So.. this is the best they came up with

new logo sucks by Harvy355

R.I.P cool old logo
Deviantart logo by Harvy355

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 -   - 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.

No problem.

Yeah I really hate it, still bugs me seeing that ugly thing on my bookmarks bar.

Yeah! you'd think if they do a new one it'd be something...better than that. Like something with fella! He hardly appears these days! but why did it need to change anyway? what was wrong with the old one?

There was nothing wrong with it. My guess is that some marketing douchebag was brought in to get da more 'out there' and get noticed or some crap like that. And decided the site needed a revamp and a new identity. But it's losing its uniqueness in my opinion. The logo has nothing to do with art at all and doesn't represent the site in any way.
I still can't believe the stuff they came out with to justify the thinking behind the new logo, it's really pathetic.

I just saw that you are a DBZ fan *flails arms around* AAHH! I LOVE DBZ. Read some of the comics, watched so much of the series @_@ But I foolishly stopped watching in the middle of the Boo Saga. -huff-  (And GT kinda sucks.. then again, Akira had no say what happens in that. It was basically a fan made series.)
