I’d have to agree with Tony — the last time they redesigned the logos for CS3 there were several complaints and a sizable uproar in the community. Why would they subject themselves to that again by releasing a meaningless logo when the “element” PS worked just fine?
I actually blogged about the whole logo mess some time ago. The post actually led to a senior-level designer at MetaDesign (who did the CS2 designs) to comment that they had nothing to do with the new icons:
Funny, Doug. I’m with Tony – loved the new CS3 element icons, can’t understand for the life of me why they’d backpedal so fast. The whole “jelly” look is on its way out, more subtle treatments are the way forward.
The new PS logo’s are horrible. I love the CS3 element logos… very clean, sophisticated, work well in print as lineart as well as with subtle shading on screen. Great “reason” behind the consistency, nice borrowing of classic, well known design (periodic chart). Looks great as an icon (since its square), works well as a favicon, makes the color representative of the product without even having to have the text…
The new logo… well, it just looks amateurish. Reminds me of the early web craze when people discovered bevel filters and drop shadows… like a “aqua button” tutorial gone awry (which is oddly Photoshop appropriate, but only in a satirical way).
I’m glad CS3 the app doesn’t actually use that logo… if it did, I would feel, well, kinda dirty every time it started up… honestly, a logo like that *bums* *me* *out*!
Do you guys know of any good logo design sites out there which provide affordable designing services? I’ve seen many sites but I’m still unsure of which one to choose from. Sites like LogoWorks, LogoDesignCreation.com, MyCustologo, etc are reputable but which ones do you guys reckon is good? Any other recommendations or suggestions?
