I understand the thread is new and may experience growth/interest challenges. I also understand that this is a public forum where views and opinions can be openly discussed. However, I don't understand why we as a community have...degraded, in a sense, to mock other artist's work.
So far, in the thread, I haevn't seen any good analytical and "inspiring" review of the work presented. It's really cheap jokes and a sarcastic approach to one person's opinion. Do we really need to devote an entire thread to such a show?
Most designers, especially those specializing in Logos/Branding, know of Tony Spaeth. His wonderful site, Identity Works is a model for great criticism and education. He writes short reviews that showcase identities with both their pros and cons.
If we were to look at Tony Spaeth's site as an example, we could say that all posts in Designs That Suck should include the following:
- Date of the Work
- Origin of the Work (artist, owner, or simply 'unknown')
- Description of the Work
- Pros of the Work
- Cons of the Work
- Reason for both Pros and Cons
- Suggestions for Change
- Tips for Implementation (if you were to encounter this type of client try doing a, b, and c)
