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.
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. There have been several posts that 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.

Shitstorm, The new DA Logo and site changesShitstorm- Not going let this shitstorm die down so easy.
Due to the DA Shitstorm over the recent changes in the once familiar website, I have formed Shitstorm-LLC, this page is dedicated to the inherent dissatisfaction by hundreds of thousands of users that have tolerated basic site updates – until one that seems to have been the proverbial “Straw that broke the Llamas back”
The new ICON
With all of the options available they seem to have denied the one that got them to where they once were, the original identifiable, unforgettable DA icon, one that was without a doubt representative of DA.
Now there is an unknown graphic symbol that cannot be symbolic of the original DA, let’s forget about the infamous endless explanation of the inception of the new icon, much too long and arduous to endure, for to quote thousands if you have to explain it, you already lost the point.
The New Slogan
We Breed and Bleed Art
With all of the phrases in the English language (and others)
Like many classic things, the old logo got replaced when it didn't really need to - if it ain't broke don't fix it. Just my opinion. And it should be yours as well.
