dA Logo by CaPtIne dA Logo by CaPtIne
Thought I'd give it a try.

I took into consideration what Ryan Ford said about the angular lines, how they convey emotion.

"Angular lines imply motion and excitement, and are reminiscent of the shape people take when they're running (among other things)."

This parallel to the shape of a person running inspired both the angle and tail at the end of each stroke, which I thought suggested movement.

This design is one of many sketches, but alot of them were quite minimalistic and thin. Mainly becuase I felt that thinner lines elongated the logo and helped it appear more corporate;

"...the best logos are the ones that feel official."

..but then...

"A great logo is bold and isn't quiet."

Finally, I really like the new logo that $liquisoft and the team created. BUT. If I was to see it on its own, black on white & had no recognition of what deviantART was, I would probably struggle to depict the 'd' from the 'a' or what it represented. Which is why I chose to capitalise the letter 'A' and not join the center stroke to the 'd', to separate them both a little.

I don't know if anyones noticed, but upside down, it makes absolute mint t/vp logo.

Thank you

Nice, certainly much better, and more legible, then the one they came up with. :)

One of the only entries where I can differentiate the d and the A easily. It does look a little sporty, but I like the bold look to it, and the angular feel. I might prefer it if the top of the d didn't stick out much, though. Still... very professional looking.

Very, -very- sexy indeed, my friend. :lol: Love it a lot, good to see it's getting the attention it deserves!

I like everything about this logo except for the top of the A. How the little piece sticks off from the right side, instead of being a pointed/rounded tip.

I like this one, though I see what people mean about EA. It also slightly reminds me of Nike (the d), but it's nice! Good luck!
nice logo ... it looks fast ... and the things the wanted to say with angural line are that angular lines are authoritative and make a deep impression on a person like a man with alot of power ( best example is nazi symbol for it ... we all know who used it , right ? ) anyway about your logo, it represents speed very very well but laks the impact ... it just speeds off into infinity .... i dont feel it will ever make and impact somewhere, if you understand what i ment :S
