It only makes sense. After all, it’s been almost 10 months since the last rebranding. It’s about time. Right out of the blue (heh heh): it’s the new logo for the Photoshop “family” of applications.
Let’s put on our scrutinizing academic design goggles for a second and look at the significance of this design.
- It’s a P. As in Photoshop.
- It’s got a hole in it.
- It could be a single quotation mark.
- It’s a speech bubble!
- If you tilt your head sideways to the left, it’s a silhuette of a man yelling out loud.
- It’s glassy and in 3D.
The previous logo (which I assume was the icon-design for the CS3 package) was Ps. There’s definately some simplification going on here. P. Say that out loud. It’s something we all need (to) once in a while.
Insert joke here.
Meaning “we started the sentence, you finish it”?
I can hear it now: “FUCK! IT CRASHED!”
Meaning “this was made with Photoshop filters”. Where’s the lensflare?
