I've been active with Dash for quite a while now, but this is my first post in this forum. This is a really important issue and I need to say my part.
The O&M logo fails on all fronts.
The DD is nothing but a tired and lazy design that has been used hundreds of times. Anyone remember that terrible Daredevil movie?
The font is awkward and in no way represents Dash or cryptocurrency.
The DD doesn't make sense until it's explained. To everyone not in the know, they're going to wonder what the second D stands for, and when they find out, they won't care. Why would O&M think that regular people would care about Dash's second layer? Did they do any actual proper research?
The color scheme looks like they're targeting entitled millennial otherkin, not adults or the people who actually use and need Dash. Dash is a serious business, not some trendy chat app. We don't need to look "sharpy". In places like Venezuela, people's lives are coming to depend on Dash and cryptocurrency. This is insulting to their struggle.
The DD doesn't scale at all. It's entirely illegible as a small avatar, it just looks like a scribble.
It doesn't offer any link to Dash's history, it's just some new logo some marketing company came up with.
Lastly, it's just plain ugly. It looks like it was designed with a free logo generator.
Dash is one of the most innovative and disruptive entities in human history. Never before has there been a decentralized autonomous organization. We are cutting edge. We are game changers. We are revolutionary. We need a logo that represents that. What did O&M give us? A tired and rehashed logo dressed in 1980's colors that doesn't make any sense until explained. Complete and utter failure.
This is the best post in this thread so far. THANK YOU!!
The only way to keep the current logo will be to vote NO on both alternatives. This feels too rushed. Seven days until this cycles voting deadline and it has not yet been posted, at least not on dashvotetracker.com.
Please vote NO and NO.
