The guy from the previous redesign was involved in this one also. Money for old rope.
This was covered by JV in the lockdown meetup specials over the summer. IIRC he said that the club had a review of whether to continue as-is or to move to a different provider. For a number of reasons (probably that they were locked into a contract!) they decided to continue with the current system.I quite liked the old one...but I do think this one is better. I like the sharp edges at the edges of each letter/number.
What else has Kurt done that the club are planning on changing? (Genuine question). I'm going to hope the ticket site will be one of them...
Over the past 18 months we have been consulting with fans, staff, the owner and other stakeholders about our GPG crest.On a side note I do think it's time to update the GPG Twitter badge...the joke is fairly dated and if you have to explain a joke, then it's a bad one. I think people look at it and think it's a bit sh*t, rather than trying to be some form of commentary.
Designing typefaces is a lot more complex and involved a job than just fiddling around on a computer for 20 minutes.All they've done is take a standard font and make some of the points a bit longer 'to replicate a sting' lol lol
The company that have charged us twice for 20 minutes work must be laughing themselves senseless. I doubt they put any more thought into the colours than a random click on a red colour palette then wrote some guff about the 'decision making journey' as an afterthought.
Meanwhile we still wait to hear if the club can afford to refund unused season tickets per game......
Nerd alert, in addition, The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst is a really interesting and insightful read about the history of typeface development, it can be quite a beautiful process, one to be respectedDesigning typefaces is a lot more complex and involved a job than just fiddling around on a computer for 20 minutes.
