What's the verdict?
>>412237Bottom one.>has soul>darker = easier on the eyes>mascot looks cuter, less robotic>font still expresses what it needs to
>>412237i hate their new font on the logothey hopped on to the zoomer trend of stretched fonts, but yeah okay zoomers use it the mostbut the 'i' makes me think that 5 year olds use it
I like the new icon and color, but the font looks absolutely horrific. I think it's alright to get rid of the edgy D, but it really doesn't need to be vertically squished the way it is. Would look much better if it weren't.
the logo is fine, but there's a few severe problems with this redesignthe font is horribly stretched (feels like this did this just to match the width of the old logo), is very badly hinted (or not hinted at all), making it wobble all over the place, has incredibly ugly ink traps, and just generally doesn't fit the rest of the UIfurthermore, the new blue color doesn't really work with the slate grey UI the app has, it works on light theme but on the default dark theme the contrast is worryingly badon top of that, they're removing the "chat bubble"-like outline from the logo, which makes it look like just a gaming app or something, as opposed to "chat for gamers" which is what it was, makes no sense either since discord was getting rid of gaming?finally, their decision to have like, 5 different "accent" colors is going to make the UI a total mess
>>412239>has soulgo fuck yourself
>>412237Getting rid of the little notches in the shoulder buttons of the logo was a good idea imo. The rest not so much
>>412259what the fuck is their logo a controller holy shit
>>412261A smiling controller at that.
I think the symbol works better if their plan is to have a more "gamer" image. But I have no idea if that was the plan.The new font is awful. I have no idea what they were going for. I honestly think the old font with some minor adjustments would have worked way better with the new symbol. Also what the fuck is that "d"? At some point it kinda looks like "cl"
>>412262I legitimately thought it was a frog or something
>>412264They were going for something friendlier since it feels like discord is used for a lot more than gaming now. Oculus uses a similar font, but it's much better looking there.
who the fuck came up with this? it's discora now
pretty bad but i hate the retards in their comments that think they can do better
>>412277What a fucking faggot
>>412237Bottom one would cause more discord because it's shit so it kinda works by being shit.
>>412237Looks like shit and they know it. People have been getting their posts erased everywhere. Their Youtube livestream had moderators out in full force erasing comments.
>>412237the font looks like its stretched. why did they take the top line away from the controller? the only decent thing is the colour change
>>412253i just checked, the font is literally not hinted at allwhat, did the foundry think "eh we don't need that"? did discord remove them???autohinting is ez pz nowadays too wtf
>>412239>>412258For me the only thing close to “soul” the rebrand has is the more saturated blurple color they’ve been using
>>412237icon is better but font is worse
>>412237fixed the logo
>>412237I've noticed that modern graphic design is getting bolder/darker and straying away from 2010's minimalism.
>>412253didnt know osk browsed /gd/
>>412264>I think the symbol works better if their plan is to have a more "gamer" image. But I have no idea if that was the plan.its the opposite, they are trying to be a platform for everyone not just gamers
>>412332what's hinting mean?
>>412355hinting is when you add some data to fonts that essentially tell the system where the important parts of a font are, like large horizontal/vertical lines etc. it allows the system to render those elements far more crisply, making the font nicer to readon top of that, when a font is badly hinted or not hinted at all, you may run into cases where character heights become wobbly, like with discord heremost font programs have very good autohinting tools that can either create complex hints around all your characters, or simply place hints at the top and bottom of the characters to ensure they dont wobble in height (the bare minimum)
>>412253I was going to say the lack of hinting here may be intentional to make it look more "fun" and "discordant", but yes it's too subtle and to consistent throughout.
discord typography looking like dafont page 75
>>412277I hate the fact that got so many likes... Reminds me of when oculus changed their logo and a bunch of people decided they were designers in a matter of seconds. Yes, the new logo is kinda boring, but the old one is just so fucking bad.
>>412277That looks so fucking bad lol
>>412360if you do that though, why not just go for a really discordant font rather than subtle fuckery?
>>412348oh god i didn't even think of that, discord staff really are groomers huh
>>412386I mean discord is literally tranny ground zero, so yes.
>>412237I like the new one more.
I think it looks great.
>>412466This is how it should've been.
remember when this had cool game art, or later when it had an animated black hole thing
>>412486also wait, this is hiding the custom server invite background, which is a paid nitro boost feature
>>412492I'm not sure if I've said this before, but the blurple colour could still use a bit of desat. Fix that and you might be on to something.
>>412239>>412264>>412352>Wants more mature, less gamer-y look>Adds saturation, makes edgier logo that looks more like a controllerPick one retards
>>412237logo is better, font is worse
>>412237>here's your discord redesign brohonestly the logo is a whole lot better, and I can chalk up my dislike for the font to personal preference, but I absolutely HATE what they did with the palette, the "new blurple" is being used on all buttons and notifications in the app and it's giving me an eye strain that I haven't felt in the 4-ish years I've been using it, it's very jarring
>>412237Not sperging but the bottom one's font is so bad that it makes me angry. I hate the way that i looks. All of the rest of the letters have a line that runs through them except for the i. Don't like it at all.
wanted to go to bed but i had to do it to em
>>412237I don't mind this change. It still for the most part looks the same. The font isn't one I like, but it's fine. I dislike that I something major as well as other fonts that do that uneven shit.I would have liked to at least see the ear dividing line still there. They could have done it simply by adding a circle at the top left and right of the ear to define the cut-off point if they want to do that whole geometry-based definition of the logo.
>>412492The 2EDGY4ME font had to go.
>>412525this is very nice except you should schooch the ord in a bit
>>412239fuck off tranny, you are an absolute dumb cunt if you think any of this
>>412237looks like SHIT. weird, squashed look and completely unbalanced with the icon
>>412569If you think he’s wrong, then you’re mentally unstable.
>>412561Thanks, that's definitely true. I also kept looking at it and thinking that I'm not sure I like that the first D gets an outline but nothing else in the picture has an outline. Still, had fun.
>>412593this looks really good
>>412593A little plain, but it's no dealbreaker.
>>412265I thought it was Mickey Mouse's pants.
>>412237Literally the worst font on the entire planet. Even comic sand would have looked better.
>>412237that new shade of blue literally burns my fucking eyeballs?
After seeing their article and the showcase about the redesign, I think everything besides the logo looks pretty cool except some details (like the color saturation and small details in some letters). The main problem it's the icon+wordmark combination, and the fact that the font doesn't work at all at small sizes. Look at this. You might dislike it, but it works with the zommer and playful vibe. But look at the logo, it looks so out of place with everything else.
>>412800this looks like ikea man wtf u on
>>412800zoomer here to state that I fucking hate the redesign. The logo itself is fine but the typeface and new blurple make me want to carve my eyes out.
>>412262Holy shit I never saw the smile
>>412507I don't know what about the new logo looks edgier to you senpai.
>>412800>>412809Another zoomer chiming in to say that image's colours and font make my eyes hurt.But in all fairness, zoomers who spend time on 4chan aren't the intended demographic here.
>>412593this is on it's way, the spacing between the brandmark and type is a little chunky tho. tad awkward.
>>412800the yellow and blue look nicer than their oversat blurple tbfthe font is still dogshit thoughthere are plenty of 'fun, friendly' typefaces that are much more readable, even just for headline text
>>412812>what looks edgier?The edges.More boxy edges with steeper angles and reduced smile. More pixel-y, more gamer-y. Exact opposite of what they say their goal was.Enjoy my shitty wacom penmanship.
are you really that retarded thinking that you can just get rid of the long shadow effect and think is the same style so nothing should be changed? not surprised this blind chickens are hating the font
>>412237I prefer the new space invader thing or w/e the fuck it's meant to be, and I never liked the old font, but the new one looks like LiKe SoMeOnE tYpInG lIkE tHiS
>>412814yea dude ur one of those cool unique zoomers who goes on underground websites no way this was marketed towards u
Hello everyone! I'm trying to make a video game called Sandia but i need some graphic designer that know a bit drawing pixel,If anyone is interested contact me on discord : Darek#9513
What the fuck is up with these companies simplifying their fucking logos?
>>412560How is it edgy? Even then, what's wrong with something having an edge? Why replace it with something so plain and unappealing?
>>412849what do you mean it looks edgier, if i didnt know any better id say you were the one to originally propose the idea of changing the logo in the first place
>>412885The normies have noticed.They're calling it "oversimplified logos" now.
I think the force font with a shadow actually works pretty well for a logo. Maybe not as good as the original but better than the new font imo
The logo is better, but the font is trash . They could've picked a better colour, but I don't really care that much. However I absolutely loathe their attempt at the contemporary clip art aesthetic, though - they took a shitty art style and somehow managed to make it worse.
>>413105>habbo hotel discord
>>412237cut off your penisbecome trans
>>412237Bottom would be better if it wasn't for the font.
>>412237logo is ok but the 2009 facebook + club penguin font mashup kills it
>>412525You should have the "handle" overlap the orb joystick on the bottom-rounding it off of course. As it is it contrasts with the implied perspective of the other shapes.
>>412519needs more outer glow, but you're on to something.
>>413550Lol, this is a correct suggestion. I'd been staring at it for like two weeks with my smooth brain going "Why does this look wrong?"
>>412237The logo is an improvement (not by much), but the wordmark is a downgrade. They should have found a way to make the existing typeface more playful, rather than jump straight to Nickelodeon type bullshit.Do we know who made this or was it an internal design team?
Discord being one of the leading child-grooming, incest, zoophilia and gaming social networks, choice of the font (or it's derivative) has a spiritually inheritant quality to it.
>>412253>ink trapswhy does this matter for digital materials?
>>413645I actually became sick to my stomach when I first learned about this dude. Absolutely depraved. His typography is nice though :)
It was kind of bad in the first place, now it's aggressively bad.
>>413645>Discord being one of the leading child-grooming, incest, zoophilia and gaming social networksIsn't that just called the United Kingdom ?
I really wouldn't know, but the changes done here seem like they were done by someone who wanted discord to forcefully branch out:>simplified logo with symmetry so it's easier to draw it from memory>saturated color to stand out in advertising>Generic fonti might be wrong but I feel like I'm reading tips from my Professor's handbook on graphic design, when he was going over putting vector logos on small prints like business cards to make it recognizable, though I still think the old font would have served that purpose better?
>>412593this was exactly how my redesign looked too
>>412237both are shit
>>412237Bottom logo and color scheme, top font.
>>413659I think that's the point. it has ugly ink-trap-looking line variations for no reason.
>>412865"underground websites," bro this place is dead.And if you think they'd market it towards my small ass demographic out of any other thriving and less controversial market out there, I'd say you're fucking mental.
>>413645...I don't get the incest part. You don't need Discord to fuck your siblings.
>>413901>has not seen discord screenshots where tranner claims to feed estrogen to his little brother (and other tranners talk about getting kids invited)but i am sure it's a joke haha
>>412237Old font was better in every possible way. The way the color has been changed to a more bright blue-purple makes it feel obnoxious and annoying. The "controller" has already been simple, so there was absolutely no reason to simplify it further.
>>412277Nintendo hire this man
>>413645>child-grooming, incest, zoophilia and gamingI lol'd
>>412237'old better' fags dont want to admit that the new font is more dynamic and has more soul than the old onethe logo they simplified to shit though, it kinda reminds me of those nintendo switch cardboard things.
>>414113The old font wasn't good, but they failed twice. At least the mascot is much better
>>412528i'm on the line with corporate, we have a winner
>>413645I use discord, but that font is trash
>>412237Data mining site
>>412237the bottom one looks like a children' toy brand
Jesus Christ, it's spreading...
>>414682You mean you haven't noticed that before?
