I dont mind the new logo. I'm a Graphic Designer and i designed this logo for a local Footy Club a few months ago (also called the Crows) Changed it a bit to suit Adelaide.

Not 100% sold on it... but it's a massive improvement on the abomination which the club have actually adopted.

It looks so out of place on the AFL site and afc.com looks so awkward haha
I don't understand why the blue isn't a NAVY blue. I probally would like it better if the colors matched the home jumper

Okay the logo is here to stay :( However I would love it if they get rid of that grade 1 text under the raven face!

Signage around AAMI has changed to the new logo, in case anyone cares. Looks interesting...

Richmonds probably got the best IMO, and we all know their history.....So this could be a good thing, maybe there's a reverse correlation between good logos and sucess.

After seeing the rest, ours would be right up there as the worst. Closely followed by the Powers and Melbournes non existant logo.

It’s a logo; it’s not that big of a deal.

GE money, one of, if not the largest company in the world has a logo that is disgraceful. It’s boring, it's bland but it’s effective. However they still provide a very worthy produce and service. Microsoft, another crap logo, but does anyone really notice this? They still officer a service everyone wants or needs.

The crow’s logo is virtually irrelevant, simply for proof, see Wall-E post about Richmond.

The product or service we provide will take care of any selling point we are offering. The logo doesn’t.

Good point, basically designed to pull the kiddies (please don't turn that dirty) to the club.

The 'logo' of our club to the supporters, and those who fear our club will be Dangerfield, Tippett, Vince, Walker, MacKay etc.

I can't believe the club didn't realise that logo looks like an undefinable blue blob when shrunk.

Except ours is supposed to be featuring on our new away strip.

Exactly. I don't mind changing the logo, I even like the concept of the new logo, it's just a poor attempt at design. This wouldn't normally bother me as much if it weren't for the fact that this dreadful design (which is also the wrong colour) will wind up on the away guernsey so it will be in our face 11 times a year, just on field, take away all the times the image will be re-shown and printed in the media.

they should have surveyed all the members before releasing it. Im sure the club want members and supporters to be happy with the logo as well.

If the club ran every decision past the members they'd never decide anything!

If you poll the members on things like this the anti-change factor would mean everything would stay as it was in 1991. As a club, we can't get stuck like that. Because a lot of Crows fans I speak with are ambivalent the anti-change faction would kill it. The "don't cares" won't vote, a % of those in favour will forget to vote and the vocal minority who hate it will rally 100% and win. It happens all the time in referendums.


I know you aren't suggesting a referendum but even a simple survey becomes pointless unless the club follows the results - turning it into a referendum effectively.

I think in 12 months time the % of people that hate it will be far less. Human nature is that we just get used to things.
