They have spent a lot of time and money on the update. That includes doing away with outdated floppies and trannies.

They sent it via their dial up internet service. And it’s 97% sent so too late to cancel the transfer!

You’re too kind. Well I know it’s all subjective and really not the be all and end all having a decent logo or kit - but when you do you feel even more proud of it. That’s my opinion.

That said... I always think back to that Norwich kit when they beat Bayern against all odds - and as awful as it was it must now forever be beautiful and iconic to Norwich fans. Kind of makes these superficial things irrelevant.

I like that but I’m not sure about the oak growing out of the hart’s head. Reminds me of some fungal disease that Channel 4 would make a programme about. Any way of separating the two? The six hills is a lovely touch.

I really like this because of how strong the stag/hart is as a standalone image.

It seems the modern trend is to create logos which have a central focus that can be removed from the main logo and used as a standalone piece. Much like Aresenal's cannon, Spurs' cockerill, West Ham's irons and Brentford's bee. They want to be able to use the simpler image for a lot of the branding, whilst still making it instantly recognizable.

The stag/hart/whatever on the logo we saw from the club isnt, in my opinion, strong enough. I know the Brentford logo got a lot of stick for being bland and generic, but the actual bee itself is a pretty good, bold design and looks great on it's own.

Whilst I dont love the modern logos, this is considerably better than what has been put forward by the club. The newer version is better (without the stupid arms) but the hart still looks cartoony and isnt a strong image. This, whilst still not perfect, is much much much improved from the club's attempt.

Honestly, if that was what was revealed, I'd actually be delighted. Its modern, but its bold.

Just out of curiosity, are you a graphic designer by profession or just a hobbyist?

I wonder who they actually hired and how they came up with the design that's about to be released.

It's a shame that this process didnt happen sooner, because I really think this badge is superb. Maybe we should just adopt it as the unofficial Borochat logo and just boycott the inferior, official one?!

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.

"Like some have said - it is just a logo (or badge)"

I say it tongue in cheek due to receiving some unwarranted.

It's not just a badge. It's a marker of the club. It's an identity. It's the first thing people see about us online etc (hence the needless change) so to pay for such a poor design is stupid.

Alternatively, for the people who think I'm negative for no reason, it's amazing. Really amazing. Just a badge. Meaningless. Pointless thing to have an opinion on.

It disappoints me that so often the club make decisions which are ultimately well intended, but executed so diabolically. This could have been an exciting project that engaged the fans and resulted in a new image/brand that everyone could be excited about.

Instead, we're left with Rudolf and disappointment.

Yes, the club seem to want us to 'share in the journey' with them but only on selected things it seems. I'm disappointed in the badge. Gitts and Grattz badge is one I'd have been happy to see on my shirt and it has all sorts of Stevenage references which I think is important.

Good one.

Why the f*ck didn't the club ask for contributions before finalising the design (if it is finalised)?

They consulted a fans focus group. Which presumably consisted of a 12 year old and Phil.

Presumably the fan's focus group contained no-one who actually had any graphic design acumen whatsoever.

I bet that piece of shit cost a fortune, too.

I like the use of the Twin Foxes, especially top right. There’s nothing to say that we have to have a hart and if the club wishes to make a change to our identity then I can’t see why it shouldn’t be a complete change (a bit like Sunderland and their black cat).

My only criticism is that the tree doesn’t look like an oak. Great use of the six hills again though.

Correct. The oak is the one Henry VIII hid up to avoid the people from The Cromwell. It was in the garden of the Royal Oak pub. That's why it's called the Royal Oak.

Or something like that.

If anyone liked it enough I’d be happy for someone closer to the club to pass it on knowing I’d donate the vector artwork to them to use and tweak. I’m sure it’s too late though. And some people might hate it!

I think it's a cracking effort and looks very stylish and classy.

Why not just send it to the club at info@stevenagefc.com with a little commentary, and mark it for the attention of Phil Wallace and Alex Tunbridge.......it will only be a yes or a no......seems to good an opportunity to pass by?

Might just do that. Probably will tweak it a tad and then do exactly what you suggested. No doubt it’s too late or fruitless but I will have a go and leave it with them.

Well, it's a much better design in my opinion. I don't know how far down the line they are with things, they could have 10 grands worth of souvenirs locked up in their store cupboard with their design on by now but the badge is clearly better and incorporating the 6 hills, something unique to Stevenage is key for me.

PW has made some shocking decisions in his tenure as chairman but this is one of the worst. Nothing wrong with the old badge and the new badge is splitting opinion when their was nothing wrong with the old badge but as long as it looks “modern” that’s all that matters. 🤷🏻‍♂️

The badge isn’t bad. It’s just really bland.

The kits will probably just look like generic Sunday league kits now. Probably cheaper to produce.

If you changed your wife's name, the way she looked and made her a bit simple, is she the same woman you married? There was a reason you fell in love with her in the first place.

It’s bland as you say. Very weak design and almost school-like badge so as not to take any risks or offend anyone.

Just a shame as it’s like a tattoo that will stay for a long while. It’ll now be filtered into all the kit, merchandise, print, signage, TV and websites, video games, etc. And it’s just poor.

I’ll let it go now as it ultimately isn’t that big a deal but all I would say is that at least having a crest makes it look official and like maybe historically there is a reason for it. This one looks like it was done by proxy and in a hurry to get something out there.

While I still think it was the terrible thing to do and a massive waste of money re branding everything, I'm actually pleasantly surprised compared to what I was expecting. It looks a million times better than that one that was floating around Twitter and posted on here a few weeks ago.

The Hart and the area behind it looks much more professional.

Yes, correct. The other one looks far better. Neither come close to our current one.

It is utterly abysmal. Looks so amateur and childish with a dumb cartoon deer head. Awful.

Our current badge is class.

I quite like the new one. Some will hate it

Whatever the club did they were never not gonna split opinion. But it’s simple effective and doesn't show them getting on their knees for the council. It does what they wanted

Will everyone like the new one? No. Will everyone get over it? Of course

There is a slight chance people are overreacting about a badge

So the main or indeed only object on our new badge is the head of a hart which looks like a reindeer or stag.

Which would be fine if we were called the stags. But we aren't.

The current badge is a coat of arms so the hart isn't the focal point, you know it's a crest and the hart is just one part of it.

I don't mind the style/simplicity of it, I just don't associate a reindeer with Stevenage. I don't know what else you could have used though.

Now we are a bit like Charlton or Walsall where you have no idea why they have a sword and a bird on their badges.

Hey ho. More important things to worry about.

Stevenage might have lots of roundabouts, but Letchworth has the worlds oldest.

Got a 'Notts County' sign on it and everything.

I remember seeing Hale &Pace at the Gordon Craig in the eighties, why ripped the piss out of the shit pedestrian town centre and the roundabouts, so both are clearly quite historical.

I'd have just put a frowning Sharon Taylor with horns caricature inside a blood red pentangle if it were me, and stuck it atop a burning wicker man in the car park.

The six stripes represent the original six areas of Stevenage.

The reindeer represents St Nicholas.

It was either a reindeer or a little plastic bag.

I think either idea would have been amazing.

In fact, the plastic bags that the new shirts will come in could represent the County Lines drug enforcement.

Amazing.

Having the reindeer was one of Dino’s demands when he became manager.

His contract had a Santa clause.

Yeah I was thinking that too.

Old Town, Chells, Shephall, Pin Green, Broadwater, Bedwell, Poplars, Industrial Area
That’s 8...

Questionable Extras:
Symonds Green, etc.
Town Centre
Great Ashby

I guess it’s not as clear cut as the Stars and Stripes on the US flag!!

"In keeping with the sociological outlook of the day, the town was planned with six self-contained neighbourhoods. The first two of these to be occupied were the Stoney Hall and Monks Wood "Estates" in 1951. Next to be built and occupied by the London 'overspill' was Bedwell in 1952 – The Twin Foxes pub was Stevenage's first "new" public house and is still situated in the Bedwell estate. The public house was named after local notorious identical twin poachers (Albert Ebenezer and Ebenezer Albert Fox). Next came Broadwater and Shephall (1953), then Chells in the 1960s and later Pin Green and Symonds Green"

Poplars was a newish Estate in the late 80's-90's from memory.
Great Ashby residents don't like being associated with Stevenage and are under the rule of North Herts Council.

I overheard someone in Waitrose Stevenage the other day say that they lived in "North Knebworth" but gave an SG1 postcode...

I'm terrible. I only popped in for some of their "Aegean Rose Essence and Activated Charcoal Hummus and I left with a basket full of Balsamic and taramasalata.

Aye, but we're not called the harts. Having a badge derived from the Hertfordshire coat of arms made some sense, because we are in Hertfordshire. Now we have a big hart/stag/deer as our badge.
