• Effective October 15th, all Youtube content threads that are posted within the creative media section will be subjected to being moderated before being displayed. Over the past year we've noticed lots of new members and a few old members that come here to advertise (obviously here since we're the largest Kingdom Hearts fan base community why wouldn't you) their Channel to promote new subscribers, likes, and displaying their media. However there is a huge difference between creative constructive media criticism, and borderline advertisement. So please, before you post here, understand how the creative media section works, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please reach out, we always like to hear ideas. Few might not like this idea, but it does help keep my section stay organized and not crazy looking, I would like to keep the traditional platform of what the section main purpose is for. It's to help build new and old artistry to an entire whole level.



    Here's how it will work :

    • If you post a thread within the creative media section that is youtube content related to your channel, it will be moved to the "Creative Media Youtube Showing Content thread", a sticky'd thread where members can all over discuss and see everyones content all at once rather than making it self promoting, by making your own thread, if you get my drift. The whole idea behind this is to get members involved in everyones media, and the purpose is to showcase your works, but not self advertisement right? Its all about the constructive criticism and giving everyone the same feedback and layout of how display and showcasing video media should look like.

    • If you have already posted a thread regarding your youtube content, you will not be affected by this change and your thread will be untouched and you can continue to post and discuss accordingly with your peers.


    Social Media Advertisement Content :​

    Now I know lots of new members (out of the blue suddenly became youtube friendly, you're not slick) be-aware that you cannot use the Creative Media section as a gateway to advertise your media without wanting, giving and receiving criticism from your forum family. The idea behind the Creative Media is to help showcase and help improve everyones work or arts, whether it's digital, traditional, etc. Not to promote then leave, it's not fair to the community.

  • Spoiler tag your spoilers, please. That includes all unknown content from the DLC that was not shown in trailers or discussed in pre-release interviews.

Tried my hand at this; didn't want to do too much with it, but I knew that I wanted 'illustrated' to be more human than 'digital media'.

dmi logo.psd

That's the PSD, I tried saving a GIF or JPEG of the file but they look like shit (and, with the transparent background, would be practically invisible on the Clown College skin).

Feel free to change, comment, rape, whatever.

I'm taking a stab at it now. But I'm loving the simplicity.

Thanks guys. I was only working with the default fonts, so if you guys have any custom ones that you prefer or something like that, just send over the PSD so everyone can take a look at it.

Use Clown College so I made a version that I could see, and something would hopefully pop.

I like the green.
It looks good doesn't it? I loved the font so much that I didn't want to change, I just felt that it would be nice with some softer colours(red and black is a good combo though, and you did good, I have just had those colours around me for so long that I don't feel them anymore.)

Have you looked at it against clown college? It really looks good, nice thing about the green is that it looks just as good up aginst the black.

I use Clown College, lol. Stampy makes me want to hurt myself.

Edit: I would kind of like to do something where the lines of the words intersect (it does this naturally, a little bit, with the 'l' and 'm') to give it a bit more of a 'connected' feel.

I'll work on it some more in the morning, but if someone throws something like that together it'd be great.

Red is more in your face/urgent. Makes you pay attention to the logo.

I understand that. I just don't like red and black anymore. There were my old school colours, so I am done with them.

I understand that. But you should focus more on the purpose/function of the logo rather than what you like or don't like.

It's fine to use green but what is your purpose behind it?

also the red that nate used is going to go a lot easier with different colors than that shade of green, init

Because I like green? Is there really need to be a reason? I just played with it and did what I thought looked good to me, in all honesty I don't really care what the logo is, just as long as DMI is successful, and it betters the Digital Media section.

Cheesy as it sounds, could we try doing something with wrapping the I to the contours of the a and leaving it green, then having both Ls there too to kind of make it look like "all" to signify the inclusion of everyone?

Well in order to do that you have to care what the logo is.

As of now it's not very functional, that white only works against a dark background and I doubt black with that tint of green will look as good. I like the contrast between type faces but I feel they should interact more like Callum suggested (i.e. have letters overlap/underlap each other).

Going to mess around with some vectoring and try to make a custom typeface; I like Shinkiro's idea.

Red won.

Edit: and given my limited knowledge with CS4 and my trackpad, I wasn't able to make the logo as I'd originally wanted. Sorry guys.
