So.. this is the best they came up with
R.I.P cool old logo
Basically, yeah I don't like this new logo. Tries to do too much and in the end just looks like a fucking road sign. I really don't understand why they completely revamped the logo, and the reasons behind the design and its evolution are just pathetic. It's almost like they're being so pretentious to the point where it's taking the piss out of artists and creativity.
Also, looks like they completely ripped off this logo - platzkart.ru/ - funny how an apparently creative, innovative and unique ART website has a logo that looks just like another already used logo. Apparently quite a few staff members got overruled or didn't have much say in this. Which is not too nice to hear about. Also, several posts have highlighted the fact they felt they had to keep their opinions and objections to themselves, which says a lot about how things are working in decision making terms. I hate the changes happening to this site and I can't see it getting better any time soon.
Like many classic things, the old logo got replaced when it didn't really need to. Just my opinion. And it should be yours as well.
