We all know how awesome the old Eagles logo is. If they are ever to get a rebrand, I'm sure I'm not alone in saying I want it to come back. But at the same time, the font is very old school. It's unlikely you'd see it used in any new designs or rebrands. However, it lives on in the strangest of places, worldwide...

I first started sending "#EaglesFontWatch" snaps to a few mates last year as a bit of a joke but then I started to realise that it is still somewhat semi-widespread. I went out of my way to take photos of some sightings when I was over in Europe last year. So this thread is to chronicle sightings of the classic Eagles font, Dynamo.

I found this somewhere in Croatia last year. I think it was Split.

My old man has a kneel mat in the garage manufactured by a company called "Pro-Lift" who use the rare sentence case version of Dynamo



And there is a produce manufacturer called Grapeland who use an all-caps Dynamo on their grape boxes but I've always forgotten to take a picture when they come in and it's only ever rarely.

Please, keep the #EaglesFontWatch streak going and upload your picture whenever you see it in the wild (do any of you live near a Bing Lee store??) Computer images / pics found on Google don't count as it's way too easy.

¡Viva la Revolución!

That's a really cool poster there, the Ambar one. Pity the club isn't.

I never really clocked Yakka either – big in WA at the time evidently!

Spotted this waling along Swanston St in the Melbourne CBD last night.

I've also spotted two great examples of Marbold, the classic VFL shield logo font, in and near my work just recently.
