small d + capital A for classic deviant look. I combined the letters together in form of HEART (art love, art life, with love to art and with love to life) and FREEDOM or peace sign (freedom of art and freedom to share the love of art as a community). Btw that sign you can see at login button here.

also leaf as a symbol of grow, growing skills, growin community.

bold / slim versions and 2 colors for best showing of potential and black as rules told, patterns logic examples as bonus

style similar to today's, simple and clean
and font is made from zero by shapes, custom

improved V, updated and corrected

work of a genious.

that's the way any logo should be: not just initials, but meaning, and if there is more then one meaning, the better ;)

congrats

Hey man, I'm a huge fan of your works, but I think its way too hard to distinguish the D and A in this logo. My personal opinion. Nice idea though.

Totally my favorite entry from all the entries i've seen ^^ I'd love if deviantart changed to this logo!

The font is a little bit weird because the character sizes look kinda random, if you resized them i think it would look perfect.
On the extra slim logo i see 3 tiny flaws in the 'd' and 2 on the 'A', in the place where the curve ends and the straight line begins.

Now i'll watch you because i like your logos~ ^^

the typography is perfect, way better than the official new logo. the graphic sign - not so stunning, but elegant and with as nice idea behind.
good job!

To develop the lettering is hard. I used to enjoy it, but at university the teachers made me feel like I was always wrong. But you can do it very nicely (although this one isn't your best, i think) and I admire you for that. =)

Dude, i never said mine was good.. it was just an idea.. get it..it lacks refinement.. i made it in 5 minutes.. with paint.. ok.
ur one implies all weird concepts - why would a da logo want to have a peace sign in it?

I suggest you read the comments below the artwork for an explanation.

Coming up with conceptual ideas behind a graphical front is part of being a graphic designer and makes our (designers) work have so much more feeling than any shallow purely "omg, so cool" logo other people try to put together.

you judge a logo by how it appears not its fancy inner meaning, no1's gonna look at that or for that.

Well for starters:

UPS logo:
Paul Rand's (the father of logo-design) version and their controversial update (because they just worried about it looking cool, like you seem to think is the only way): [link]

The shield gives it the feeling of security, they aren't just a packaging service, they're a SECURE packaging service.

Apple's logo: (Im not going to post a link, you should know what it looks like):
Its completely minimalist a simple shape and a very simple colourscheme. Just like their technology, simple effcient stuff that works (Apple's aren't loaded with anywhere near the amount of features a windows pc is [at least to the casual user] but it doesn't crash anywhere near as much). Simple and Reliable.

Happy?

Fine.. the apple logo is minimalistic agree.. then why is it an apple.. there's a whole lot of other minimalistic things.. plus apple is a technology comapany.. the apple doesn't represent technology in any way.. and the apple logo wasn't always minimalistic if u check that out.

As for the UP logo.. the update does look much cooler and the controversy was probably about the part about "changing" the logo, not dislike or the new logo. nostalgia.. get it?
and plus the first logo''s inner meaning is very clear.. the upper wrapped box represents shipment.. unlike this logo entry.. relating the peace sign to deviantart.. when u obsere the name deviantart u see two basic parts- devious n art

This logo represents none of that..

I bet if u put the logo somewhere else all by itself... no one would be able to make out the 'd' or the 'a' or the complicated wound-up nonsensical inner meaning.

Apple: The name came first and there could be far more complicated representations of the logo. The very first logo they used wasn't produced by a professional designer, when it was it adopted some of the visualisations of the company as a whole.

UPS:- The changing was controversial because A: It was style over substance, and B: they got rid of the package, that logo no longer says what they do.

the last bit:
Not many graphic marks do. For example: The McDonalds mark certainly doesn't, but because of consistent branding through a course of years it becomes synonymous with McDonalds.

the current dA logo itself isn't clearly dA, but it is there, and so it is here.

i love your design process, and this logo rocks, but theres just no way deviantart will put a heart on its front page as a logo, at least i wouldn't like to see a heart every time i come to dA, извеняй, сердце не прокатит, особенно где артерии и клапаны видны.. ^-^

:iconrussoturisto:

first this is not 100% heart
its same time - dA and freedom sign
also its more like leaf and not red colour as u can see

well, since art is open to interpretation, i'm just saying the way i see it. its a heart with internals to me. ;) no need to get edgy, your new star logo imo, is better.

My personal Fav, and i give it credit for being submitted before the other"Heart shaped" dA logo, which i believe -imo- is a ripoff, or at least highly inspired, but that's just me - paranoid ;)
