Much has been said about the new “interactive” look of DC’s logo redesign.
The reaction seems to be split, with comics fans not particularly jazzed about it, but those in the marketing and design industries thinking that it’s pretty great. I don’t know if those folks are really the target demo, but I can see their point.
For my part, I have to say that I think it’s kinda… plain. It doesn’t really say to me what DC is all about on the comics front. Where I think it works well is in the “DC Entertainment” side of the operation. So from that perspective I can understand a corporation wanting to brand their products based on the multi-billion dollar wing of their company instead of the million-dollar comics side.
But when I look at it on that comics side… it’s really boring.
However, maybe the “variant” logos will appeal to collectors.
