And here I thought that this image was supposed to be some Alien race's weird wrench-type tool! (I was TOTALLY confused!)

j/k ;) I got the "A" (I WAS a Graphic designer once, after all)…………I'm just not very crazy about it. I didn't like the new DC Comics' logo when it came out, either…………but compared to THIS, the new DC logo is AMAZING!

That being said: I like what you've done with it, Franchesco.

New logo has one big problem:

It Doesn't Say DA. It doesn't say anything. It's not indicative of ANYTHING involving Deviantart.

When you have to have a youtube video to explain your logo, your logo doesn't work.

I still need to get used to the new DA, I personally don't like the Green colour (except on Rogue ) because it's too bright but I don't hate it, I just need time to adjust to it :)  I love your reference :heart: it's excellent!

Pretty much--it's an incredibly weak, tone-deaf defense of a bad choice; a complete shutdown of any dialogue, putting the fault entirely on "the haters," as it were. 

It's the kind of weak sauce typically only seen in politics.

Personally, I have no issues against change when that change is quite clearly making a situation better, and or improving/refining an existing idea. The new DA logo just smacks of change for the sake of change, or some personal pet project of person (or persons) in authority, whom may or may not be bored and looking for something to do; an unholy union of hipsterism and corporate marketing.

As others have commented, it looks like something whipped up in MS paint in just a few minutes, and NOT like the premier website for artists on the web (which is painfully ironic: DA has a wealth of talent at their disposal and THAT is what they come up with???).

"an unholy union of hipsterism and corporate marketing."

Pretty much sums up my opinion

I don't mind change...I just wish it wasn't so unattractive lol

That said, it's sad how the new logo looks 1million times better in this context, when it's not that awful green colour against the DA grey... if they really wanted that shade of green, couldn't they have tweaked the rest of the layout colour a bit...? Blegh

If you have to explain the logo, it's usually because it doesn't work. Now that they explained the whole "A" thing it makes sense given the context, it's still not a very good logo.

I've been seeing a lot of folks reacting to the new icon in a similar fashion, Bastler... not sure if its because people hate change... or they just hate it.

I got used to the change of the site layout rather quick- although i HATED how I had to re-edit and re-edit the layout of my front page- and I'm still not happy about it because it basically buries MY ART under a lot of things I don't really care about- like what did I favorite or news feed posts or blah blah blah... You have to scroll down to see my art. It shouldn't be like that. You came to my page for my art. Not for every body else's bullshit. That' why I hate the new site. I don't want to to have to scroll down through all the much Just to see the artist because honestly- I've been to many front pages of other artist and a lot of it is... gaudy, cluttered, showcases everybody else's shit... It's not simple at all. It really isn't. It's a step towards bigger commercialism and it alienated the art community as a whole because once again people were left in the dark. If they wanted this to be a community change they should have involved the community. There are talented typographers, designers, illustrators.... and they outsourced this and got a weird... A... Z... thing... maybe it's supposed to be Everything A to Z... [yes I read the journal...]
Still...
it's backwards okay

And this new logo. They had to advertize it. A logo. Not the product, the damn fucking logo. And they used weasel words and other headliner speech just to make it. A logo should be self explanatory. If I were to put this on a card saying "oh you can find my art here" with that logo representing dA... they won't get it. It looks like a Z, an unequal sign, a % sign... it's like if FedEx toneiusmaximus.files.wordpress… decided to use the Arrow instead of the iconic FedEx we've seen... it wouldn't make any sense.

Granted- the new icon I'll prolly ignore now because again it's just that- an icon... that I overlook when I try to find dA on my bookmarks because I don't recognize it... x.x

For me it has no connection to DA, I can barely make out a broken -A- and I can not see a -D- at there.

Me personally, it's difficult to have a strong opinion and reaction about something so small and simple. I don't hate it or love it. It's just different.

There's always resistance to change.

Change for the sake of change garners even more flack.

This case is decidedly the latter variety.
