7 Notes On Deviantart's New Branding.

7 Notes On Deviantart's New Branding.

A few people have asked me my thoughts on the new branding. I'm sure people are expecting scathing commentary or something sinister, but I'm not about that. The people working here are great folks, but I'd be remiss not to offer some constructive criticism about a subject I've practiced and studied for well over a decade (logo design and branding) on a site I've been a member of for equally as long. What better place to do it than right on the site itself? Here we go: 1. This site is LONG overdue for a reimagining of its brand. It took balls to undertake it. 2. It took balls because the community at large will hate it. Not because it's bad

Excuse me I was wondering if you can help provide some insight:

See a Friend and I Had Received a Message Basically Saying "DiamondEyedGemini! You are cool, and I am proud of you." But we both do not understand why...

Can you please provide us with some answers as to why since it has been sent to us yet hasn't been sent to others... If You Can please tell us why?

Well obviously somebody is proud of you because of your coolness.

Oh? Huh that's new for me do they always do this? I'm not even that popular on here.

Also another question if I may ask: My Notifications on the App doesn't work even though its turned in can you give me some insight for that?
