So obviously the guernsey change is going to be a part of our 10 year anniversary next year? Can't believe we've been in the AFL for 9 years already...
And would believe the whole fortunes of our football club came down to one Brent Macaffer tackle

Some clowns potting the Carlton jumper when it's simultaneously the most unique and instantly recognisable jumper in the entire competition o_O

You could do a lot worse than following that example.

Imagine a Red jumper with a gold GCFC logo?

Maybe take some inspiration from the old Fitzroy jumpers?
They're even the right colours and it would immediately promote a greater sense of legitimacy for the club amongst all footy fans.

As it stands I'm happy with how the jumpers currently look, but really don't want to see it changed to some generic striped or sash uniform.

I've been thinking about this idea too, the monogram logo, whether it be large and on the front or small and on the back of the neck line in a more complimentary role. Creating a 4 letter monogram is tough though!

It's 4 letters, but it's so much easier that G and the 2 Cs are so similar so they can go around eachother in the logo. It's the F that throws things off, you can only put that in the middle.

personally Im not keen on "borrowing" the fitzroy design but.... It would be a huge kick in the balls to Brisbane and would love to stir that rivalry pot.

Why would you want to be like anyone else? Be original, which by the way, I think you are now. I like your jumper and really cant see a need to change it tbh..

Attached is what I've been working on this morning, having 3 similar shapes (GCC) has been the toughest part because it leaves very little room for the F. Although the font I'm using plays a role in that. I think club monograms look best when they're in an old-style, ornate serif font. Still searching for other typefaces that may work too.

I reckon the following design principles create a better look:

1. Logo has to be rejigged, looks out of place for the AFL.
2. Red and gold are perfectly fine as a colour scheme, drawing inspiration from surf lifesavers as stated back at the club launch. Blue complicates things.
3. Could look more like the lifesavers they're influenced by.
4. Since it's the GOLD Coast, it's fitting if the primary colour is gold/yellow.
5. Simple is better, although I'm not a fan of the side panels.

With that in mind, I had a go based off LeeARM 's excellent logo.

In addition, I tried out a design with thin stripes to each side, a little bit reminiscent of Collingwood's suspenders guernsey.

Really not a fan of the all yellow look.

it looks alright on the african american girls with the darker skin but the white girls... does not suit.
