everyone does it, so I thought I should too...

it's really interesting, how IMHO almost everybody totally sucks in this logo contest. Me inclunding. All the "dA" letter combinations are too obvious, I really didn't want to make another heart or something, but basically everything I did is submitted here allready...

so i decided to do something less obvious, i wanted it more abstract. But, as you see, I suck at it anyway.

The typography is my own again, NO FONT. but it sucks again :D

haha this contest is cursed or something.

the text deviantart is font, or you made it in (illustrator/corel)?
Raven30412's avatar
it's all done in corel, no fonts used at all.

I think this is an awesome idea, only gripe I have is that the T in deviantart doesnt read like a T as much, I know theres limited space there but it'd be nice to see what other things you could do with that t
Raven30412's avatar
yeah... i could make it look more like normal t, but i think i looks less boring this way :) thanks for the comment!

Cool typography! in my top 5.
The logo .. not sure. Something in it don't seem right but I like your abstract twist on it.

You're right: everybody sucks in the logo contest.

[And there are too many submissions.. too many. They are crazy, sucky and predictable. It's because everyone tries to copy the current logo, which ironically stinks too. That's the reason why this logo contest is running, right!?... dA needs a logo that should spell its identity. With all the submissions, the Admin should feature the Top 10 funniest submissions, I reckon.]

Anyway, yours is better above others. Why? The effort and creativity can be seen. Who knows...you might win if you lengthen the d.

You're right most of the entries (even the ones by professional designers) stink. This one doesn't. There's a lot I like about this logo, although I don't think it's better than the one by liquisoft and that's how you win the cash. With a bar set that high I figured I'd stay out of the contest. :D

It's great work, just make sure it doesn't look too much like "CIA." The type is beautiful, but the weight of each letter doesn't seem to be consistent. Just my thoughts.

Yeah... A little less sucky than the other ones ;p

I like the serif on the A, something which is absent from what seems practically every other entry!

I also like the not quite obvious joining of the a 'd' and the 'a'.

I think this is fantastic. Good job, it doesn't suck at all.
