I love max 5 but hate the rice :(

and i’m a sucker for rounded clean-looking interfaces :) that make me a bad
person?

had to fight the urge to start the thread entitled " why i WILL be buying
max 5" :P

I like it. The old one was a bit lame…

And it’s probably a preview of the rounded corners we’ll have with Max 6…

woh were jumping right to max 6, wicked!

I gotta say, I love round edges, and I will kill anyone who likes square edges with my rounded scimitar.

but really this rice logo is kinda lame.. from a design standpoint, doesn’t really represent the brand, I honestly thought it was a joke when I first saw it but now that its still here after a few days I don’t know what to think.

Yeah, I don’t know what to say about the rice-shaped logo either… The apostrophe over powers the top line of the seven since they are practically the same weight, I didn’t know what I was looking at for a while either. I know, I know, everyone is a critic, but hopefully there is room for constructive criticism.

Is it finalized as a new logo? Or is it just a stab at something different?

And yes, rounded corners… I don’t know why but they make me happy.

I think all corners should be in the shape of big pink pigs…..anyone with me?
They could be rice eating pigs, win win situation :)

ok yes critique:

looks like a pile of rice

would make a great logo for rice company

do you sell rice? no? ok.

hmmmm

well

um

what do you make?

software, oh cutting edge media programming languages, ok..

why not a little number box with the arrow and 74? or something that looks like an object box just slightly? better yet [cycling]—[>74]

maybe its too obvious… but something about the gestalt that it takes my brain to make that pile of rice into a 74 hurts my head.


November 15, 2007 | 8:30 am

hey cycling 74 guys. i don’t mean to make waves but……how long are you
going to keep it like that? errr……it’s just not cool. and it doesn’t
look good :( sorry if i’ve hurt feelings by saying that….but really. don’t
keep it….i mean…what’s it for?

I personally am a fan of vector graphics and all shapes of corners but feel that this new logo is poorly designed. At least make the apostrophe smaller than the numbers.

Also, I always thought it was amazingly cool that the company name and media came from the 1974 Schwinn bicycle catalog. It made the company seem so wacky, cool, and different from web2.0 company number 7398WX4B.


November 15, 2007 | 10:07 am

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

omg just a little more of this and I’ll fall madly in love with rounded corners.

i seriously thought that the rice thing was some kind of mistake, is that the new c74 logo? It is really bad methinks, and I am squarely on the anti-rounded corners team in v5 for the record.


November 15, 2007 | 9:15 pm

after looking at it for a while i see the ’74. ouch.

yes in amounts of 74 per pack. And the next plug-in collection will be
based on rice synthesis and will be called Basmati…
