Talk:DK Publisher


I'm trying to figure out a way to make it clear DK publishes things like 'the complete guide to Wonder Woman', for example. They have done many guides to many comic book characters/teams. Lots42 (talk) 10:58, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Name change

Apparently Dorling Kindersley is now called DK so the article title needs to be changed to something like DK (publlsher) any objections anyone? Theroadislong (talk) 08:37, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Provide sources first. In some places on their website I see the Dorling Kindersley name still used. Perhaps they use both names. Blue Rasberry (talk) 11:17, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps User:BookCoverLover can provide these as they seem to have some connection to the company? Theroadislong (talk) 15:49, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
According to their "About Us" page, they have consolidated their branding as "DK". -- Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:38, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Replace the logo with the one here The publisher just underwent a brand redesign this month which includes a new logo. You can see the new branding on their website here and can read about it here as Pentagram worked on the new brand identity. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by Sara14785 (talk o contribs) 09:44, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

  • The logo must first be uploaded to resource along with the appurtenant use license before it may be added to the article. The COI editor may use the File Upload Wizard to accomplish this.
  • When this is completed, please return to this talk page along with the uploaded file's name and open a new edit request.
  • The COI editor is reminded of the need to sign all talk page posts using four tildes.

Request edit on 14 February 2020

The new logo has been updated, can someone please amend the reference to the last iteration of the logo - its time in use is listed as 1974-2020, when actually that iteration was active 2014-2020. [1]-- Preceding unsigned comment added by Sara14785 (talk o contribs) 14:26, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

 Done Theroadislong (talk) 14:58, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Also, would it be possible to add a line under 'History': In January 2020, DK worked with Pentagram to undergo a major brand redesign, which included a new logo and tagline. [2]-- Preceding unsigned comment added by Sara14785 (talk o contribs) 14:26, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Not done not really of interest to a encyclopedia. Theroadislong (talk) 14:58, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

The COI editor is reminded for a second time of the need to sign all talk page posts using four tildes. The COI editor is also reminded that if they receive, or expect to receive, compensation for any contribution they make, they must disclose their employer, client, and affiliation to comply with Wikipedia's terms of use and the policy on paid editing. Future edit requests which disregard these requirements risk not being responded to. Regards,  Spintendo  15:08, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Request edit on 17 February 2020

On this page, it states that the new logo is not protected by copyright and therefore in the public domain, which is incorrect. Please can this be changed to state that it is not in the public domain?

I want to state that I do not receive, or expect to receive, compensation for any contribution I make - which is why I am putting these on the talk page and am not editing directly.

Also, I did end my request with four tildes - not sure if this hasn't gone through?

seems to be public domain
@Sara14785: You are discussing File:DK_(2020).svg#Licensing
The image seems to not pass Commons:Commons:Threshold of originality, and therefore not eligible for copyright. This is what the license notes on the image say. On what basis do you dispute this? Everything seems correct to me. Blue Rasberry (talk) 17:54, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
@Sara14785: Thank you for adding your signature, it seems to be working now. As far as the image, Blue Rasperry is correct that the image -- because it only involves letters and shapes -- appears to be under the threshold for originality. However, questions that you may have about the correct licensing being added should ideally be placed on the talk page of the image file, rather than the talk page of this article. To do so, you will need to create that page, as one does not currently exist. I can't recall offhand if you, as a newer user, will be able to create that page on your own, so please advise if you run into difficulty doing so. Thank you!
