lol.
I find the style pleasant, but yeh it is slightly crap.

Must admit, I enjoyed the blue and grey theme here for a while. It seemd to attract different discussions and another kind of member.

You sure on that ID Thele?, don't Brugmansia flowers hang down...

I prefered the pebbles but am sure it will grow on me.

Ah, Dubosia crapwoodii. My mistake. I wondered why the brug was upside down.
Seriously though, everything else is great. But that flower is crap.
I LOVE YOU!!

Well, I thought it was Datura. I think the flower is just fine, but I don't like the new colour scheme there are several types of brown which is cool but the gunmetal blue around the posts is wronging my brain a lot. Still better than the ultra blueness of before.

the flower is a stylised pituri flower. it is replacing the pebbles as the anchor to australia's most intriguing ritual plant region.

I like it. Liked the pebbles as well but that logo was looking a bit dated.

yeah, I know, and I'm not bothered by it.
I like minimalism, so when I saw this design I was very much attracted to it, but I also knew it wouldn't suit everyone here. I think it goes well with the modern minimalistic look of the rest of the forum.

what, and you don't think the designer would take your comment personal?
There are ways to say you don't like the design without being so mean.

For all you know, all I may have meant with my comment is that you are not a suitable person to judge minimalism - some people just don't get the concept of minimalism. But maybe that's not all I meant, so read into it what you like.

I really like the new logo. It has that DMT-realm angular aesthetic that a lot of "visionary" art has lately. Good call, Torsten.


But, no. It's not minimalism. Not in the traditional Modernist sense of the term. While reductive, it's still representational. This is minimalism:

Love youse all.

The best art is never appreciated until sometime after the artists death
