You might have noticed that dA has a new logo, and you may already know that it also happen to be extremely similar to this logo:



Well, that's too bad, and also what happens when one uses glyphs to make a logo. The idea was creative enough for just anyone to have it I suppose. But if it was just that! The new logo means nothing when we see it though it's not supposed to be entirely abstract. This middle ground is a failure. You're supposed to understand what a symbol means when you see it. Here it's just a puzzling shape and an aggressive acid green color and, personally, it makes me think of what I could see on a medicine package. This flashy color derails the attention from the art displayed on the site because it just stands out way too much. It's even standing out among other favicons in the browser's thumbnails.

I don't just dislike the new logo, I hate it. I really hate it. I don't understand why it even needed to be changed.
The old one was so much better, It was dA, it was friendly, nice, yet professional-looking, the kind of logo everybody could identify with: amateurs, hobbyists, pros, beginners alike. We didn't need a whole article to understand what it meant.

The new font is nice, but more distant too. It's trendy, fashion and pro, but a bit elitist too, "higher than thou". It looks good with fine art in a magazine maybe, but I think it would look a bit ridiculous with something more beginner level – something that didn't clash before.

I'm not against change for the sake of being against change, I dislike this change because I don't feel this logo relates to the community I've been part of for almost 9 years. I don't think everybody here is about Bleed and Breed Art. The staff wish we would, but it's not who we all are. We enjoy art, but if it was the sole thing in our life, then wouldn't we be a community of pros, exclusively? I see folks here who are hobbyists, they enjoy what they do, they don't necessarily want to dedicate all their free-time to creativity, it's a past-time for them and it's really fine. They're not bleeding art, they're just drawing without necessarily wanting to express something deep from their guts. That's why I think "Where Arts Meets Application" was so much more appropriate. It gave a place to the spiritual artists as much as to the technical artists. But Bleed and Breed Art is so pompous, as if we were all fucking geniuses etc... dA heck!?
Please, be humble! Humble is what we are.
Deviantart logo 50 by Izz-noxfox

To protest against the new logo, I've decided to change my avatar to the old one, it soothes me to see it in the toolbar. But on a second thought, what if we were all doing it? What if we turned this into a meme, to show our love to the old logo?
See :iconyoriden: has customized it so it's more personal. What about doing this altogether as a festive protest and celebration of who WE really are? By changing the logo, the staff doesn't just changes the image of dA, they change the image of the community. They try to replace us by something more elitist, but do you really want to be an elite? Elite is a synonyme of asshole, because elitist persons shit on a whole part of society, butts are what they are and we're not butts >:c

Petit Chat by Izz-noxfox
Petit Chat
Commission for simakai of her FFXIV character.

To those who wonder why I changed my avatar to the former dA logo, well, it's in protest against the new one. It's pretentious, badly designed, doesn't make sense, looking more like some pharmaceutical company logo than anything, and nearly makes me want to leave dA. I don't recognize myself at all in "Bleed and breed art", it's pompous, elitist, and negates that most of the community here are just hobbyists and appreciators. I don't recognize myself in such a "higher than thou" attitude. It was a wrong move and I hope the staff draw back. This green is so fucking aggressive and mismatched with everything else.

As dark as it might seem to some, because it showcases the cold bitter reality, I like that next to the price of your commissions, you also write what that amount can get you. 

And I like that. People can pick one like "Hm, do I want to feed him for a week, or pay for his phone bill?" ... Actually, phrasing it like that might sound like you're a tomagochi, sorry! D:

I'm glad you did then. ^ ^ I wish more would do this, so that people can understand why the prices of artists are the way they are. (And maybe prevent people from asking for discounts.)

Yeah... It seems normal to pay for a cloth that was designed by someone for some brand, because you buy it in a shop, but when it comes to buying crafts or art, people suddenly expect prices to drop, often under the pretext of "but you have fun doing it". Not only we don't always have fun doing a commission, sometimes it can be plain boring or very annoying when the person starts to nitpick and try to get more for less, sometimes making you feel like you're whoring yourself; but the fact that we can enjoy what we do should never even come into topic. It goes with the idea that work is unpleasant and that no one enjoys working, which is untrue. There are a lot of people who love their job, some even don't want to quit when they get old...

Actually, I am old school here. 

I joined dA back in 2006, but recently "rebooted" my account.
