We don't celebrate minor premierships in afl
I know. Have you seen the list of Boca's titles?

Seriously, flags will always matter the most, but I believe that Minor premierships should have some sort of recognition. Becoming a star on the badge would do it, for instance.

I've seen the list of Boca's titles but on the other hand I've also seen the list of Pele's goals, so... :sunglasses:

It would be nice if there was a meaningful second prize for the AFL clubs but there just isn't anymore. It's flags or nothing. Even the pre-season was more than a shit and giggle once upon a time.

I see what you did there...
Not final yet, but refined enough to show how it could be crafted a lot better.

Fattened the outer and inner borders and set the bars in a thicker line weight with a reduced number of 'pylons'.
Removed the rounded corners and the 1870, with a more interlocking monogram than the original.


The all black version Looks great as a badge on a beanie.

Would you please put a white outline outside the teal one, so the chevron actually matches the jumper, while still giving it the PB's white collar and cuffs, effectively giving it:

Black
Teal
White

Don't take this the wrong way, but there's a lot more to do on this project* so I wan't be doing any requests from posters. Time is short as it is. I do want to hear thoughts and feedback though.

I have some thoughts on the desire to 'replicate the guernsey' vs the need to design a strong and usable symbol for the long term. Essentially, I think the latter trumps the former and that the better symbols are the simplest ones.


*For the record, I'm working up complete visual identity guidelines for the club that will include merch, mascot, member promotions, etc. This will all be entwined with the BBTB campaign for the offseason and throughout next year. The snippets above are some mid-stage development mockups. (Edit: I should note that this it self initiated, not an official engagement with the club)

Blind emboss for the inner invisible outer shape...

This version looks really nice and as I’ve said before your monogram shits all over the current one. Even little details work like the top serif on the A filling the space inside the P and, you know, the letters actually being the same size. I like how they’re broader too, it just feels stronger.

Another thing I noticed about the current logo is that the monogram isn’t even centred, it’s off to the right and it’s really obvious when you look at it in relation to the Bars. So there’s another tick for your effort. :D

I'm up to iteration #15 on the monogram. Lots of small adjustments to angles and proportions to try to get it right.

My aim is to get the visual space in the counter of the P to match the visual space in the apex of the A to really enhance the interlocking nature of the letters.

One thing that has become very apparent is that the monogram will need size variants to allow for the optical effect of the diminishing stroke:gap ratio, which is a bit of a lost art these days.

bomber, in your mock ups are you using gray silver or shiny premiership cup silver?
