Otakumouse 2013 Rebranding

Lately, I’ve been having some issues with my current logo (particularly the logo type) specially when it comes to its “uniqueness”. It’s also my fault as the “designer” since I really didn’t spend too much time in making it “unique”. What I did is I just used one of my favorite font that I’ve been using for years and just directly typed the “Otakumouse” name on it which is really a bad design practice. (And yep, I’m a designer :P).

Over the course of 3 months, I discovered 5 websites using the same font. The funny thing about that discovery is 2 of them are porn sites lols. If you’re wondering what the font is, it’s called “Slant” and it’s been around for years. I told myself at first that “Nah, it’s ok…” but then even Danny Choo noticed that the font I used was similar to the font used in the very popular site, Tokyo Otaku Mode.

That’s the time I decided to re-create and re-brand my logo from scratch and I made sure that it’s unique in every way. Hope you like the new look :)
