Well, Quark has once again redesigned their logo, and again, it reminds me of another logo. For some reason the subtle bevel and drop shadows remind me of the Ubisoft logo. Maybe all of that gaming is going to my head, or maybe there really is a similarity.
From Digg.com: In September 2005, trumpets blared and banners waved as Quark unveiled a new logo. That fanfare quickly trailed off into a sputtering silence as critics across the world blasted the logo for its similarity to many others.
Either way, this new logo, in my opinion, is a lot better than their previous designs, and I’m glad to see that they’ve completely left behind their original logo. I think this is a good change for Quark and it looks like something that I’d enjoy seeing on their products. Not to mention it’d make a sweet favicon.
But their is one problem I’ve noticed, what’s up with the missing pixel in the top left corner? I know it’s not just me that’s noticed this, as other viewers have pointed out the same thing. What’s going on Quark? Even when they manage to come up with a nice, clean, new design they screw that up too.
Hopefully they’ll take note of the missing pixel and fix it before it goes up on their site, and their products as well.
Lesson Learned: Do a comprehensive search before working on any piece of digital work, or face the wrath of a million bloggers pointing out similarities to past works.
