This is a good logo.

The colours are good. Bold and correct for their original logos.

The borders are mismatched, so the foss logo border is wider. They'd look better if they were the same.

Some of the curves in the S's look a bit square. This could be that the original logos have these faults and the borders bring them to the fore.

The border lines in the S's are also too close together. A border on the outside of the shape would be better, but widening the corves a little in key places would work well.

The line miter where the two S's join isn't as sharp as it needs to be. It should be increased and adjusted so it rests at a point in that join.

Over all it's well composed. The O fits well in the gap and the overlap on the O and first S is good.

The Sickert Clause
Walter Sickert of the Army of Broken Toys, delivering non-broken toys in this version to everyone who preys to the saviour of squidmas.

This piece uses a PD original artwork for the background and was made using Gimp 2.8 on Ubuntu 14.04 with a Wacom I3. Figure and rabbit are the new parts plus all the background cloning to remove the real santa and reindeer.

deviantArt's new logo is really weird to me. Of course it's easy for me to poke fun at it, (and I have). But it hardly seems like any time at all since they changed over from their old logo. This new one doesn't fill me with joy, boldness or dread... just amusement.

There is another interesting technical point about the new logo: It's svg. Did you notice? A web image format deviantArt doesn't support you actually submitting is used for their logo. (It's embedded svg too)

Oh well. If you're going to hire designers full time, at some point they'll get board and start designing new logos for your company. Rule 14 in my new book "How to keep techs/Husbandry of Internet Natives": Always have some art supplies on hand to feed your tame designers.
