angularity when italicized, and still was very readable (D's were identifiable from A's, for example.)

The font is D3 Euronism Italic. I'm an absolute fontwhore at heart, and every single time I have to reinstall the OS for whatever reason, I see it as an excuse to go raid dafont.com for more cool lettering stuff my Fonts folder with. That's how I got my hands on this particular font. :nod:

Come to think of it, I haven't gone fonthunting in a while....

I'm off. Enjoy the logo. Maybe it seems a little simplistic compared to some of the others, but I'm of the mind that when it comes to bold logos, less is more. :nod:
