dA logo+type by Raven30412 dA logo+type by Raven30412
everyone does it, so I thought I should too...

it's really interesting, how IMHO almost everybody totally sucks in this logo contest. Me inclunding. All the "dA" letter combinations are too obvious, I really didn't want to make another heart or something, but basically everything I did is submitted here allready...

so i decided to do something less obvious, i wanted it more abstract. But, as you see, I suck at it anyway.

The typography is my own again, NO FONT. but it sucks again :D

haha this contest is cursed or something.

the text deviantart is font, or you made it in (illustrator/corel)?

I think this is an awesome idea, only gripe I have is that the T in deviantart doesnt read like a T as much, I know theres limited space there but it'd be nice to see what other things you could do with that t

Cool typography! in my top 5.
The logo .. not sure. Something in it don't seem right but I like your abstract twist on it.

You're right: everybody sucks in the logo contest.

[And there are too many submissions.. too many. They are crazy, sucky and predictable. It's because everyone tries to copy the current logo, which ironically stinks too. That's the reason why this logo contest is running, right!?... dA needs a logo that should spell its identity. With all the submissions, the Admin should feature the Top 10 funniest submissions, I reckon.]

Anyway, yours is better above others. Why? The effort and creativity can be seen. Who knows...you might win if you lengthen the d.

You're right most of the entries (even the ones by professional designers) stink. This one doesn't. There's a lot I like about this logo, although I don't think it's better than the one by liquisoft and that's how you win the cash. With a bar set that high I figured I'd stay out of the contest. :D

It's great work, just make sure it doesn't look too much like "CIA." The type is beautiful, but the weight of each letter doesn't seem to be consistent. Just my thoughts.

Yeah... A little less sucky than the other ones ;p

I like the serif on the A, something which is absent from what seems practically every other entry!

I also like the not quite obvious joining of the a 'd' and the 'a'.

Ten +fav máš za tu typografii :)
Hodnotil jsem s ostatníma soutěžníma pracema a myslím si že typografie je jedna z nejlepších, možná ú;plně nejlepší.

Logo nebudu hodnotit, moc nevim co bych k tomu řekl. Ještě se na to podívám zejtra.
Ale styl kterým dokážeš prezentovat svojí práci je jedinečnej a skvělej ;)

Každopádně držim palce a těšim se na update, jestli nějakej bude :)

fade319 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2008
well, i think this sucks less than the other entries *cough* anyway

The only problem I have with your logo is that the "d" doesn't look like a d when the "a" overlaps it - it looks more like a c.

Technically, I love how your lines are very precise and well drawn. I had that skill.

fade319 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2008
maybe you can try making the outer stroke of the left side of the "A" flow into the inner stroke of the d, so that it looks continuous/uncut. I don't know. :XD:

I think this logo is one of the better entries i've seen so far :) Tweak it just a little more and you may have a winner! :D

:iconraven30412:
Raven30412 Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2008
yes, actually that's the way it was originally meant and done... but it creates few other problems and the overall look is more complicated and kind of indistinct... but I'll try to do something with it for sure.

yeah the style is predictable, but it has to fit dA well. they are not going to change web layout and the CI style just because of this logo...
plus, it's really hard to create "unpredictable" logo just out of d and A letters :)
but I basically agree with you.

From my point of view, this logotype lacks any kind of spirit. Doesn't have any strong focal point, the double line style is clear ripoff of the upcoming logotype, which you resulted to use because of the lack of your own imagination and for the cause of pleasing the admins, for you already know, that they like this concept. I call that beeing a coward. The icon is so general that it will just stay in the cold cellar of all the so called "epic logotypes". And that is the only good thing about it. Anyways, since I've learned you're half-jew I don't like your designs anymore. No seriously, you've become so fu***ng lame, that I don't even know why i waste my time typing this.

dude, I don't know why are you acting so offensive. I put a lot of effort into this work and I think it went up quite OK. Yes it's not the top stuff but anyway. I am NOT TRYING TO PLEASE ADMINS, I just liked the idea of too lines, it's somewhat artistic and creative... and anyway: how comes you know I'm a half jew??? I'm no fuckin jew dude and I demand a justification, I'm serious. You and you'r fancy insults... It's always like this. It has always been. Go to hell.

Fancy insults? Did you ever came to think that you deserve them? For all the years you have been picking on me, because I don't go to some "high class" architecture school? Just because you go there, it doesn't mean you are any better than me! But no... Mr. Jew has to pinpoint that on every possible occasion. Just because your family is slightly more rich then mine (what a jew-surprise), you think you are so great, but you're not. You just suck. This logotype is one proof among many other.

You're slighly poorer then I am and got funny haircut so what do you expect? That's what is friendship about dude. And in our relationship, I am the architect jew macho guy. Deal with it. And about my design: again, go f-yourself!
