Opinion

Since itโ€™s Friday, I figured something more lighthearted would be welcome. Iโ€™ll start by saying that I dislike dancing and I do not enjoy the awkward social interaction that Zoom makes possible โ€” Iโ€™m sorry, deep inside (or maybe not so deep) Iโ€™m a curmudgeon โ€” so this Distance Disco thing would basically be one version of hell for me. Nonetheless, the energy, looseness, and lack of pretentiousness of this identity is contagious. Itโ€™s not great by most standards, itโ€™s just fun. The wordmark is a little awkward but the filled-in โ€œDโ€s and โ€œOโ€ look like lights at a nightclub and the flashing colors make it feel like you are there. The character is super weird with a 16:9 head and coffee-stirrer-sticks for legs but the thing can dance โ€” waaaay better than me. If I had one formal critique it would be the rounded corners of the โ€œDโ€s as the eyes; everything else is so angular that they stand out oddly. I know Distance Disco is not going to be making any large media buys to justify out of home advertising renders but that last image makes me, almost, want to dance.
