DC Comics Got A New Logo

On May 9th, DC Comics unveiled their new logo to the comic world. I’m not too much a fan of comics although I grew up reading quite abit but I much prefer the older version. It was designed in 1976 by Milton Glaser - the same guy who brought us the famous “I heart NY” logo.

What’s interesting is the interview with Richard Burning, VP and Creative Director of DC Comics on the creative process behind the logo. Although the “DC” looks like it’s going to be eaten up by the oval which looks like Marvel’s shield for Captain America, the logo does satisfy what DC wanted in their new logo. I don’t know, maybe the logo will grow onto me, especially with all the hype around Batman Begins.

Think somewhere along the way, Macromedia stopped caring about Fontographer. They didn’t even make it run properly on native OSX, you have to use classic mode. And from what I know, that is just plain painful.

Fontographer was HORRID. I’m sure you remember THE STRESS we had when we did Kin Type for Phek Gek.
