I’ll be honest - I am a designer. For my sins.

It’s such a subjective profession. I mean you can be a great plumber or doctor or salesman. But even if you do a good job as a designer there is always going to be a bunch of critics. So I understand the dilemma that Stevenage (and those outsiders involved) face when rebranding.

Like some have said - it is just a logo (or badge) and it’s not the end of the world. But you are right (and it was alluded to me today directly by the CEO) that it still costs a lot of money and forces a lot of change either way. I believe it should have been done better - by someone, anyone.

I haven’t had much time to devote to it and I knew it would be just ‘for fun’ ultimately. But had I been aware of the rebrand at an earlier stage I certainly would have offered my services for free (to a point). And I bet I’m not the only Stevenage fan who works as a designer or happens to be good at that kind of thing (even if not for their day job).

That’s the crazy thing. To me football clubs you support are like charity. You give more to them for less. Yet no doubt they did just go to any old outfit and paid their fees. Certainly looks like a poor effort - I wouldn’t be happy with it (and I would have spent far more time to get it right).

But there you go. And I promise not to add to this thread again as it’s already the length of England!

Unless anyone does want the vector artwork for that design G. Happy to upload to a link for anyone to download and use however they please.
