Yet nothing on the logo or slogan refers to 150?Nice mention of wharves and pylons by a couple of legends.
This is from the clubs Logo Q&A. Wonder if that will change. We're not being bullshited to, are we?
Answering some frequently asked questions about Port Adelaide's 150th anniversary logo.www.portadelaidefc.com.au
Will this logo be permanent?
The intent is for this to be a commemorative 150th anniversary logo to be used in 2020 only
You can't put 150 on a shield and replace all your other signage, stationery, business cards and merchandise if you're a cash-strapped footy club and actuslly intend to use it beyond one yearYet nothing on the logo or slogan refers to 150?
unless I’m missing something?
Jeeze the 1870 looks worse every time I see it, all aspects are just laughably bad (font, size, placement). I’d leave it out altogether but your effort already looks heaps better. I like how the square is a bit smaller too making the monogram more prominent.Was thinking about how annoying the 1870 being a total afterthought is. Tried to integrate it better and spent more than zero seconds thinking about the typography. Ended up creating a whole redo of the logo with shape edges, thicker lines and matching line weights.
What if the 1870 was in the panel but underneath the PA? If the panel was rectangular the increased height might help to distinguish it from the Freo logo a little.Was thinking about how annoying the 1870 being a total afterthought is.

From what I recall from Sunday, you can buy the cans in a 4 pack, so 4 x 4 makes sense compared to 4 x 6........
She was told their allocation was two cartons so she got one held when they came in. Turns out they are only 16 packs and now I have half of the Port Lincoln allocation waiting for me when I get home.
I don’t think there will be much available outside of Adelaide.
If anyone else wants a carton in Lincoln, might pay to get down to Lincoln Cellars ASAP.

Most 'craft' breweries do that as it is the only way to keep the case price under the $100 barrier.Wind Power your post made me look at their products. 4 of their beers you buy as a 4 can pack and 16 can slab, and 4 other beers as a 6 can pack and 24 can slab. One beer is out of stock and no details, and they also market a mixed beers 24 can slab. I've never seen that before for beers.
Was going to post this Sunday night but forgot. This is the logo on the lectern that Timmy G, Koch and KT spoke from on Sunday at the launch.
With an all black background I reckon it looks pretty good. The teal is more blue than teal and against a lot of black it sits well. And no its not the lighting effecting my camera/picture, it was blue when I took this a metre or so away from the lectern.
And it looked a lot better than on the beer can photo that Chokito put on here Saturday. The shiny glare of that photo and the greener teal didn't look as good as it did on the lectern. Also the logo on the lectern looked better than when I had the beer can in my hand on Sunday and could see the logo on there.
I don't think it will sit as well against our white, silver or teal jumper and especially if placed over the teal and white chevrons where the blue is against those two colours. Or for the 150th anniversary baby blue and white hooped jumper. It looked good against the all black background of the top right of the Maggies jumper. They need to introduce a black border around the blue when its not sitting on a black background IMO.

I can't find decent close up photos of the logo on the 3 jumpers worn but you can see with the projection onto Hart's Mill building, the blue against a non black background doesn't come up as good as above.

Makes sense except I was sure I saw a picture somewhere after the launch that showed a full 24 can sized carton wiith the full logo on it.From what I recall from Sunday, you can buy the cans in a 4 pack, so 4 x 4 makes sense compared to 4 x 6.
Its there on the PB, but you can't pick it up in the photo.
I wonder if the SANFL side will wear the same PB's, with a different comp logo.
My issue with it is predicated on the fact that it scales poorly where it is, the fact that it doesn't even appear on half of the things the new logo is on and the typeface being given zero thought.I think I'm the only person that likes where the symmetry of where the 1870 is.
