Design Football Episode 2
The Aberdeen logo is great! A very clever twist on the letter A. Inside of the open counter is the football, this is creating a set of goalposts with the football in the goal.
The white background that the date is sitting on creates the pitch. I think the outer ring frames the centre well and overall is a very successful badge.
Swansea city football club. Not just my team but they also a great crest. It's more on the minimal side of football logos with their abstract swan. Just showing the head, neck and wings of a bird. The type also sits well under the swan although personally, I think it is slightly top heavy. To fix this I would make the type a bit bolder this would help balance it out.
I really like clean logos and this certainly is!
Also just to mention they had a pretty awesome badge in the 80s with a swan ruling over a castle. They have used circles with different blue tones to create waves and the sea. A nice touch rather than going with more realistic waves. They kept it clean.
The third and final club crest I want to share in this video is the Birmingham City badge.
Picturing the club as world club this logo is a classic and has been unchanged for a number of years. The distinctive shape makes it stand out. The type across the ribbon is also on point.
However, there is one thing I would change about this logo. The globe. I would defiantly make it more realistic. It's almost like a person with a blind fold on drew it.
Although it still remains one of my favourite football logos.
