i got a new badge
With the launch of the new THFC
badge, our readers give their views on the
new design ...
if you haven't seen it, click here. Then give us your opinion.
Has anyone come out and said they really like the new badge ?? There is only one here who definitely likes it !
I think that there is little to commend it as a design and how Daniel Levy comes up with it supposedly "expressing our ambitions", I don't know. Does it have a speech bubble coming out of it's mouth saying "Get us into Europe Martin" ??
I was hoping for something a bit more unique rather than making it something resembling that bird that they stick onto a concrete orb in the Thomson advert in the programme.
Don't mind the new badge really, just think we might as well have looked at the top of the Shelf and West stands as we have a perfectly good cockerel and ball symbol there. Why not use that, save on paying someone to come up with a new/retro thingy.
Haven't seen the new kit yet but I suppose Spurs in their infinite wisdom will say that if you don't like it don't worry we'll change it next year ... which they will.
I'm not sure why everyone's getting so
het-up, I think it's a good design with some nice touches, it stays true
to our history and previous badges - look how far the designers of the
Gooners took their badge and what did they end up with ? A Sunday league
clip art design that will date incredibly quickly where as ours will
still look fresh in 20 years. Also they lost their balls and we've
gained ours back !
By the way - I'm a graphic designer so I have the eye!
What I want to know is how much did the club pay some marketing guru to come up with what is nothing more than a variation on a theme. Cut out all the corporate baloney Levy. What we want is some success to go with all these changes to show us they are for the better.
The money shelled out to some arty-farty medja type could probably have bought us a new player !!
Another way of getting us to spend our money ! What was the print run on the "limited edition" (new badge) silver programme ?
The answer is, until it sold out!
agree with East Stan !
I was a bit disappointed when I first saw the new badge, but no doubt I will get to like it. I don't suppose it matters that much what it looks like as long as the team continue to perform the way they have been (Leicester away not included).
The whole dumbing down of the motto and the corporate claptrap about how the new badge links with the club's tradition and the fact that Daniel Levy "feel(s) that reflects the youth and dynamism of the Club, as well as expressing our ambitions and aspirations" and "We have sought to reflect our traditions as well as our reputation for style" really gets my goat.
It's a badge for goodness sake !!
Tradition would be keeping the Latin motto and some semblance of honour about why the change is being made in the first place.
There is a slim-ness about it, which some of the other cockerels haven't had.
Will Chirpy feel jealous ?

I think the new crest has a real retro look about it. It harks back to the Glory Days, which, with any luck, are about to return to WHL.
My first thought was meep-meep ... we've got a Road Runner.
I think it needs toughening up a little.
I don't like it.
I quite like it.
I was just wondering what people think of the new badge ? Me and my mate think the clubs actually come up trumps.
I quite like the new badge and crest as released to the public today. It is simple in line, uncluttered, yet states a lot.
