Epic Logo by Aeoll Epic Logo by Aeoll

Concept:

I have taken inspiration from the best features of the 2 logos dA is currently using. I really like the 'geeky', futuristic style of the new one, but it is quite static, and the multiple strokes aren't particularly easy on the eyes.
I've tried to stick to a geometric form without producing something that is a little too 'sci-fi'. As well as rounding the shape, the swooshes give that little bit of extra movement and flow. In effect, it combines the precision of a digital theme with subtle 'artistic' touches.
One thing I haven't liked in dA's logos is the poor legibility of the A. I concentrated on making sure the design is legible, but not simple enough to make it boring or unoriginal.

The typography has been made with a customized serif font, and its design to follow the sleek, modern theme. the gap between the d and t also creates an ideal space for the mark to be placed, as shown on the mockup.

As you can see, a lot of thought and time has been put into this design. I hope you like it as much as I do ;)

Note: Updated the text and mockup.

One of the best designs i've seen so far, it's simple but powerful, and I think it's right up the alley in terms of the judges' requirements.

I think it's a bit unbalanced and too decorative to be picked by the judges.

This is a killer design, well, top right anyway. I really like the thickness on the top left though, but the curl in the A looks a bit squished compared to the top left.

liking the logo a lot. i think you have to change the font to a a less ';playful' font, that will blend with the logo.

I like the shape, especially the thin one on the top right.

But the typo looks rather poor.

Can't help it, but this is the finnish state railway company logo in my eyes.
But hey, the logo has lasted since 1922 so I think you got some strong design here. [link]

I prefer the thinner bottom right one, however I think the curve thing you've got going on could be a little more subtle. Great work though regardless

I think that the in-site design part of the picture points out some mistakes. Like the pixelization of the logo with text. However, this might also just be a little issue with a printscreen or a resized image. Nothing too big to worry about.
The image you put as a preview, now, THAT is some sleek looking design. I can seriously see that thing on the front page without anyone minding it. So all in all the design isn't bad, I think the with-text version just didn't look as good because of a resized image. Overall, very nice design! :D

Yes I mentioned in the description- because I skewed it in PS rather than illy, it came out pretty rubbish. I'm planning to go back to illy today and do the mockup properly :)

Thanks for the help, and I'm glad you like it!

Ah, I figured as much. Way to go then :D I'd also prefer the one where the D isn't filled up, but that's just personal I guess. I think it gives it a sleeker look. With the D filled it looks sort of "fat" (if that makes sense).
I hope you win! :D
