I really do not like the new dA logo. I have nothing to say about the other changes. I just think it's bad branding and design.

There's a concept in business called, "sunk costs." Just because you've lost money, doesn't mean you have to lose more.

Sometimes you hire a marketing or design firm, and they pitch something that they think is clever, but undermines your brand or otherwise isn't good for your company. The smart move then is to pay them what you already owe them and walk away. I think that might have been the wiser move in this case.

me:
Wow, you're the emperor in his new clothes. Apparently someone has to be cruel so you'll know.

The new symbol is terrible. It's so wrapped up in its own cleverness that it's actually too defective. If you have to explain that it's a cut-down "dA" when it mostly looks like an X, or a ≠, or an arbitrary and inappropriately symmetrical rune, your branding has failed.

Also the new green is overly vibrant and clashy.

You got taken; it's ugly; you wasted your money.

At least now I know why that ugly bright green "X" is taking the place of an actual dA logo at the top of my tabs.

This suggestion by Crushermach3  actually looks more like dA.


As I said in response to another comment (which I rather agree with): 
It's not a good logo for them. We can get used to it, but why should we have to do?

Lasting brands tend to have subtle changes in iconography. This is instead adolescent showing-off by the design company.

In the spring of 2012, I tried to start a webcomic. I haven't been keeping it up as well as I should.

comic on Dreamwidth: raspberryrain.dreamwidth.org

Don't expect my work on other sites to be generally sfw.

Wait, what? Why are you leaving?

Is this because I asked you about making your work downloadable?
