dA logo by SmirapDesigns by SmirapDesigns dA logo by SmirapDesigns by SmirapDesigns
I put alot of thought into this.
What i thought about was how would i imagine
and like the new dA logo to look like.
Basically i didn't do anything extreme & wild,
what i did was refresh the old one in a way.
Here are some details on what i had in mind
and did to the logo you're looking at.

1. Smooth: more round edges=friendly, approachable & open to human contact.
2. The logo as a whole creates some kind of circle (circular shape): interactive community=give and get
3. Bold: big company/community/site= power & influence
4. Clean: it is open to everyone

*Edit: Fixed the typography a little bit & added the logo in a box as alot of people have done.

Hope you get my point and hope you like it!
Let me know what you think.
Thanks!

I've looked through others, but I really wish this one would be selected as dA's new logo
I love the simplicity of this and I admire your talent.

looks pretty good. I think the A looks too much like a B in my opinion.

In my opinion, your A looks too much like a capital D with a dash in it and I kind of lose any feel it has, especially with the century gothic text.

like it. and turn it on it's side and it looks like a mouse.

only thing. kerning between n and t could be tightened. and also looks a bit like a chode on its side.
